How make dynamic shadow (Stationary light)
I open the blank project with this 2chairs and table. Direct Light is set to stationary and if I change a chair to movable and bake the lighting. The shadow of the chair disappears.... And in the details section for the chair under Lightning cast dynamic shadow is checked and for the directional light cast dynamic shadow is checked.
So why is there no dynamic shadow for the movable chair??????
thanks a lot.
Hey Gygoracdes -
A Stationary Directional Light produces two types of shadows, a Dynamic Shadow which only renders with a set range of the object casting and the player's camera, and the Static Shadow which renders past the Dynamic Range. This Range can be altered by adjusting the "Dynamic Shadow Distance Stationary Light" settings in the Light's Detail Panel.
Since the item is movable it will not ever cast a Static Shadow and will not have a shadow after a certain distance from the camera, assuming that is what you have setup.
I think that this is your problem, either adjust the Range Parameter or ensure that the camera is close enough to the actor to render shadows.
Let me know if this doesn't fix your issue, feel free to also post screenshots of the issue as well
