Version 0.97d - shadow problem [BUG]
« on: October 27, 2008, 07:25:17 pm »

Hello,

when I was using anim8or I realiced, that it is impossible to turn of shadows for single objects whenn using ART. This is very imported when you want to render some textured objects with a transparent map (for example smokeparticles). This looks only real without shadows.

Can someone help? Thanks.

Have you tried unchecking the cast/receive shadows of the objects? This is the normal way to not let the object cast/receive shadows. Else go view>preferences and uncheck shadows at file output.

Yes I have tried to uncheck the cast/receive shadows of single objects. Maybe I made a mistake, but I donīt think. I donīt want to go to preferences, because I only want to let take the effect on single objects, not for all objects in the scene.

But thanks for your help.

Ok, I have tried to do it again and it is definitely not working.

-> Steve, can you fix it in the next version?

I think this has been up before - Steve said that ART does shadows for the whole scene and you can't choose which objects to exclude.
