[RESOLVED] How to Get Soft Shadow ?
« on: July 30, 2019, 10:47:49 pm »
Hello Keyshot Forum I need help in one of these renders for lightning.
As you can see in this setup I am getting very hard shadows but I need to achieve soft shadows, if I Increase the radius of the pin the brightness gets very high and even if I adjust the brightness accordingly the shadows have no effect whatsoever.
So If anyone could help me if will be of great help.
I am using Dosch Apartement_2k environment with manual 1 pin.
Thanks

Hello brahmzxc,

Thank you for sumbitting this post. It looks like you brough down the HDRI's brightness and that you are using "Pin #1" as the main light source. From your settings I can see that the pin's brighness is very high and the Radius is small. The contrast between your background and the pin is very high. I would suggest bringing down the pin's brightness. You can also get rid of the pin and instead use physical lights to create the desired effect.

Below you will find relevant tutorials and how-to articles.
