Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Hey Scottc91 -

Take a look at our Lighting Troublshooting Guide on the Wiki. That should help you find and solve the cause of your problem.

Thank You

Thanks figured it out my movable light had cast static shadow enabled and my skylight also had cast shadows turned on which must of messed up shadowing on the build

Hello! What exactly did you do. You just turn off cast static shadow on light? Or on skylight? I has the same problem and don't know how to fix it. Thank you!

On my directional light make sure it's movable and cast static shadows turned off. My sky light I just turn off cast shadow, hope that helps!

Thank you! I turned off cast shadows, but it won't work for my project. I just delete my skylight and place default new one, and it works! Thank you guided on the right path!
