    Question
    My lighting in Max looks too bright or too dark using photometric lighting objects

     

    Answer
    1 - Check the model units and the distance from surfaces

    2 - Check the brightness of your lights (100watt bulb is roughly the same as 140 candelas)

    3 - Check your exposure settings, use a preset to get a ballpark EV value (8 - interiors, 14 - exteriors)

    4 - Check your indirect lighting and final gather (if using mental ray)
