Has anyone successfully had Compositor running with shadows in ALS? I found the fgfs-compositor.exe binary and have tried running it, with two properties ("/sim/rendering/als/shadows/enabled=true" and "/sim/rendering/als/shadows/sun-atlas-size=2048") specified in FGRun but not seeing much difference, and definitely no shadows. To use the ALS pipeline, I think you have to specify something in the command line, but I'm not sure you can do that with FGRun...
Have tried to follow
the notes here
but not getting anywhere - guidance would be appreciated!

Yeah, I have been trying to figure out how to do that - I use FGRun to launch, and though you can see the command line it generates, you can't edit it. I've tried creating a command line entry by copying the one from FGRun and sorting out the paths and stuff, but I can't get it to find any aircraft.

Pretty impressed with The Compositor so far - shadows are great (as Stuart demonstrates above) and this is a point light on the airframe (the red lines are the debug visualisation of the light volume).
One thing to note - OSGText seems to be gone from the Compositor-enabled .exe, or at least does not appear when the Compositor is running. I don't think too many aircraft use it, but the EF2000 cockpit is super heavy on OSGText and it's always been a bit of a thorn in my side, hence the move to Canvas for its scheduled replacement, the Typhoon Tranche 3.
Have been talking to Alex, who's been talking to Richard, about doing text with Canvas. I'm gonna wade in. Expect me to be... volatile... for a few days
OK...one more time *slowly* for old people - Just installed 2020.1.1 and I'd like to play with this compositor deal as well. What do I put where in the plain old launcher to enable it and thanks in advance!
