      Description

      I set the light to SUN + projectors. Same settings as I use in FS 3. But the spotlights I made only work as radial lights and the sun and lights cast no shadows in numerous windlight presets. I also couldn't get Depth of field to show its effects. Is it possible the GPU description for this card got nuked between versions?

      My SL business has become dependent on light and shadows for pictures so Im reverting to FS 3 until next iteration. I DO like the FUI work you guys did. Looking forward to using it.

          Hi Jeela,

          Im afraid its a known issue that Shadows are broken for most Mac users on this version of Firestorm. Its also broken on the latest version of Viewer 3, see https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-28359 for details.
          This however "fix pending" so hopefully shadows will be working again on the next release.
          Depth of field requires shadows to work too, unfortunately.

          As a note, this isn't restricted to any single graphics card. On VWR-28359, most of the reports were submitted by people with NVidia cards, but we've seen it occur with a few ATI cards as well (like the reporter has).

          LL's fix is now committed to Firestorm & will be in the next release. Initially looks to be working.

          QA note: Test if this broke antialiasing, ref: https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-28857 (Antialiasing on osx - regression)
