Shaded View not showing shadows - Mac User





I'm hoping for a definitive answer on this as I have searched through the forum.  I'm using VW2022 SP3 on a Mac Book Pro M1 Pro running Monetray 12.2.


When using the shaded view (formely Open GL) I cannot get shadows to show even though it is checked in Shaded Options.


Can ayone help please?

Is there a global setting or a MacBook setting I can change.

In Shaded, shadows need something to cast onto.  That something has to be a 3D object. 


So if you have drawn a layer plane rectangle you will not see the shadows.  Convert the rectangle to a 3D polygon and your shadows should show up.



Yes it is 3D polygons.  Still no shadows.  Chair on stage etc.  I am seeing ambient inclusion but no shadows.
