Shadow more dark

Post by twintower31 » Wed Oct 14, 2009 12:47 pm

Hi,

First I'm not an expert in Sketchup.
I'd like to know how to obtain darker shadows, like when it's not lighted, like in the two screenshots joined.

Thanks,

This because you have lighting "Resolution" too low. Assuming the scale of your stadium is correct, then lighting at 50cm intervals will give a much better result.

Once you're happy with the sunlight, you can then add in some AO to fill in the very dark areas.

Hi Adam,

In fact, it was a question of scale of the model. It works like a charm now !
Thanks for your help.
