Thread: Shadows on the ground without the ground ?

    Shadows on the ground without the ground ?

    I don't know if it's clear in the title, but how can you get a render with nice shadows but no background ?

    Just set the alpha channel to "shadow opacity" (Surface editor, advanced tab)

    I turned on shadow density, but it's not working, i export a .psd , but the alpha channel only includes the character (it's just a character on a plane, i would like to get his shadows but not the plane).

    any idea ? i forgot something ?

    you have to turn on shadow density for the object the shadow falls upon(your stand-in ground plane). It also helps to make the plane object black (or at least dark)
