Im trying to remove the objects visibility but keep the shadows that fall on the object when rendering with mental ray but it aint working for me.
Searching the net, i found that it should work with primary visibility turned off in render stats but i have tried a million settings and it aint working.
Any help would be appreciated. Below you can find the mb file and some render testings.
