Light settings

Draw full then disable. This draws the full image without shadows, then disables the plugin. It effectively turns the Flashlight object into a Sprite.

Enable redraw. Set whether the plugin will detect and then redraw the shadow shapes. If it is set to disabled and there are shadows already being rendered then these shadows will remain in place with the plugin disabled.

Light height. Set the pixel height for the light.

Light radius. Set the radius of the light source, in pixels.

Light shadows
