Big window shadow

Post by Leandro Oliveira » Thu Sep 10, 2020 1:12 pm

Guys, I have a room with a big window, and the shadows don´t look like realistic. Near the chair legs, the shadows should be more sharp, but shadows are too much soft. The light comes from a HDR. There is some setup specific for this?

Hard to say anything without a blend file. check your floor normals.

Ok it is just a bad HDri issue Too flat to deliver sharp shadows.

It works with direct light (from sun light or HDR), but I´d like a diffuse light (ambient), without sun light entering directly in the room.

So just use an HDRi with the same light/shadow profil OR a sun with appropriate size for full control.
