I have a “plane as image” for the background pic. I thought I could then add a plane, to represent the “ground”, upon which I could cast a shadow of the falling text object. However, the entire background image needs to be visible, and the plane needs to intersect at a position that cuts off the lower portion of the background image.
Is there a way in which to cast a shadow on a plane, without the plane being visible? Or, is there another process with which I could reflect a shadow of this falling text as it nears the “ground”?
Here’s a link to the blend file, and I sincerely appreciate the time someone might take to help resolve this. I feel like I’m about ready for a final render, if this issue can be solved: https://jumpshare.com/b/LcoA2KGVEZU0QXP4sBOz
