View Full Version : Raytraced Shadows

04 April 2004, 04:22 PM
is there a way to control the color of my raytraced shadows outside of cranking up an ambient light? i know with dmap lights you can change the color of your shadow but what about raytraced shadows?

Are you going to be rendering in Mental Ray? If yes, you can apply a MR shadow shader.

The shadow color attribute is for both d-map and raytraced shadows AFAIK.
