CG Shadows

Here is a sample of what’s coming up on Video Copilot. The idea is to make your CG objects cast shadows in the real world. The first image shows a Text Layer in AE casting a shadow on the street using a transparent solid layer. The second example is a 3D object with a matte/shadow material on a floor plane. This material allows only the shadow to render on the object so you are able composite in a live action scene.
