View Full Version : Area Shadow Problem

06-05-2009, 09:14 AM
Hi all! I have a little problem with shadows...
I put an AREA Shadow out from window, the result with Mental ray is a segmented shadow on the wall.
When I make it softer then I have a lot of noise. 2 problems! 2 damned problems...
Can someone help me? I think it's simple but I can't go out from this...

I attached a preview...

Increasing the 'Shadow Rays' will help reduce the noise created... however render times will start to increase considerably. Are you using Maya's default area light?
