View Full Version : ragged harsh shadows

10-13-2003, 07:43 PM
was just wondering if anyone could help me- i am getting these ragged or fuzzy shadows on my semi-transparent objects even at enhanced medium antialiasing and all ray-tracing options on. is there a way of setting the shadows to be softer?

Well- I know you said "raytraced" shadows...but are you using a "shadow mapped" spot light? If so I'd at least double your shadow map size as well as play with the Shadow fuzziness. Sorry if I'm wrong...

You might also try turning off Adaptive Sampling in the Camera Properties window.

Or in case of an area light with raytraced shadows... Up the quality and the size of the area light...

Increase your shadow fuzziness something like 5 or more which will be soft edge.
