[Sidefx-houdini-list] where are the default shadow shaders?

The simple way is to add "shop_shadowpath" property to a light and apply own
shader this way. Houdini assigns shader to default lights via light
wranglers scripts (check soho folder in $HFS). Default light uses
v_rayshadow shader I suppose.

You could install modified version of that shader in a session, replacing
default shader, but this way you won't have an access to custom parameters
on a shader (without modifying both light params and soho script or creating
new light definition type) .

hope this helps,
