Got an INVIG question I think you'll simply tell me INVIG say's no.
I have some Blue screen footage I've attached to a plane primitive as a material. It has a keyed transparency which all works fine cutting out the subject from the blue screen. However I want it to cast a shadow. Unfortunately it seems INVIG doesn't pay attention to the material transparency when shadows are cast so that rather than just the keyed subject casting a shadow the whole plane casts a shadow.
Is there any way around this? I really don't want to use the keyed subject outside INVIG as an AE layer as I'll have to use matts for foreground and background elements which will be a pain.
Also... what's happening with INVIG 5? Is there one in the works? It's been a while and I'm suspecting you guys are losing interest... of course this must my paranoia only? INVIG is a great app but could do with some upgrading esp with 3d Models.
The only workaround is to go OUTSIDE of Invig... I posted this a few weeks ago to Matt and he was surprised to see that layer maps did NOT cast shadows. I think they're working on Invig 5 soon... You may want to e-mail Zax or Matt (email@example.com) and ask them to add this feature to Invig 5.
