So I’ve been trying to get ground shadows to work in AR and I thought a mesh using a ShadowOnlyMaterial would be the way to do it but so far I cannot see any shadows.
Here’s a playground example: https://playground.babylonjs.com/#KDWCZY#246
Is there another material I could use to recieve shadows only? Or is this an issue with the shadowgenerator settings?
Hi! and welcome to the forum.
This demo does a lot - anchors, hit-testing and plane detection (the last one being a non-standard feature that requires the incubation flag). Maybe first try hit-test only, with a simple ground underneath the object. Give the ground a shadow-only material, and make sure your light and shadow generator definition fit your scenario (i.e. - positioned correctly and in the right direction).
Hello just checking in, are you still having issues? @snorulf
Hello @carolhmj ,
Yes, still having this issue. I did not have much time to test any other approach.
But I don’t really see why it should not work in the playground example I edited using a ShadowOnlyMaterial (ln 136-137). It works as expected with a standard material.
As Raanan explained, it’s harder to accurately pinpoint issues when there is too much going on
