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"

Dynamic shadow from stationary directional light shows on top of shadow caster

Above a certain distance the dynamic shadow shows up on top of the mesh, that is casting the shadow instead of behind the mesh.

Shadow Problem at distance

No Problem closer to the mesh

The stationary directional light is not set to use Cascaded Shadow Maps. And I am using the following commands to increase the distance at which shadows are visible:




I have tried changing r.Shadow.TransitionScale to fix the problem, but to no avail. Obviously I could fade out the shadow above the problematic distance, but that's not what I want to do. Do you have any other idea, how I could fix the problem?

I just tried changing the stationary lights shadow bias, but it does not seem to have any effect.
