Shadows Fall Off in Distance

Hi, it looks like Lumion used to have some functionality that allowed users to set shadows to stay on in distant objects. Is it still there but in a different location? I believe it was previously called "Shadowmap Range" or "Shadow Range" but I can't find it anywhere.

Cheers.

To be clear, my current lumion project I am specifically trying to examine the appearance of an object at great distance, approx. 1 mile, and I would really like the object's shadows to be showing up. Right now the shadows cast by my object (which is imported) disappear when I back away from my object at about 300 feet or so.

Hi bakergalloway, the Shadow Range slider is located in the Shadows effect in the Movie/Photo section. The maximum range in Lumion 4.0.4 is currently 1440m.

There used to be a separate Shadow Range slider in Build mode in earlier versions of Lumion but the default value is now hard-coded in this mode.

TIP: Use the Build with effects button in the top left corner of Photo/Movie mode to preview your model in Build mode, but with all effects including customised shadows turned on.
