I’ve seen users ask how to create the Colored Shadows from the image above that is in our documentation. I’ve finally gotten around to making a simple tutorial on our Epic Wiki!
You can find it here: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Colored_Shadows
or you can search for “Colored Shadow” under the Tutorials page on the Wiki.
For Reference you can find more information about Translucent Shadow Color on our documentation page.
Included with this tutorial are links to download a Sample Project setup with multiple maps. There is also a image pack with two various stained glasses and a glass normal to do the tutorial without the sample project.
Maps included in the Sample Project:
- Statically lit map
- Lightmap resolution comparison
- Faked version using 3 Light Functions to get the RGB values and using Blueprints to get the suns position and rotate. (This is a start and probably needs a lot of work to get rotating correctly)
If anyone has any feedback or suggestions feel free to let me know!
