View Full Version : Transparent BG, Include Shadows

05 May 2009, 09:54 PM
I'm looking to render a model into a live action shot. I've been able to recreat the lighting affecting the object and render it with a transparent background. The only thing I can't get to show on my render are the shadows. The shadows only render on the model and not in any transparent area. Has anyone found a solution to this problem?

Have a read about the "useBackground" shader.

If you want something that works a bit better in mentalray, then you should have a look at the "mip_matteshadows" shader.
