My recommendation about shadow settings for those working with interiors

I wanted to mention, for those working in interiors, the importance of the shadows settings, and of probably most times setting them to “on.” The difference in the results can be remarkable. Sometimes if I’m not happy with a result, I look up and realize I don’t have the shadow settings “on.” With settings “on” Veras seems to understand the scene more and is more accurate and realistic. Shadows “off” can also be beautiful in some situations, but I almost never use it. I’m not referring to wherever the sun lands on the scene, a different issue, I’m just talking about the importance of that shadows button being pushed “on” when rendering. (I work on the model, however, with the shadows off, as it can slow things down.)

Examples attached are raw untouched images.

P.S. It’s been a pleasure to work with the new 1.4 and 1.5 engine 5.


This is great!!! Thank you for the explanation and exploring how shadows affect the renders.
