Can you explain, because when I walk away from the objects, the shadows disappear. In this way render a distant camera are of low quality.
It is possible to solve the problem
Thanks Hugo

Hi Renovatio and hugorvp,

In the Build section
Increase the Shadowmap Range slider:
Weather -> Lighting -> Shadowmap Range

A low value will make the shadows near the camera crisp, but the shadows in the distance will disappear sooner.

A high value will make the shadows in the distance show up, but the shadows close to the camera will be blurrier.

In the Movie section
Use the Shadow Range effect (New effect -> Scene effects -> Shadow range) to set the optimal range for each clip, depending on how far you can see. Bear in mind that this value can be animated by clicking on the 'Create keyframe' button next to the slider.
