Anyone know why I am getting shadows with jaggered edges.

Graphics card ATI HD5870. Lumion image quality and resolution set to max.

These edges are artifacts of the shadow map. You can increase the render quality but it results in longer rendering times. When you render a movie they should disappear (filtered out to be exact). Another solution is to increase shadow resolution by decreasing the shadow range.

Since this is a screenshot that has AA it should already be filtered out. AA should also antialias shadow and we always filter the shadows on final render. What's the material type you used? We will check if this is a bug.

I found an error in the standard material. In this case AA is not enough to remove jaggies so it needs filtering and filtering should be enabled in final render.

Seems to be the same with any material.

This is a new graphics card, I don't remember seeing this on my old Nvidea

Ok, fixed it for the upcoming release. Should be online later today. It's release candidate 1 of service pack 1.
