I have restored the settings and I am still having issues. Im new to After effects, im reading a book following tutorials and ran into an issue its not acknowledging.
I am told to Create a Shadow Catcher and Light under an area of text thats on top of a video later thats been tracked. When I create the Shadow Catcher and Light , the Shadow Catcher appears as a Black square. I believe its suppose to be transparent? or just doing something else. How do I fix this??
change your renderer to classic 3d or ray-trace 3d (only if you are planning to use extrusion and you have the proper GPU for it). the cinema 4d renderer does not support shadow only"
Thank you Roei!
You can just use the Classic 3D renderer, the only caviat is that the text comes off black at first because the light is positioned very far away by default. The best solution is to just copy the position of the text and paste it onto the position of the light, and then move the light on top of the text. Also, if you increase the diffuseness on the light, it make the shadow look really cool
