No occlusion for projector in Gazebo 2

I'm currently working with gazebo 2 (to work with ROS Indigo), and my current problem is with the projector. I use the standard PR2 Model and only changed the projected image (a simple cross). The major problem with the projector is the missing occlusion. It does not care if the light already hit an object, it just keeps going and illuminates objects in the shadow. defaultgzclientcamera(0)-2015-10-23T210303.596012.jpg

I had the same problem.. How did you solve the problem?

I don't want the projected image to pass through objects. It just keeps going to horizon, but does not project the image on already textured objects.

The projector in gazebo7 does project onto textured objects. Can you file an issue for the projector pattern passing through objects?

The projected pattern is just images(stereo_projection_pattern_high_res_red.png...) from gazebo. My projector worked in gazebo 2. I will try to do that in gazebo 7.
