View Full Version : render buffer shadow problem HELP PLEASE

06 June 2003, 03:43 AM
Please help,

Iím rendering an extra shadow layer with the render buffer export, the problem is that the shadow is not in the right place if I hit F10, if I render a single frame everything looks OK.
Damn, must be something stupid I forgot I know it worked before, I just canít get it to work right now !!!

PLEASE HELP ITíS 5 am and Iím really pissed and tired !!!! :cry:

Well, it's a little bit of a workaround, but you could save copies of the objects which are receiving the shadows and set their alpha to shadow density...then just save this out as a separate scene, and screamer render them both. :shrug:

Thanxs Trible G !

Still not working your way, there is just something wrong with the shadow overall, it's only OK if I render a single frames.

Not just with the buffer export !!! The Shadow is always wrong when I render sequences !

Damn, never happened before !!!

damn, the search function on this forum is great !!!

Problem solved !!!


using the cache map feature WILL screw up animations, espescially if motion blur is on.. only for stills.

Aw, man....I had that happen to me once too....took me an hour or so of banging my head against the wall to figure it out. Sorry I didn't think of that...probably could've saved you some frustration. :hmm:
