Title: shadows disappear
Post by: CgRod on June 18, 2012, 05:59:58 pm
Hi,
a question, if I move away from the model, eg a tree, the shadows cast begins to disappear.
how keep the shadows with a distant camera?

regards

Hi CgRod,

Weather settings -> Shadow Range

This is also available as a movie effect that you can animate.

it is good to experiment with using the animation effect with shadow range so that you can keep it low as possible for closeup shots because the quality is better. then, you can increase for shots that look into the distance and require a farther range.

Great tip!  This is very useful for larger aerial master plan animations.  Thanks!
