I make weird stuff.


  1. Hi !

    Thanks for this tip, it's great and I desperately need it for a project. But I can't find the setting to check.. I am using blender 3.0, but in View Layer properties --> Light, there is no "shadow catcher" box to check unter "ambient occlusion" as you have... Do you have an idead what am I missing ? Is there an add-on I should enable or something like that ?

    Thanks a lot for helping me, have a nice day !
