Hello,

I'm trying to get this yellow shape to sit on the light blue platform shape… and actually, it is penetrating into that light blue shape a bit, but still appears to be floating.
The attached pic is rendered with GI and AO on. I've tried a bunch of things, but can't get it to look right.
Using R14.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
K

Looks like a soft shadow problem. There are a number of ways to address it:

1. Use higher resolution shadow maps;
2. Adjust the shadow bias setting;
3. Use area shadows instead of soft shadows (recommended);
4. Use luminous objects instead of lights (for GI rendering only).

Thanks, Adam!

That was it! Weird, because I was zoomed in WAY tight, and it looked like there was always a buffer zone of just "nothing happening" there. Ha! Thanks again for answering my bone-head question.
:)
