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"

Area Shadow From Stationary Light Looks Much Worse Than Static Light Shadow

I am noticing a lot of artifacting when using a stationary light with area shadows checked that DOES NOT happen if I make the same light a static light. When marked static the shadows get smoothed out and look nice even at low resolution.

Shouldn't area shadows on stationary lights be the same as a static light? Is there a limitation I am unaware of? There is a ton of banding in the stationary light version, like multiple shadows laid on top of one another, vs the nice soft effect of the static light.

Thanks for any help
