View Full Version : Lights shining through mesh problem!

05-11-2007, 04:53 AM
Its probably something simple, but I'm having problems with some spacecraft meshes I downloaded off the net. In a space scene with a light as the sun, the light shines right through the model. I have fade behind objects turned on in the light propertys. However, if I create an object myself, and place it in the scene, the light does fade behind my own object.Can't understand why its not working for the downloaded objects. Any ideas?

Check out Render Globals whether there are Ray-Trace Shadows and others with "Ray-Trace" prefix turned on..

If I were given to being cheeky, I'd add that reading the manual would also be a start. If there's genuinely something wrong, you haven't given nearly enough information. Example content showing what you are struggling with would really help. Something simple to illustrate what you are trying to do.
