    Hello,
    I’ve got a scene with quite big but very simple geometry with a standard “Target Direction Light” in it. I had to crank up the falloff quite a bit to cover all the geometry.

    Problem which comes with that is that the shadow is quite blurry. What isnt that big of a problem but the shadow is quite noisy. Can I improve the quality of the shadow? Or make it a little bit sharper?
    Shadow is PCF Poisson Disk. Sample Range is 1 and 512px Resolution.

    Try to set near and far clipping of the camera as much ckose to the scene geometry and try to increase resolution of shadow map maybe up to 1 or 2k

    It did help a tiny bit, but not that much.

    But if there is currently no way to get sharp shadows in such a scene, so be it. :)

    If you can share an example max file i can try to setup the shadow.
