Is it possible for a mesh to receive and create shadows ?


Recommended Posts


I am trying to generate shadows for a 3D scene with the ShadowGenerator of Babylon. My problem is the following : a mesh can't create shadows and receiving shadows at the same time.

Here is a playground where this is illustrated : http://playground.babylonjs.com/#1R4XE8#1

Let's focus on lines 47 & 48 :

torus.receiveShadows = true;

If the first one is commented  the torus doesn't receive shadow and when it pass into the cube shadow, it is still highlight.

If the second one is commented the torus doesn't create shadow but when it pass into the cube shadow, it act well.

Finally if the both are uncommented the torus is constantly shadowed (like it is occluding by itself...)

Thanks for any help !
