Sun not casting shadows

So I want to use the sun to cast shadows on my object and have shadows turned on for the sun. However, as shown in the image, repositioning the sun has no effect on the shadow of the car. How do I configure the shadows to be affected by the sun?

Hi there,

The sun works, but you should position its direction I think.

As the manual says: β€œA sun light provides light of constant intensity emitted in a single direction from infinitely far away.”
https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/render/lights/light_object.html

So, due to this trait, you have to position it, it won’t be as delicate as a point light. Click-hold the yellow ball under the sun and simply rotate it, or you may use the location panel tonset rotation. Then, the shadows should all change based on that. :blush:

Happy blending!
