    Problem with lighting and speedtree object

    I have such problem:



    I put a DominantDirectionalLight and i have this problem with my speedtree models. From one side there are a lot of leaves and in another there is nothing.

    How do i need to solve this problem ?

    Thanks

    One of the Performance boosts of Speedtrees is that they can use cards for leaves. To make sure the cards always appear correctly on the screen, they rotate to face the camera. Because cards have no thickness, they dissapear when the light hits them from the side.

    The only ways I know of to fix this are to either:
    A: Don't stand in that spot
    B: Don't use 2d cards for leaves (The alternatives are much more expensive though)

      Thanks for the answer. But i didn't understand how to disable 2d cards. Can you help ?

        Try making your material two sided.

          No, this won't help.

          As Wyldhunt said, use 3d meshes instead of 2d cards in the speedtree modeler. Read the speedtree modeler manual if you don't know how.

          Other option is to use precomputed shadows.

                Huh? Have the rotating shadows with leaf cards been fixed? :O
