    Casting shadows through a metal grate

    Simple question for anyone experiences in UE3. How do I get the this grate fence to cast shadows on the ground? I dont seem to get any light going through the grate at all...

    Yea, I had a problem with that fence as well as some other meshes with grates.

    I just used a spot light with a light function to mimic the shadows. It was tricky but it worked for me.

      can you explain how I would do that?

        Light does not shine through grates/fences like that because the mesh is actually completely solid - the parts you can see through are governed by transparent textures which lighting does not account for.

        A way around it is discussed in this thread: http://utforums.epicgames.com/showthread.php?t=593103
