Troubleshooting shadowmap

    I'm having a small problem of my shadowmap not being rendered in Pixie, but works fine in 3Delight.
    I'm trying to figure out the cause of the problem -- is there a way to visualise the shadowmap in Pixie, so I can see it looks correct?

    I rendered the scene that generates the shadowmap just with the framebuffer to check, and it seems normal, yet the shadow isn't showing up in the beauty pass.

    I'm using Pixie 2.2.3 SVN, with my own exporter.

         Hi Alex,

         You can use "show" command to display the shadow map (it will show you a grayscale image of the shadowmap).

         If you send over an example scene, I would be happy to take a look.

      I don't see anything with the "show" command.

      I tried the following:

      texmake -shadow file.z

      just a 3D grid that I can rotate.

      I tried viewing the Z file, I see a little dot somewhere. That's it.

      Any special switches I need to pass to "show"?
