    Hi,

    is there a way to find out if/where a shadow is casted on my object (generator) from within the generator?

    Thanks in advance
    Samir

    I don't think so. I guess your generator needs to cooperate with a shader or material plugin. This can access the shadow information during rendering. I assume that's what the shadow material in the Shave plugin is doing.

    For full support just write a VP plugin with raytracing flag. Generator VP communication and you are set. Obviously this going to be slow ( same as using render setting is displaceVIEW ). Be careful of GI, blurred reflections / transparencies etc..

    Hi both of you,

    thanks for the reply. I will then try a VP or material.
