Soft Shadows

You can achieve more realistic shadows in your 3D scenes by controlling the Blur and Penumbra values on your light parameters.

  1. Go to Environment Settings and on the Shadows property select “Soft”.
  2. The “Detail” property is set to Low by default which means that it’s faster but also more noisy. You can change it to Normal or High to get smoother results.
  3. Then select your light and you’ll notice that some new parameters are now available for Directional and Spot Lights:
    • Blur - Controls the general blurriness of the shadow.
    • Penumbra - Controls the blurriness across the distance of the shadow.
