How many lights

Adding many point lights and some spotlights, the frame rate is not impacted.


I would like to know what if there is some scene limit lights ?

You can place as many lights as needed, so there is no limit as too how many lights can be used to render.
Obviously, performance is the biggest limiting factor and shadows is one of the biggest. Lights that don't cast shadows will run much quicker.

Also, with point lights and spots. The smaller the light, the faster it will run :)
