Drop Shadows in FCPX

Hello,

I've been messing around with the new 3d titles in FCPX and Motion 5. So far things are working better than expected, but if I have my text angled in the "y" axis I can't seem to get a realistic drop shadow. I've attached a picture giving an example of what I'm seeing. (I'd like the shadow to be on the ground in front of the text as if the text was sitting on the ground and was being backlit by the sun in the upper right corner). It seems to me like an easy fix would be to be able to rotate the drop shadow. Is there any way to do this, or is there another work around? Any ideas are greatly appreciated, thanks!

There's a free drop shadow plug in that might have more control.

You could do this in Motion and render out the result... Mark Spencer has a great little tutorial here:
