View Full Version : Can shadows be removed from singular objects in scene?

I've got a machine that the client wants to show movement by using arrows (it's a static drawing, no animation - yet). Out of a dozen arrows, the client wants two to be without shadows. As I understand it, shadows are a product of the light, so how can I dump these objects from the light so they don't cast a shadow?

The lighting is very simple, only two lights from opposing ends of the machine, so only one light affects the offending arrows.

Thanks!

Under the Object Properties window there are shadow options for your objects. Set those arrows to "Don't Cast Shadow".

Thanks! Works like a charm.

Been driving me nuts for two days!
