soft shadows 
By Kebdn on Sep 12, 2002 06:46 AM
Hello everyone,
I've got a problem by rendering the image at the bottom of this message. I use TrueSpace 4.3 and I want to add soft shadows to the image. Is there any other way than using shadowmaps??

here is the picture!

You may want to take a look at virtualight, it's a plugin, but I don't know if they have a 4.x version. (would hope so). Otherwise you may want to check the PrimitiveItch site and look into Shaderlab. you might be able to find something that would help.
Of course, with 5 and up, you get things like RayCatcher, which really help for soft shadows.

Lastly, without plugins and upgrades, have you tried a radiosity solution on the scene ? I've had mixed results with shadows, but I think that's my lighting setups more than anything else. ::)

Hey, BTW I'm a 4.3 user too.

You can also use clusters of lights bundled together and pointing in the same direction with a little offset variation to create softer shadows, it takes a little experimentation on setting up the lights, but it can be done without plugins.

The smoothies give rise to fake shadows that appear qualitatively like soft shadows without the cost of densely sampling an area light source .

Soft shadows provide valuable cues about the relationships between objects becoming sharper . Several real-time soft shadow algorithms have been introduced which all compute a single .
