Hello everyone,

There are three methods for detection of glare source when using evalglare. There is nothing in my model of office such as a table or a computer. How to choose a suitable method when I use evalglare in radiance ?

If I want to use fixed value threshold what should this fixed value be set to , 2000cd/㎡ ?

yes the 2000 cd/m² is a recommended threshold value to use, if you are going for the threshold method.
