Can some one give me a generic workflow for working with the shadow element in render elements.
I am tryinf to render out an image, and would like to have a seperate alpha, shadow, and image.

i added the alpha and shadow elements, in the render elements tab, but keep getting a solid black image for the shadow.

Any suggestions?

Just see it the comopsiting way.

Shadows on a black background always give a solid black image. There is no doubt, and nothing to worry about, as long as you render an 32bit image (RGBA) and hand it over to the comp guy, who knows what to do. ;-)

Hope it helps.
