Shadows on Water and Objects

The Sunshadows behave in a weird way, when hitting the water surface.

 

Where does this behavior come from?

 

Thx.

Okay, ....

I found out, that it has something to do with the softness.

 

This when turn the softness OFF in the > Rendering > Shadows > Softness, then the shadow is hard on the water as well.

 

But it doesnt correspond with the softness Slider of the world Light.

Turning the slider to 0 makes all the shadows on the hard surfaces hard, but leaves it on on the water.

 

Is there a distinct factor somewhere, which regulates the softness for the water??

Best.

Hi Werner,

 

I'm afraid, we can't reproduce such issue, so it would be helpful if you can send us a minimal test scene with a stick, water and problematic sun position.

 

Thanks!
