Hi guys ,
I use Maya and i encounter a problem with shadow map .
I use an arealight with this shadow attributes :

Dmap resolution : 400
Dmap filter size : 1
Dmap bias : 0.001
Fog shadow intensity : 2
Fog shadow samples : 20

Look at this , how can i do soft edge without sharp :shrug: .
Could someone know how to fix this problem ? thanx

try these:

DMAP Res=256
DMAP Filter Size=5

& play with numbers higher than 5 for more blur edge

also may setting the AA to high & changing the antialaising samples (in render global win) to 2 would be helpfull.
