Hi guys!

I'm trying to render out shadows ONLY cast on a wall from text. I don't want to see the wall or the text, just the shadows. I've tried using a compositing tag on the wall, no luck. Help!

Use Compositing tag on the object that u want to hide i.e. the text in your case .. and uncheck seen be camera in the compositing tag.

Here's a sample file :

In that case if you want to hide the wall also u can try rendering a shadow pass from cinema and composite it later in AE or some other compositing program ...

There might be another way to do it but i m not aware of that ..
