Shadowplanes..?


(Sabre) #1

Is here any way to create a shadow plane in blender?

A shadoplane is a plane where the cast shadow is rendered but not the plane itself.

This is supported in 3dsm and i need something similar in blender…

Could the Only Shadow button in the materials window help?

You can make the material on you shadow plane basically invisible by using the “ENV” button in the material window. However, if the plane is in front of another object, it will cut through it, (i.e. the object behind the plane will show the background).

I am sure there is a better method out there. Just cause I am a Forum Monkey, doesn’t mean I know everything. :wink: Someone else can probably give you a better explanation/solution.
