    In shaded views there is a problem with the soft shadows simulation. In both volumetric and enhanced qauality modes you can enable soft shadows. They do not work in Volumetric mode. I would be very grateful if this can be solved easily.

    I am working on a project in VR and this is the only reason I have to work in enhanced mode, which is a real pain, because everything else looks better in volumetric mode.

    Hello Floriaan


    I’m not seeing the issue so far with R45 (or the R46 beta):

    Below are 2 comparative screenshots with Soft Shadows disabled then enabled in Volumetric Mode.

    Enabled

    Could you please send a screenshot of the result you are seeing (if different to the ‘disabled’ screenshot) along with your actual project file to tech support, so we can check if there’s some additional parameter that’s causing the issue?

    Also please let us know your system specs (Mac or PC) and the version of wysiwyg you are using.
    Thanks

    I am on Wyg R46 beta 1 (also seeing it on R45). I am using a windows PC with a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

    We are seeing the following:
    Volumetric with soft shadows: (notice the pixelated shadows through the alpha transperency)

    Volumetric no soft shadows:

    Enhanced no soft shadows: (this shows the acurate shape of the alpha layer)

    Enhanced with soft shadows: (this has the best soft shadows)
