Hey, following the final bit about spinning lights here:
http://art-design.smsu.edu/yarberry/Courses/Reference/StudentTutorials/RotatingLights/rotating%20lights.htm

But for some reason when I follow these directions on fixing those shadows, I lose them completely. Anyone have an idea what I'm doing wrong?

I'm gonna post some pics to show whats up.


Here's the first one: this is what it looks like after following the instructions (no shadows here and the white plate on the bottom is black).

How it looks before doing the steps to make fuzzy shadows.

Cant be having that kind of shadow.

Anyone know whats going on?

Thanks!

Always render at frame 1 not 0 which will shows soft shadow when you using a spinning lights trick.

Duh, yea I figured it out, just not paying attention. Thanks.

EDIT: nevermind, I didnt, I cannot seem to get this to work. I'm on frame 1, but its still not right. I downloaded that source file he had but it is only the part before the fuzzy shadows.
