I'm using matteshadow production shader with maya2009 (because I'm new to 2009 and it seems shadow passes aren't that reliable. yet) mostly to get the nice AO/FG contribution
However, after following instructions from cgtalk threads and mymentalray video, I can't seem to make the shader work properly, take a look below.
As instructed by the video tutorial; custom alpha is passed through and i've un-checked 'export to shading engine' (what does this do?)
Do you have any idea of how I failed?
Here's the scene if ever you want to look at it:
