Hello there,

I have an issue when using a Point light with cast shadows on. I'm getting these strange repeated lines on certain areas of my composition (see left side of image). It's not just on the rendered movie, but also in After Effects. It goes away when I use a different type of light, or if I turn cast shadows off.

Thanks
Kristian

Increasing the shadow rez in the Comp Panel's Advanced tab and moving the light further from the shadow catching layer will help on most occasions.

If you're still having issues then file a bug.

Hi RoRK,

Thanks for the reply, moved the light further away as you suggested and now it's perfect! You're a legend!

Cheers
Kristian
