View Full Version : Wierd jagged shadows on render

03 March 2006, 12:31 AM
Hi I have in my scene 2 lights. One directional one area light. For some reason when I render the shadows turn out like the attachment. Does anyone know a cure for this? It's not AA and ive tried adjusting the shadow res and that only made the jaggies smaller but there still there.

that could be due to the angel of the angel of the area light

when using area light with shadow some times a phenomena called "termenator" happend
I know it sound stupied

switch to spot light with your shadow that should fix it....

The Z-Depth of the dmap shadow seems to low. No idea if it can be changed or not tho.
Use raytraced shadows instead, only thing I can think of that solvs it.
