Soft Lighting

    Soft Lighting is a powerful technique used to create super soft shadows. Soft Light is an Object that can be found in the Camera & Lights category within the Props menu.

 

Note: You must have High Quality enabled in the Settings in order to view the shadows.

 

Note: Setting Shadow Quality to Max may significantly slow down your computer. It is recommended to use a lower quality while you work, and raise the quality only during Export.

Here is an example showing Designer Characters being lit by 2 Soft Lights.
