Experimental implementation of contact shadows for Unity.
This is an experimental implementation of contact shadows in Unity.
Contact Shadows is used to fill gaps between objects and shadows that are caused by shadow bias. It uses a screen-space ray tracing technique to determine regions of shadows more precisely than shadow mapping. It also employs a temporal reprojection filter to reduce processing load and artifacts caused by ray tracing.
The Contact Shadows component only renders shadows about a specific pair of a light and a camera. You have to specify which pair of light and camera is going to be rendered with the component.
There are three sliders in the component:
Rejection Depth - This defines depths of each pixels, which controls the thickness of shadows. It's recommended to set this value to the average thickness of the objects in the view.
Sample Count - The number of samples used per ray.
Temporal Filter - This controls the strength of the temporal reprojection filter. You can get smoother results by increasing this value, but it also introduces gaps between objects and shadows while moving the camera. It's recommended to keep the value low for fast-moving cameras. The filter is to be disabled when the value is set to zero.
