Render a transparant shadow - is this even possible?

Hello there,

I have searched the whole internet for a question, but i couldn’t find the answer.

Is it even possible to render a shadow of an object and save this as a transparant layer? (PNG)
If you know the answer i couldn’t thank you enough!

Please let me know if you could help me…

Much greetings,


Plonie, Blender Render has this function. Just check Shadows Only option for the object(s) on which the shadow is casted. In Cycles you’ll need to play with compositing.
