Does Anyone Know. . .
« on: February 13, 2013, 05:36:26 PM »
Why you simply can't get Poser to render shadows sometimes even though you have "Render Shadows" clicked? Doesn't happen often, but it drives me crazy when it does. I drop everything to the floor and use the same lights for almost everything, but once in awhile, I simply can't get shadows to render. I use Poser 9. Thanks for any help you can give for this irritating problem.

Interesting I can't say that I have ran across this before, will have to investigate as I use Poser 9 too.

Have had that happen many times in other software packages other than Poser and in almost all cases it was simply overtaxing my graphics card. Save the scene, then clear out Poser cache and restart.


This is why I have different machines for rendering and animations...that's all they do, nothing else is installed on them.

You are most welcome!


For the most part, computers and software packages are like a woman. Know the right buttons to push, and the areas of concern to her and she'll let you live.

If you are rendering in Poser 9 select the ground, go to material room and tick at the bottom "render shadows" or something. I'm not at my PC at the moment but that will fix it in P9.


If you don't want to repeat that each time load an empty scene apply that setting and save that as preference so that each time you fire up P9 this setting will apply.

Thanks, Amaranth. Now how in the world did you figure out how to do that in the first place? You people amaze me.

I ran into the same problem and I found no answers so I started looking and by trail and error I found the solution :)

I honestly hadn't thought of that one the last time it happened due to having those settings set to load by default. It only seems to happen if I'm doing a lot of rendering over a period of time.
Maybe it's a glitch in the software or something, but in my case simply clearing the Poser cache and restarting the scene worked.


Most of the answers to software issues come from the ones reported; if no one reports them then there's no information about them. That's why I say "Question everything!"
