I hope I can post this image.
The issue is that this piece of film should cast an image on the ground. Making the surface a bit transparent (it's 25% now) clearly won't work. so how do I make a nice "projection shadow"?
This is an interesting one.

Thanks in advance, Nik

ps. I don't seem to be able to post an image, can someone please tell me how this is done now. i liked the \image method.
The choose file button asks for my file but then bounced it off when I preview the post.:(

Humm, so I did post the image even though it read no image selected. Anyway the above is the image in question.

Thanks,

Cheers !

If you have "raytrace transparency" on and have a light that casts raytrace shadows it should work. It seems that your film has a thickness of several millimeters, but you need only a flat polygon.

Yes, the film has a thickness to it. I wanted it to be a little chunky. I will try as you suggest. maybe it'll work as is. If not I'll make it a single poly thick. Thanks
