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"

Capsule shadows cast onto emissive objects

I'm experimenting with stylized shadows to allow unlit, toon characters to cast shadows onto a static, PBR environment.

Capsule shadows seem to be almost perfect for this goal but for some reason they also cast onto emissive materials, for example, the shadows cast onto the ground are correct and what I want, but shadows on the shoes and foot in the image are incorrect as those shaders are unlit and have no base color, only emissive color.

I'm assuming this is a bug, as dynamic shadows shouldn't cast onto emissive unlit objects, and they don't under any other lighting set up, only when shadow capsules are used.
