In the picture you see how the shadow bends up the wall.....this is what I want
but I have to render out the wall to get it. If I make the wall in visible the shadow falls flat.

I have the wall on the background layer and buddy in another layer.
Is there a way to get that bending shadow without having to render out the background.
...maybe a trick some how that I don't know.

I'm editing in Vegas where I already have a floor/wall setup for buddy to stand in.



Thanks

You need to render out the background as the shadows belong to the layer they are cast upon, not the layer which casts them.

If you put your chap on a separate layer and set the background layer to "separate shadows" then you should get the layers you require without the need for any messy greenscening.

Thank you MrDrWho13.

... and YES! yet another cornucopia of possibilities from the Great Muvizu Team.

Only problem: no price tag attached ?? then where can I pay for such an astonishing set of styles and features ??

( Btw.- for other newbies like me - How to use it : Edit the character and go to the decals tab. Choose the custom texture and go down to costumes.
Remember that the costumes are body shape specific, so if you are using the "Fat Man" body shape then only the Fat Man costumes will work properly. (Quote from ukBerty))
