Shadows are a default setting and in some cases that need to be turned off. Once such case is when you are applying light siding over a structure with an existing dark wall or siding. In this case you will go under the ‘Advanced’ tab of that product and turn the shadow off. You can also set the shadow to any of these given settings depending on dark or light you want the shadow effect – “off, dark, medium average, soft, light, and auto”

You can also watch this short video to show you exactly what the tool enables:

The primary use of this feature  to allow you to give a realistic look and feel to the image by having shadows as it would in real life (eg. shadows cast by the roof onto the top of the siding below the soffit for example, or the shadow of a tree) You can find the shadow feature under the ‘visualize’ tab under ‘Advanced’ just above the products on the left when you select a masked region. Each part of the structure that have been grouped together will have their own shadow settings.

Take a look at the image below. The structure has white siding.  Here is how the siding will look with and without shadows.

 

Look at this image, the siding product applied to the 2 walls is the same but appear to be different colours. The wall on the left appears darker because the shadow setting is on “medium”. Whereas the wall on the right seems lighter as the shadow setting is on “light”.
