Shadows No Longer Work

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I will try to give you as much information as possible, so that maybe someone can figure out what is going on. Thanks.


I was having no problem with shadows, and was able to take some great pics, etc. http://drfranbabcock.wordpress.com/2011/07/30/judy-judy-judy/ 

For the last few weeks, maybe since the last viewer update, I am unable to invoke shadows. I can change all the settings in preferences, and shadows is checked, but I don't see any shadows any more. Any ideas?

I'm not sure. I don't really know anything about this. Really not! :) But this sounds like an alpha thing. In the develop menu (LL viewer) under rendering I think, there is a couple of choices for alpha... I'm not at the Mac ATM, so I don't remember exactly. Try to change these and see if it makes a difference. I'll post better instructions when I have the viewer at hand.
