Hello, how do you get an imported Cinema 4D object to react to a AE light to cast a shadow?
1. I apply the Track Camera Effect to my footage
2. I select track points, right click the Red Target, and 'Create Shadow Catcher, Camera and Light'
a. Light Options - Cast Shadows On
b. Shadow Catcher - Accepts Lights Only
c. Renderer - Standard(Final)
3. I import a C4D object and set CINEWARE to 'Comp Camera'.
The C4D object tracks correctly to the camera, but the object does not accept the AE light and does not cast a shadow from this
light onto the Shadow Catcher layer. Can't seem to find the answer in any online tutorials. Thanks for you help!
You need to put your lights in the scene, export your Comp to a C4D project, and then set up your shadows in C4D
Ok great thanks for the reply it worked!
