I bought this model: https://www.daz3d.com/european-style-apartment by Roguei but i have an isuue with light. I can get the light enter the windows... it comes light but no intense shadow, like sunlight, event if a put a light directed to the window. I've tried to remove the opacity map, to lower the opacity to zero or even using a Iray glass shader, but the only way to have the light is hidding the window. Is there any way to solve this?

Even when you put the ligh emitters outside the window, the emission effect is blocked by the window

    According to the promo pics the windows emit light that you can control via various presets.

    You need an Iray something, iirc, to actually get the light to enter - presuming I am remembering correctly.

    it is difficult to light interior scenes in Iray, particularly if light is traversing a refractive material like glass.  I am not an expert in lighting in Iray, but I think this is why the PA created the emission surfaces at the window - these window emission surfaces are "ghost lights", used to simulate light coming through the window, otherwise you will not have enough light in the room.

    You attached two images (01 and 02) but did not describe what either of these images meant?

    Living in northern europe, the heating systems have gone under the floor. No radiators visible anymore.

    Not familiar with the term "radiation shielding"... The effects of Chernobyl were not THAT severe wink

    Yep, that's the place. If you zoom in far enough near the north pole, you can see my cache of retired cars - Trying hard to warm up the surroundings as firewood is hard to come by.

    that product use two intensity light, "cold" and "warm"
    you can disable all window lights and place a "plane" outside where you apply "emissive" shader on it

    - then you can mix all lights plane and window to create your desired ligh effect 

    for sun effect, you can also use the "sun" direction of the "dome"

    juanjoharo, did you turn the lumens up high enough? I set mine to 10,000,000 and it shows up fine.
