how to get smooth shadow?

The shadow of my icosphere is to hard. By the option “ray shad” of the lamp it doesn’t work. Also options of “area” source don’t get me what I want! Use blender 2.49b
Such like this I want to get my shadow.


You need to increase the “Samples” setting on your lamp to higher than 1 for the “soft size” to have any effect. I would try samples set to 12, and soft-size set to 3.

Increase ‘Samples’ value e.g. 4 and set ‘Soft’ value to 1-3.
Edit: A bit too late :wink:

yeah, it works. thanks
