Is there anyway to render just the shadows out for an animation? It's easy to do in Maya but I have no clue how to do it in lightwave. Thanks in advance!

Save Buffer in Image Filter, select "Shadow" Buffer,
there are a few ways to save a specific buffer,
depends of image format.

If you render it out with PSD export in that location you have option to seperate all that out, spec, bump, SHADOW, diffuse...etc etc. as long as you have Photoshop. Puts them in nice layers for you.

Comes in really handy.
