EnvMap Resolution (Shadows with EnvMaps)

Post by seyacat » Fri Sep 19, 2003 9:07 pm

My english is poor but i try to explain to you...

I found a method to make shadows usin the EnvMap, and the best part is this method can make shadows to objects with alfa channel and particles systems.

The method is here (in spanish)
http://seyacat.andpalnet.com/blender/envmapshadow.php
And some tests in forum of Nicodigital
http://www.nicodigital.com/xoops/html/m ... um=1#15073

Well! my peticion is if you can add more resolution to EnvMap, because this is the unique problem in the shadows

Thanks

Hi,
Your first link doesn't seem to work, and the second link appears to take forever to load, its in spanish and it seems I have to register to use the forum.
Could you explain your technique in English please?
And screenshots of the main steps might help...
Thanks,
Luke.

Hi,
I don't fully understand what you mean....
Could you upload a blend file onto the internet or email me a blend file?
I have a hotmail email address and it ends with @hotmail.com it starts with iljwamh1234567890
(I separated it like that because sometimes automated spam software collects email addresses from websites)
