    I'm looking for a brush that can cast dynamic shadows? Does anyone know if there is one?

    I looked at func_brush, but it only appears to cast lightmap shadows?

    (I need to cast a shadow, but the shadow is moving and the source of the shadow needs to be invisible.)

    dynamic shadows aren't really a good idea in TF2...

    but have you checked out env_projectedtexture?

    Thanks a lot.

    Actually, this is for Alien Swarm, not TF2 - but I come here cause I know it's where the Hammer mapping expertise is.
