VC Orb Shadow

Postby dwanderer on 03/3/2019, 6:31 pm

Currently trying to figure out how to cast a shadow onto the orb to mimic an eclipse effect. On the orb page, Andrew mentions a possible trick to achieve this:

"Will the spheres be able to cast shadows on each other? For potential eclipse animations?"
Andrew Kramer 6 months ago
"No shadows... but with a few tricks this is doable."

Any ideas on what the tricks may be or something to point me in the right direction?

Thank you!
