Hello.

When you wanna use array of direct light to create a soft shadows, how do you calculate space between them?

I never 'calculate' rather than make a judgement based on the distance of the lights from the subject and how 'soft' I want the effect. Naturally, the further the array fro the subject the wider the spacing can be. Not that you will ever get rid of multiple shadows so it is just a matter of what multiple shadows you find acceptable.
