Having problems with shadows
« on: May 08, 2008, 03:26:12 pm »

Me again, are you sick of all the questions yet?.. No,,, Good,
here is what I am doing and then the problem will follow.
I have an object flying over a landscape, I have a light (infinate) shinning down, I have everything ticked to give and recive shadows, and that works. But here is the problem, on some frames everthing looks great then for now reason I will get a big dark shadow that comes out of nowhere and will last on the screen for a few frames then go, THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN BE GIVING OFF THIS SHADOW!!!,,

Just a guess, since you didn't post an image of "good" and "bad" frames, but make certain that you've set the light(s) to cast only Ray-Traced shadows.  Don't use Shadow Maps, as they have been buggy since day one.
