View Full Version : Mr Shadow map problem

06 June 2011, 10:46 AM

I have a problem with smooth dmap shadows in mentalray. The goal is to get soft shadows for hair/fur. The light source has to be far away in order to get more or less parallel rays. But then I have a problem as you can see on the right sphere - there is a bright line where it should be dark. The more I blur, the worser it will be.

Does anyone know a solution for this problem?

Did you try to play with bias?

Yes, no success at all, it even gets worse.
