I'm having trouble creating a realistic perspective on shadows being cast by three separate objects.
In photoshop it's very easy to do this by using the perspective tool but i can't find something similar in after effects CS4.
I need the shadows to have a perspective like the attached image. At points the 3 objects cross over each other so i don't think it'll work well if i skirt round the problem by creating three separate shadows.
Duplicate your pre-composed combined pillars, then use a Corner Pin effect to distort them, effects like Fill to tint them. if you're feeling patient and adventurous, of course AE's 3D layers and lights would offer a "correct" solution as well.
