Thanks in advance. Missing some shadows cast by a spot outside a window in the render. Shows in the viewport but missing in the render. 2.82. Have tried a lot of things. Please help! Thanks! UPDATED: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1b4tkrldl1tufdx/Bosco_Prison_Cell_CHECKING.blend?dl=0
I found the problem with the sun's clipping, this might help you and others who have the same issue.
what I did:
- Check scale
- Check sun's shadow distance.
- Look out for troublesome geometries this might have overscaled objects, micro objects, particles systems, hair, emitters, empty meshes, etcetera. normally you import objects from other softwares, in my case as an example I was using trees from forest pack, entities were there but empty, that caused my issue, I deleted them and it fixed the problem.
I hope this works.
also you had a hidden geometry (the door's window), you have to delete it or desable it on render.
