Disabling Particle Self-Shadowing?
Hi, I recently started using UE 4 and I've been having a blast with the particle systems. A moment ago I tried to make some clouds but I'm having some trouble with the shadows of it. I set it to cast a shadow in the details panel after placing it but it also ends up casting a shadow on itself. I tried messing around with the shadow options but unfortunately it's either no shadows or shadow on self.
I wouldn't be surprised if I'm missing the obvious but I've limited to problem down to the details panel, the material and particle system shouldn't cause this problem since when shadows are disabled it looks fine.
Thanks and sorry if I missed the topic that answered the same question.

Hi Dakarun -
The settings you will want to adjust are actually in the Material under Translucency Self Shadowing, look **here** for more information.
If you are still having difficulties let us know. Thank You -
