Like most, i can not afford unity pro right now. I do however plan to buy it in the future before i finish my project. Right now the shadows look really bad, and the lighting is not what it could be in unity pro. I am wondering if there is a way to build a scene with lightning so that i do not have to redo everything when i switch to pro. I also know there is a new unity coming out, and not sure how that will effect this problem. Any help will greatly be appreciated.
ONe way you can get live shadows is to add a directional light. IN my experience this is about as close as you get and it looks pretty nice but it has some cons
- If you have something like a torch it looks a bit funny because you can also see shadows behind you
- If your game is at night it increases the brightness of your whole game (however you can turn the brightness/ intensity down to make it still look like night, especially with a night-time skybox.
EDIT: If you want it to be live shadows you have to attach it to your player or other moving object
