Hi all

Just discovered this great COW tute from a while back:

http://forums.creativecow.net/cgi-bin/page_wrapper.cgi?forumid=2&page=http:...

Anyone have any ideas on how I could get these ribbons to cast shadows onto a ground plane / each other? The original layer is a precomp so I'm not sure how to make the main comp create shadows from it

Thanks in advance

Danny

You might want to turn the 3D switch on your precomped layer, then hit the Rasterized button (the little icon that looks like a sun in your timeline) and create a light.

Check out this great tutorial from Bryan Preston that explains the basics of precomposing.

Hope that helped.

Hi Justin

Sorry I should have mentioned I have all that set up. It seems to be a weird thing with ECHO SPACE.

If I have rasterize on it keeps the ribbon I have set up correctly shaped in 3D space and it accepts the lights but no shadows are cast onto the floor [Note all the correct switches are on and I don't have draft 3d on either]. If I turn off rasterise it casts the shadow but of course the 3d path I've made for the ribbon is flatterned into 2d.

I of course want both

Any ideas?

Danny
