Tutorial – Kirstens Viewer Shadows


Even though I am still quite sick and I sound very tired and sleepy in the video, I still decided to go ahead and do it since a lot of you have been waiting for it. Turning on shadows in Kirstens Viewer is actually very simple and straightforward so I hope I don’t disappoint you guys.

For those wondering what kind of computer I am running, you can view all of my system specifications in detail on my system specs page.

Now here’s the video or you can view it on my youtube page:

Here are the steps to enable shadows in Kirstens Viewer for those of you that have difficulty hearing or viewing the video:

  1. In the “Me” menu select preferences and go to the graphics tab
  2. On the left side of the graphics tab select Lighting and Shadows & Ambient Occlusion
  3. Click on the drop down menu below Shadows and select Sun/Moon + Projectors
  4. Play with the shadow quality slider on the right hand side until you get good quality shadows at the lowest setting possible so that you do not crash
  5. Choose a windlight setting that will be ideal for shadows
  6. Take a high res snapshot! 🙂
