    ppl attenuation on 3 axis

    Attenuation doesn`t work if brightness is different on one of the 3 axis.

    I use
    texCoords.x = lightVector.x/(light->brightness.x * 8) + 0.5f;
    texCoords.y = lightVector.y/(light->brightness.y * 2) + 0.5f;
    texCoords.z = lightVector.z/(light->brightness.z * 2) + 0.5f;

    where lightVector is the tangent space vector of the light ( non tangent light vec = ligh.origin - vertex )

    Now if x isn`t equal to y and z the attenuation is not correct, what is wrong ?

    You don't attenuate light by changing the length of the light vector.

    You use attenuation as a factor to modulate either the light illumination or the final dot product.
