Directional Shadow 1

This example demonstrates directional light shadows and their helper. The cubes within the view frustum of the shadow camera have complete shadows, the cubes at the edge of the view frustum of the camera have partial shadows, while the cubes outside the view frustum of the camera will not cast shadows.
