- | **This setting requires a rebake to take effect if selected post bake.** | + | In general soft normals (Adjusted) results in a better distribution of rays than points placed by hand as they are a mathematically "perfect" angular distribution for the geometry, but for some meshes you may get better results using points placed by hand (unadjusted) as it greatly depends on the topology of the cage as to how the projection will align. |

+ | Essentially 'Adjusted' is a way of using the cage to indicate ray distance but not distribution of rays whereas with unadjusted we allow the cage to dictate ray distance and distribution simultaneously. | ||

**Push:** The amount you wish to inflate the projection cage. The projection cage should in most instances completely enclose the High Poly mesh in order to render correctly. | **Push:** The amount you wish to inflate the projection cage.
