Dynamic shadows not casting on Foliage tool? (Pictures)
I'm using the foliage brush tool to spray trees around a landscape. Both dynamic and static shadow boxes are ticked, however when I build the scene a majority of the dynamic shadows don't render. I'm assuming the dynamic and statics shadows are visible based on camera distance? How can I get all the dynamic shadows to show within its threshold?

I am actually dealing with a similar post where the user is attempting to understand how to receive static shadows on his foliage. The post can be found here along with your answer.
What you are looking to change is your Stationary Lights Shadow Distance.
Essentially you need to find the correct transition range between your Static Shadows and your Dynamic Shadows.
Here is the documentation link for where I found this information, which you will also find helpful.
Finally, here are the settings you will want to change within the Editor.
These settings can be found within the 'Details' tab of your 'Directional Light' settings.
Let me know if you are able to effectively get your shadows to work, or if you are still struggling to find the correct distances between your static and dynamic shadows for your foliage.
