Thomas Wrote:There is never any redrawing of any geometry or anything like that. All I do is to render the scene to shadow map (from the perspective of the light) using a single "forward rendering" pa...

OH OH OH! I get what you're saying. In your step 2, you're rendering the light geometry, not shadow-specific geometry Quote:"2. Render the shadow casting light (using light geometry: sphere, cone, e...
