Did anyone find a way to brighten shadows in hardware shade mode?

 

Thank you fpr helping

regards

found a solution, its possible when turning the shadow throwing light very low. Use two lights, one to lighten the scene and one very low to throw shadows...

Check shadow transparancy in ground plane options from hardware shade options.

 

Window Diaplay > Hardware Shade Options

 

Enable Environment Effects > Ground Plane (should be ticked on)

 

Edit Environment > Ground Plane > Shadow Transparancy !

...these "buttons" only control the shadows on the ground. Are they supposed to have effect also on "self shadows"?

I still use 2010...did this change in 2011?

 

kind regards
