Double sided material : shadows

Double sided material : shadows

Postby SpiderMack » 26 Sep 2017, 11:57

Hi,

I think shadows are a common problem in many games.

When i activate double sided for a material, shadows have standard jaggies that is hardware.

It is possible to add some option in "Double Sided" to remove shadows, or some option to decrease the jaggies effect ?


I don't think it's something important, but it could perhaps be improved for future releases.

yes, you can adjust the shadowmap bias on the first tab of the material editor to push the shadows further away, do this on the leaves though otherwise there may be a gap where the trunk meets the floor.
