Hi,
playing with last version available for download and I miss self shadowing feature. If I put object any to scene, it throws shadow to floor, but not on himself. In 0.7 it was right.

And second question about shadows - do you have plan to add shadows to point and spot lights?

Thanks..
Tom

ehm... sorry, it's my fault, I used "Constant" material.. in BlinnPhong is self shadowing functional..

Hi Tom!! How are you?

A little comment: Ambient occlusion (selft shadows) alters only the ambient light, local lighting can only be alter with shadows.

“Do you have plan to add shadows to point and spot lights?” I have to add the spot lights first :p

I promised you this feature a long time ago, sorry.

I’m writing my master thesis, so now I have half the time (or less) to spare in the project. For now I’m improving the HDR pipeline and the car paint shader. Then… I really don’t know yet. But, I have to do it!!

Bye José!!

Hi :) You remember.. :) you have good memory! Thanks for replies.

 I need them for night scenes, but at this time I have much work on other things, so "plan to add" satisfied me :)

Bye, Tom

Hi Tom!

I added the spot lights, fixed some shadow bugs, improved some functionality related. Also, I’m trying to add light masks right now.
