Q: What does the number of rays do in the Ray trace Shadows do ?

When using Ray trace shadows on a light there is a setting to choose a number of rays. What do they do and what is it for ?


Answer : The slider shows a value between 1 and 40.

The higher the value the cleaner the edges of shadows will be. It will however impact your render time. So choose a value that has an acceptable quality but also an acceptable render time.
