uint8 bCastCapsuleDirectShadow: 1

Remarks

Whether to use the capsule representation (when present) from a skeletal mesh's ShadowPhysicsAsset for direct shadowing from lights. This type of shadowing is approximate but handles extremely wide area shadowing well. The softness of the shadow depends on the light's LightSourceAngle / SourceRadius. This flag will force bCastInsetShadow to be enabled.

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.
