P3D v4 MCX - No Volume Shadow? (Solved)

Hello,
I was messing around with one of my models and happened to notice that the Volume Shadow texture option in Model Converter X fails to stay set to true when I export a P3Dv4 MDL. The option does stay set when I export the P3Dv2 and FSX models.

Was this option removed in P3Dv4 or is this just a bug? I have never played around with the Volume Shadow option before this.

Hi,

I haven't heard about this before. I'll try to reproduce it later.

Hi,

This is what I found in the P3D v4 SDK when checking the material settings:

So your observation is right, this is no longer supported in P3D v4 and therefore on export ignored.
