I use Blender 2.63 on a iMac (Intel 64Bit).
I have a simple plane and placed a simple cube on it. I added a sun lamp. Under the shadow settings for the lamp I changed shadow color to grey.
If I render now the cube causes a grey shadow on the plane as expected. So far no problem.
Then inside the material settings for the plane under section ‘Shadow’ I enabled ‘Shadows only’.
If I render again the shadow is black not grey anymore :-(.
How can I change the color of the shadow if I enable ‘Shadows only’ for the plane?
Background is I want to use compositor to combine a real photo with objects created inside Blender. The shadows in the real photo are grey not black. So I want to make my objects cast also grey shadows. But of course the plane itself should be invisible, therefore I enabled ‘Shadows only’.
But unfortunately this causes the shadow to turn to black, not grey.
Ist it a bug?
Thanks for any help!
