[BUG] Weird shadows

Post by lawsonfulton » Mon Sep 24, 2007 10:32 pm

I have been playing around with indigo for a few days and i found these odd shadows

I am not sure about this but should those long thin shadows on the green and red walls be there? it just doesn't seem right to me.

Look like the lights are blocking light from the other light :)

totally o/t lawsonfulton, but evil chromey cornell Darth Suzanne would make a great forum icon. Love that "area51 grey" skull-like refelection between the eyes. :D

It's happening due to Indigos behaviour, to kill any ray, that hits a lightsource, I guess? - even if not realistic, it looks nice :D

It's realistic - the area that is in shadow is receiving the light of only ONE light, so it appears darker than the surrounding area which receives one + one further away.

I was thinking that as well. Thought I might post it anyways because I was also thinking this

those shadows dont make sense tho, because the shadow should be wiped out by the light provided by what would normally make the shadow :shock:

why? imagine that you are at the place where the shadow is.. you see only one source of light, now move a bit.. you will see two sources of light.. that means more light... that's why it is correct.

Oh! Wait!
The light get's scattered and refracted through the glass and phosphor (if it's phosphor...) :P - yeah, will still be darker, I know....
but clear lamps shouldn't really give that, I guess?
