3ds Max: Shadow Casting on DustDevil plugin

Posted: January 31, 2007
Hello everybody !

It seems that DustDevil (Blur Studio free plugin) is the perfect plugin to make high density cloud with not much time rendering...

I only have one problem : i don't understand how shadows

behave in this plugin! I made a lot of tries (really) and i can't

change the color of the part of the cloud witch is non illuminated... nor see the effect of self shadow casting...

Although i put 2 lights in top of it (one with map shadow and the other with raytracing) there is still no effect !

If someone have an answer on the use of this great free plugin, it would be great...

Note that DustDevil seems to be the new version of FireStorm plugin.
