Drop shadow render pass

Recommended Posts

its a very simple question. ofcourse i have gone through odforum and google for redundancy. 

Question is , how do i get an object and its shadow rendered out.  eg:- if i have a box on a ground i want to render out box and all its elements including its shadow but excluding the ground. so that i can save time on rendering background and that way i can export to Photoshop and play around with different background. i know the long method i want something like vray in maya, vray has a shadow catcher. below is the only tutorial i found on internet. this method is ridiculous, and its pretty old . i am hoping there is a simple method ,as the update of Houdini in each year is awesome

Hey,

you can just use a shadow matte material for your ground. And get straight in your beauty pass, your scene and the shadows in the alpha channel only.
