Self Shadow Working:

  • Standalone Game
  • In Editor

Self Shadow Broken:

  • PIE
  • Simulate
Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open Content Examples
  2. Open ParallaxOcclusionMapping level
  3. Move to the Shadows example
  4. Simulate or PIE at this example
    RESULT: Self shadow example (On the left) no longer has shadows like you see while in the editor.
