I made some cloud shadows in a pre-1.0 Lumion version but I did not like the look. Maybe we can bring it back again as an optional feature in 2.0 :D

It would look better with true alpha transparency instead of just "clipping".  :-9

True. Although definitely cool effect, the very sharp shadow edges give it away a bit.

In Lumion 2.0 we'll go to a deferred engine so we can add a movie effect to add cloud shadows.

Now that would be extremely cool and ad to the feel of realism a lot! Can hardly wait!

You´re right.
I played around with shadow range and DOF, but it took no effect. Perhaps smooth shadows of alpha-textures will be possible, when an alpha-channel with greyscale for semi-transparencies is supported.
Thats one for the wish-list, i think.  :-D

That's a great idea...it adds a lot to the realizm of the scene.
