    Ray tracing engine: Create Shadow Catcher

    Frank_ShiftHorizon Level 1

      Hello everybody!

       

      I am currently experimenting with the new 3D Raytracing engine in AE. Its pretty sweet so far, although i miss the option of masking out parts of a scene (if anybody has a tip on this, let me know)

       

      However, I am also struggling with using a shadow catcher. In the old classic 3D engine, you could make a solid a shadow catcher layer with some tricks. This does not work in the raytracing engine because you need the layer styles for this.

       

      I have heared that there is a 'create shadow catcher layer' in the new 3D Camera Tracker, but i need it outside of the 3D Camera Tracker. Is there such an option, or a way to make it myself?
