Composition blocking 3D light shadows
on Oct 23, 2017 at 1:05:56 pm

Hi,

I have a PSD image of a cut out person. I'd like the shadow to follow the shape of the person.

The PSD has been composited and added to the main composition with the 3D lights...etc.

The shadow cast by this person is blocked and only shows once it is passed the square of the composition it is contained in.

Basically, the main comp has people, but they have a big square (the size of their comps) cut out of their shadows.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you in advance!

make sure your psd is in RGB MODE. MODE-RGB//Re import the compotision and make it editable layers...I think this may help, but i cannt really imagine what you are describing
