Showcatcher not catching?????
by rich huxley on Sep 24, 2008 at 7:44:50 am

Hi everyone, I am trying to put a 3d model of a golf ball being hit around a golf coarse (which are 2d video footage looked off) The 3d model of the ball is no problem I am using a flat plane also in Invigorator to chatch the 3d shodow,
however before I switch the surface of the flat plane to the shadow catcher i see the shadow but when I change to the surface catcher surface
I loose it

I am using AF CS3 and Invigorator 4.3.2 on a Macpro 8core

Any help would be very appreciated as I am starting to go a little crazy

thanks

rich

Hi Rich.

This is likely a bug.

Try rotating your floor 180 degrees along the X axis.
This will flip the floor to point in a direction that the Shadow Catcher can handle.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Hi Matt

Thank you so much, Flipping the plane on the x axis 180 degrees has produced the shadow in shadow catcher mode

cheers
