View Full Version : LW shadow map break-ups

10 October 2002, 02:14 PM
I would like to know how I can solve this problem with the lighting of this leaf, if I use an area light then the shadow works fine, but the rendertimes suck. So if I change to a spotlight I can use a shadow map with soft edges but as the highlighted area shows it breaks-up. The model was done using nurbs in Lightwave modeller then opened in layout.

Please help!

cheers guys!

I can't see the attached picture, but I think you may want to increase the shadow map resolution.

I don't think its the shadow map size - this is well over 1500.

I will try another ext. on the image:

I saw this in another thread. Bump the shadow map up to 10,000and see what happens.
