Overlapping Shadows


Hey Guys,
I am working in NUKE 10 and I am not very good with it yet. I have run into a problem where I am getting bad shadow blending when the CG shadow overlaps with the live action.

I’ve found some information to try using a keyer but that gives me really ugly edges.

Can someone please help me with an approach that will help me to blend the shadows? Again I am very new to nuke so I would really appreciate a screenshot or a simple file that I may study. Sorry for asking too much.


Are you setting the blend mode to multiply in the merge node? Try that and remove the key and see if that gives you the result you’re after.
