I think the shadow is too sharp, how can I make it more realistic

Hi, I think the shadow is too long and sharp. How can I make it more realistic?

well… hello there. nice desert scene.

the length of the shadow looks appropriate for the sun angle you have there.

you can make the shadow more soft using the source angle of the directional light. results vary. depends if you use virtual shadow maps or raytraced shadows.

shadow mapped shadows do not support soft shadows.

thank you! can I use both virtual and ray traced shadow?

not sure if vsm mixes well with raytraced shadows. i don’t use vsm. and ofc you can’t have both on a single lamp.

Thank you alot! I dont see any difference when both are on but I see the shadow looks sharper when the virtual shadow map is on
