Cast Shadows Disabled?
on Jan 14, 2013 at 2:12:20 am


Attached is a screen shot of a very simple scene. Couple objects / lights, etc.

One of my objects (The selected one in the attached image wont allow me to turn on "Cast Shadows", (it's disabled). Anyone know why this is?

I know since it is just a simple box, that i can just re-create it, but i would really like to know the reason for it first. I mean, what if this happens again on a much more complex mesh?

I've tried, importing just that object into a new scene file and get the same results. I can create any brand new object and the "cast shadow" function is enabled. Anyone know of something off hand that maybe i should check out that would disable this?

Using Maya 2013 x64 (with MR) on Win7 64.
