hey, I am try to render fur for a characters head and comping it. I am using the background material on the characters head and anthing else that passes over the fur. The problem is that if I turn "recieve shadows" off on the head, then I dont get any shadow from the fur onto the head. If I leave it on I get all sorts of shadows in my fur layer rendering it useless.
Does anyone know how to get a clean fur layer and the shadows it casts on the head?
Or does anyone know an easy way to add a drop shadow or such on the fur layer (but only specific parts of the fur layer, adding a drop shadow to the whole thing doesnt work) so I can better marry it with my character?
