Can Widget Components cast shadow from Point- and Spotlights ?


i noticed that Widget components can recieve light and shadows from evey light type but can only cast shadows from Directional Lights and not from Point and Spot light.

Can this be changed ? Or is this a limitation at the moment ?


Hi PrHangs,

The widget component is actually still listed as experimental. I’m not sure if this behavior is expected so I logged a bug report for it here: Unreal Engine Issues and Bug Tracker (UE-37544)

You can track the report’s status as the issue is reviewed by our development staff.
