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"

No. Raytraced distance field shadows exist to make up for the lack of soft shadows achieved with static lighting. So they work with dynamic lighting only.

Thanks for your quick reply! That's a pity though because the shadows look very nice. I'm optimizing a scene for VR so we don't have the render budget for fancy things like Distance Fields and we need to bake everything down.
