I have a detailed newbie question for y’all. I can’t seem to find a tutorial and/or prior post that spells it out clearly enough for me.
I have an image background-- a scene of a flat grassy park. I want my ship to fly down out of the sky and land in the park. I can do the ship animation just fine. But what I can’t seem to get is how to have the ship cast a shadow on the grass.
I thought it would involve creating a plane, angling it to roughly match the lay of the park and somehow having it be transparent EXCEPT for the ship’s shadow… but I can’t get it to work.
Could someone layout the step-by-step for me?
And of course, ultimately I would want to replace my background image with a background video… which I understand is a bit trickier?
Thanks in advance!
