First I’m new to blender.
I have done a lot of research and experimentation and just need some help.
Shadows are not showing in 3d view or in the render.
Lights seem to work but light passes through one object and onto the objects beneath without casting shadows.
Objects have materials that receive shadows, lights are casting shadows, etc I have eliminated all the advice available, I’ve updated python, and pursued everything suggested to this point.
My blender files that I create, when loaded into blender on another machine do have the correct shadows. So it has to be my video card, OS, local machine,or incompatibility of some sort.
I’ve tried 32bit and 64 bit versions of the OSX versions and the 32bit Windows version running in Parallels on my mac. Same exact results.
Even when I download other blender files that have shadows they don’t show on my machine.
MacBook Pro, 2.4 GHz, Intel Core Duo
NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT 256mb
I can provide links to the blender file. As a new user I can’t post URL’s right now.
Please help if you can.
