LScript - Custom_Shadow


LScript (Layout) adds a shadow visual aid to Layout. It is purely a visual cue for objects positioned or sitting on the ground plane.

There are three types available
  • Simple - Basic distance from ground plane
  • Simple (Projected) - Projected style shadow (experimental)
  • Object (Projected) - Projected shadow of object (experimental)
Changes
  • Error found by erikalst has now been fixed
  • Shadow will nolonger disappear if object drops below ground plane

Compatible with Newtek LightWave 9.6 and above.
