Recently I downloaded blender 2.8 for the new real-time render engine, but then I found out that the shadow in the eevee is really unexpected. Just like shown above, the quality of the shadow is bad and the movement of the shadow is also strange when I move the object. The lamp is a sunlight, and the sphere and the plane are just preset meshes. Could you tell me what adjustment do I need to create a normal shadow?

  • $\begingroup$ is it from view port only or when you render also. if it's from viewport only, then you can't complain; A) it's still in alpha version B) we never had shadows on viewport shading, so give them time, or there's a setting some where, to increase the sampling or anti-aliasing of the shadows. $\endgroup$ Sep 9, 2018 at 17:37
