Direction light - static or stationary?


I do ArchViz. It hasn’t planned any movement of objects and etc.
There is a sense to leave the directional light and skylight stationary? Is it influence somehow?

Best regards,

Hi Anna,

With Directional Lights the Stationary Light will use a dynamic shadow for anything within it’s set distance (Details Panel > Cascaded Shadow Distance StationaryLight) so that it blends between the baked shadows for further objects and has dynamic shadows for closer objects. By default the Stationary Directional Lights dynamic shadow distance is set to 0 so you’ll only see static lighting. If you’re not planning on adjusting this to have any blendable distance then it’s probably best to go ahead and switch it to Static. I would do the same for the Skylight and set that to Static as well.
