I was wondering if there is a way in Autodesk 3ds Max to render the shadows on a backdrop without rendering the object making them.
Basically the situation i've got is I have an array of lights, text, and a background box shape. The lights on the text are making shadows on the box. Is there away for me to capture the movement of just the shadows on the box without the text? I tried hiding the text but then obviously there were no shadows.
