Syntax

uint32 bCastShadowsFromCinematicObjectsOnly: 1

Remarks

Whether the light should only cast shadows from components marked as bCastCinematicShadows. This is useful for setting up cinematic Movable spotlights aimed at characters and avoiding the shadow depth rendering costs of the background. Note: this only works with dynamic shadow maps, not with static shadowing or Ray Traced Distance Field shadows.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
