Try emission with baked mode in Unity



How can i bright surface without using lighting object?
For example case, if a scene has a fixed object (such as a large display) that can emits light.

In the Unity manual, if you enable the Emission property on a material based on the Standard shader and assign the material to an object, it will emit light.

Adding emission to a Material makes it appear as a visible source of light in your Scene. The Material emission properties control the color and intensity of light that the surface of a Material emits.
