View Full Version : Artifacts on Geometry when rendering Shadows??

04 April 2008, 05:40 PM
I've got some artifacts on some geometry when i try to render either ray-traced or depth-map shadows. No artifacts are present when its rendered without the shadows...but as soon as i use shadows i get these artifacts.

I've checked the direction of the normals...they all point out. I've also set the normals to face.

The problem still persists. Any ideas??

Thnx much. :bounce:

Are your render settings set to production, or are you ant aliasing?
