this is a link to a animation Ive done, the problem is the shadows...how do you make them fainter and more datailed, I mean if you look at the shadows from the grass...there blocky and big.....the shadow res is 1024 making it higher doesnt seem to make a difference...


cheers

First, you probably want to turn off the automatic width focus. That scales the map to fit your scene, and it looks like your moving clouds are causing the flickering of the shadows.

Then with the auto focus off, set it to just fit over the bits you need to cast shadows.
