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"

Very Hard Shadows on Low Poly Mesh/Material

Hello Folks,

I was wondering if someone could take a look at this screen shot and give me some advice for how to keep these very dark shadows from being so distracting. It is a procedural mesh, and I could be wrong, but I believe the mesh is fine and that since the normals are perpendicular to each face it is resulting these harsh black shadows on any plane at certain sharp angles.

Here is the screenshot:

and here is a pic of part of the material: alt text

here it is at blueprintue, but be warned it's a real work-in-progress and :) I don't know what I'm doing.

I have unchecked the Tangent Space Normals box.

Any hints as to a good way to address this would be greatly appreciated!
