View Full Version : GI and shadow problem

09 September 2004, 03:17 AM
when i'm using GI i only get shadows inn the direct illumination areas, but i also want shadows inn the only GI areas. i tryed to use the dirtmap shader to fake shadows but i'm not getting the result i want.

Anyone know how to get this working?

GI and no shadow

There's a checkbox in the Render Globals within the GI/Caustics section called 'Allow direrct illumination shadow effects' (or something like that) which I think might be the answer.

the "Allow direrct illumination shadow effects" didn't make any difference, i tryed to apply a shadow shader too. but still no shadows.

this is realy strange i used GI alot but i never notic this problem
