Shadow
« on: November 05, 2008, 05:08:42 PM »
well, thanks for the custom id release  :)

next question is about the shadows you can see in the attached picture.
i am using FP3.03b, rended with MR, FP object with two planes, direct light with raytrace shadow.
In the middle of the shadow the shadow is cut out. Any ideas why?

thanks
klaus

I've seen this problem before, but now i don't remember what was the cause (some light parameter, i think)

Can you upload here a test scene to check it ?

okey, i have found the troublemaker:
the causer is MR.
In the Rendering dialog under the tab "Renderer" i turned "Use-autovolumen" on, and this option uses in the "shadow&displacement" tab the method "segments". This is the reason for the cutted shadow.
thx
