15. A depth map bias that's too high, combined with thinly built geometry, can cause light leaks (left). Lowering the bias (right) is one way to fix this problem. If you have light leaking through corners, there are some things you should do to isolate and fix the problem: • Hide all the other lights in your scene, so that you are test-rendering only one light. • If you are using a spotlight, make sure the cone is as narrow as possible to aim it just where it needs to shine. • Reduce the depth map bias.
22. A depth map shadow is softened uniformly from beginning to end (left), whereas a soft raytraced shadow grows softer with distance (right). 23 shows a solution to making shadows that become softer with distance, using only basic depth map shadows: using several lights, each with their own depth map shadows, in a row or an array. 23. Viewed from the top, an array of multiple lights create overlapping soft shadows. 24. In this figure, you can still see the edges of the overlapping lights on the right side, because there are only five lights in the row.
As a creative decision, you may use shadows with complementary colors to make colored objects pop out more visibly, but this is an artistic stylization, not something that always happens as a rule in real life. For example, the combination of yellow light with blue shadows that you often see outdoors would be unrealistic if recreated in an indoor scene that lacked a motivation for the blue fill light. Testing Shadows Even if you avoid using the shadow color parameter as a part of your general lighting, it is a handy tool for highlighting a shadow during test renders.
