Real time shadows cast by a directional light in Unity 5 have tiny gaps in them. As if the models had cracks and there was light passing through.
As you can see, the models are very simple and I checked them for actual gaps, missing polygons and reversed normals. I tested close to 20 models from different projects and they all exhibit the same issue when placed into the scene. The lines get rougher and finer depending on the quality settings but never actually disappear.
The bug appears in places where two polygons are perpendicular to each other - hard edges, walls, ledges, etc. They emerge and disappear as the camera angle changes.
This wasn’t an issue in Unity 4 and appeared upon the update of this project to Unity 5.
Any input would be appreciated. I tried to search for a solution but couldn’t find anyone with a similar problem.
