Why is it when the only thing I change from the default values is the shadow amount and save a png, the shadows look the same? Do I need to changes something else?
thank you

Hi, the Shadow amount parameter controls how much light is bounced off the shadow catcher onto other objects in proximity, increasing the value will force the shadowcatcher object to bounce less light, thus making shadows look darker.

A small example here is where the shadow catcher has a 3.0 amount against one with 0.1, the light source is directly above: https://corona-renderer.com/comparer/pEJ4iE
