How do I remove an object's shadow ? I do not have a node setup for either object as I would not know where to start with tackling this issue. Also, the small object will be animated to move, hence its a moving shadow issue and not static one. Thanks in advance. d
There is a setting to disable shadows per material.
But it seems to have more disadvantages compared to Cycles. But it should work in your case.
You can also use compositor to remove shadows and more.
The key things here:
- Object render visibility is an object setting.
- Collection visibility is a view layer setting.
- Transparent is a scene setting
- Two scenes in one file are simply two blend files being in one, which can have links between.
Here is the file where I also wanted to achieve saving the background for one of the two shots. If you do not need it you can skip the scene part and use only view layers.
I am not a Blender professional and I am still a beginner as I use it to render some sketches in order to plan paintings. Don't know if I can help you but I guess that you are trying to recreate the motion of the moon around the Earth. In this sense, the render is cute accurate, the light (sun) in your scene is behind the moon, you have a sun eclipse there.
-You could put a medium but large light on the opposite part of the planet so it can ligth the moon but keep the earth visible as well. this is more realistic because the dark part of the moon is not visible from Earth, in your scene the dark part of the moon faces the Earth
-You can run the moon as a low emission object, it wont generate a shadow and might solve the problem if you only want to describe movement, you migth want to use a curve form as ligth if you some sahdow is still showing.
