    Hello I am fairly new to unity and C# and am making a jump script using a Raycast. I've run into an error in this section and I don't know what it means or how to fix it

    Code (CSharp):
    1. private bool isGrounded()
    2.     {
    3.         RaycastHit raycastHit = Physics.CapsuleCast(capsuleCollider.bounds.center, capsuleCollider.bounds.size, out raycastHit, Vector3.down, 0.1f);
    4.         Debug.Log(raycastHit.collider);
    5.         return raycastHit.collider != null;
    6.     }
    it says "argument 3 may not be passed with the 'out' keyword"
    what did I do wrong?
    The error is under raycastHit in the "out raycastHit" bit

    Thanks in advance

    Physics.CapsuleCast return a bool not a RaycastHit type. The result is true or false.

    Besides the fact that the return type does not match, you actually used a CapsuleCast, not a Raycast. You probably want to use the second overload that actually has a raycasthit argument. However a capsule cast requires two points and a radius which define the capsule and an additional direction vector. The 5th parameter would be the raycasthit out parameter. So it seems you try to use the arguments that Physics.Raycast expects in a CapsuleCast. This does not work. Always check the documentation if you have issues like that.
