hi 2 all

this is on my wish list, but i was wondering, is there a plugin

floating around that would create a shadow map using a point

light ??

If not how do i go about creating one ??

If anybody has any knowledge about writing plugins who could

give me a few tips, or who can help in any way then that would

be great thanks a lot

Why would you need that ? Just use a spotlight, or if you need shadowmaps in all directions, use 6 of them pointing to all directions with a 45 degree cone angle.

just use a spot light from the same position where the point light is, and if you dont want any light from the spot and you only want a shadow from it, just duplicate the spot lite, turn off the shadow in the duplicate lite and put a negative sign in front of the intensity number . so now you have a spotlite shadow, but only the point light is casting light.
