Increasing the scale of a skeletal mesh actor with Capsule Shadows set to true causes the shadow to appear chunky and broken.

Regression (No), feature was not present in 4.10.4.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Download, unzip, open attached file
  2. View shadows of skeletal mesh actors in level viewport


The 2.0 scaled skeletal mesh's shadow appears broken in comparison to the 1.0 or .5 scaled meshes.


Shadow appears as a larger version of the 1.0 scale without breaks in the shadow.
