Adding shadow to text extrude
on Aug 27, 2019 at 3:52:06 pm

Hey everyone!
What I'd like to do is create a shadow on some extruded text.

Here is what it looks like in C4D


And what I'd like to do is add shadows under the letters like this mockup:


So I just want the shadow specifically applied on the right-facing faces of the extrude but no where else.
I was thinking I'd have to bring my animation into AE and just fake the shadow in there cuz I dont THINK I can do this on an extrude. But maybe I can?

Thanks for the help!

if it doesn't have to stay as a parametric extrude, make it editable then use selections to add the material look you want only on those faces
