I have a tall object, casting a (sun lamp) shadow onto a plane scaled at 10,000 (dimensions 20K x 20K). But the shadow is being cut off not far behind my object (I can also see this visible limit in OGL). No matter how large I scale the ground object, the shadow is always cut off at the same place. If I view from top, the entire shadow is there! Top view Changing Camera > View > Clipping Start and End has NO effect. So why is the depth being cut off in my OGL and renders? Render view


Yes there is!
Select your camera and in camera tab, you can see clipping section.
Set the End to whatever you need, but not more (more number makes it harder for you computer to render)

    $\begingroup$ @DrStrik9 note there are two limits; one for the render and camera view, and one for the general 3D view. If neither one solves it, is it possible you could upload your .blend? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Mar 6 '16 at 3:55
  • $\begingroup$ The only clip settings (start & end) I know of are in the "N" screen when the camera is selected. Where is the other one? $\endgroup$ – DrStrik9 Mar 6 '16 at 6:29
  • $\begingroup$ @Gandalf3 I found the Display and View Panels in the Manual, but it doesn't say WHERE they are located, or how to access them in Blender. $\endgroup$ – DrStrik9 Mar 6 '16 at 6:44
  • $\begingroup$ @DrStrik9 Does this answer help? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Mar 6 '16 at 7:59
