Image Description, by Klas M. Auvinen

I was thinking about stencil shadows and how ugly the sharpness of them is. I first came up with an Idea how to make them soft by rendering multiple shadow volumes. That wasn't that great so I came up with a new idea so I downloaded an example from nVidia that did stencil shadows and modified it so they became soft and nice. The drawback is of course performance. I will workout some of the glitches and increase the performance, and then I will release the full source of this method.
