Vray shadow Matte


I am a Maya and mentalray user moving over to Max and Vray. I am having issues creating a shadow and reflection object to use in a composite, much like you use a use background shader in Maya. I have created a material using the VrayMtlWrapper and have set the setting to what is in the attached screenshot. I used a few tutorials online that said to do the same thing however there is still now shadow in my alpha channel. Any ideas how I can get shadows to show up in a shadow pass?

Note that I just attached a materal to the wrapper and still not results. I also tried Max's built in matte/shadow shader with no results. Here is an updated screenshot with my current settings.

Issue solved. I set it up on a computer that has the full version of vray and did not have any issues. I was using my labtop which has the demo.

Strange, it should work as expected with your settings. You can also set this up per-object in the vray properties dialogue. Rgt click selected object> vray properties from the quad menu. You'll see the matte properties pane on the right of the dialogue. Might be worth a shot.

Had this typed but unposted before your last post.
