Questoin for multipass shadow for After Effects.

I tracked a aerial shot with syntheyes worked great. Brought into cinema added some 3d elements and shadows. I have a plane for my floor so you can see the shadows. I applied my background to the plane along with a compositing tag "not seen by camera" and "compositing bg" on.

I can't seem to make it work in AE? I can say just render out the whole image in Cinema with the backdrop and everything looks fine but then I can't isolate things in AE.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I searched the forums and I think I did everything that was suggested. Also I can do this in photoshop with no problems. In photoshop I just cut out my elements with their alpha place them on my photo bg and add shadow pass on top with multiply blend.

So basically I can get my stuff in AE and everything tracks perfect looks great but I have no shadows?
