Hi everyone, and especially devs! Recently Roblox has announced that the first phase of Future is Bright (new, better lighting) is now available for beta testing in Studio. This brings the new voxel lighting.
If you're unaware, Future is Bright is a new, more detailed lighting system for Roblox.
This is only to test, so it'll only work in Studio, and not in Roblox Player. You can enable it at Lighting > Technology > "Voxel". Legacy is the current lighting system.
Slight appearance tweaks may happen over the next few weeks as they fine-tune it and rid of bugs. Remember to report bugs if you find them.

When experimental mode is turned on, all clients have the ability to do whatever they want to the game, which is what makes it unsafe. When experimental mode is off, clients can only do what the game developer allows them to do, with a few exceptions. To turn experimental mode off in your game, do the following steps. …Read more >
