I am looking to produce an image like this:
Where there are two objects, with one object casting a shadow on the second object. The catch is that I do not want to create this by rendering two objects together in the same scene. I want to create this by combining separate images of each object, rendered separately.
Basically, I want to take this image:
And combine it with this image:
To get this:
Any ideas how to do this? To reiterate, I want to get this result through compositing or other post-processing means, not by rendering the images together. So far, I’ve messed around with the compositor a lot with various render passes, but haven’t figured it out. If you have an idea or method of how to do this, I would love to hear it!
