For 'standard lighting' materials there are a couple of 'Illuminant' libraries in the Downloads section that have common lighting characterisitics that can be applied to mesh emitters.

For IES lights there's a tutorial ; a test scene in ; a sample IES library .

I think there are many companies that have the IES files of the lights they make, available for downloading....

http://www.lalighting.com/ies.html

and many more.... ("ies files" in google)

No easy solution for you, unless you happen to use Autodesk MAX or VIZ, for those ERCO also supports the technology known as i-drop. This enables user-friendly, interactive insertion of luminaire geometry, including the photometric data, direct from the web-site.

(assuming you use SU)
I think that with latest SU & dynamic components something similar is possible to do, but you need to find someone for that job or create own components and modify SU2KT that it will export IES lights too. If someone is willing to start this kind of project, I am sure KT team will give him all support he/she needs.

Fastest way, at the moment, might be that you narrow down used IES lights, place proper light models in SU with KT omni lights, name those lights based to the IES file that you will use, and the in KT replace omni lights with IES lights.

There is a modified SU2KT that should export IES lights, , but I have not tested it... it's said to work.

There are some applications that will "graph" an IES light's profile for you, even render it. Unfortunately it's tough to compare intensity of lights unless you look at the raw numbers and know what you are looking for. At the very least, it could help you find the right "style" of light.

Search for iesviewer. There are several versions out there on the web, the newer ones have "rendered" previews. I use 2.9 which may be the most recent...

Thanks to you both. I am looking for the right IES viewer. I also searched the forums for "IES Viewer" and found once again Fletch's KT Scene which allows viewing, which I have already been working with. If I am understanding correctly, using IES with KT is "in its infancy" and it is no easy trick simply to get a light from a manufacturer's catalog and then match it to a usable IES file for KT. I will continue to try to grapple with this, and apologies again if I am repeating old questions. I don't always know what search words to use within the KT forums, and/or don't always recognize the answers as I read them.
