Blender noob here.
I’m trying to get this shadow catcher to work: http://blender.stackexchange.com/questions/19765/cycles-shadeless-shadow-catcher-material-for-rendering-onto-footage.
The only difference with the situation there, is that I don’t want any background: I just want the object (the cube) + its shadow, and apart from that only transparency. I want to add the background later, manually.
I can follow just fine, until the last step where the answer says
you now have a shadow to multiply over your backdrop and layer 1 to composite into backdrop
Can someone help me to achieve what I want (object + shadow only)
Here’s where I’m at so far:
which gives this render result:
which I would like without the white (where the plane was).
