Does anyone know if Blender suport a “recieve only” shadows material or something that allow the shadows to be visible on a plane. The trouble is that the plan must not appear in render, but the alpha concerning to shadows must be there.
In Max for example the problem could be resolved with a type of “recieve shadows only mat”
Thanks in advance,
That’s what the OnlyShadow button in F5, Shaders panel does.
Not quite im afraid.
The only shadow button makes a invisible material that when aplied on a object makes it invisible but with the ability of cast his shadow over another surfaces.
What Im asking for is a Material with the ability of recieving shadows from another objects but invisible in render.
With another words the alpha from shadows casted over a plane must be therere, visible, but the plane itself must not be shown at render.
In Max it was called a shadow/matte material. With that I can have a mesh over a plane witch is recieving the mesh shadows but is not considered at the render it self. Kinda good for those scenes made with AmbOcc with white background.
I love how people are told the answer, and still refuse to believe it.
No it doesn’t, I’m afraid. It does exactly what you want, exactly what rawpigeon told you. You don’t believe him. Here. Believe now?
It’s OnlyShad. Don’t argue. Just try it.
You’re welcome (in advance!)
But, But, But… :))
I Got it!!
It was not a matter of believe or not dude. I was just looking to the wrong button. The “OnlyCast” Button also on F5.
Now Im again in the path of light… lol
Thanks a lot
Glad you got it to work Guzman
I think the OnlyCast button is new, I’ve not used that before. I’m still trying to find the Pixar Quality button…
