I have been working on a small short film that has a small section of VFX work, However; when I was rendering a test result to see if everything was working the way it needed to, the render did not seem to go as planned. As seen below, the Robot has no casting shadow, instead, it has a plane with a half opacity it seems, anyone that have done VFX before in blender would know that blender creates a plane for you and makes it a shadow catcher. idk whats going on.enter image description here if anyone could help that would be great :)

Thanks, -Adam

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry but this still doesn't answer my question... The layout on that post is different and not using Motion Tracking. $\endgroup$ Jun 9, 2018 at 5:39

    $\begingroup$ The principle is the same. You set the plane as shadow catcher and overlay the 3d scene over the background image using alpha over. $\endgroup$
