Is there a shadow catcher in VRay?

Recommended Posts

Yeah! Totally worked! It scared me at first it doesn't drop rendering the catcher object until after the first pass. Does just what I want. Will save time replacing entire walls in photos. Been doing tons of photo revisions. Thanks, not sure I would have ever sussed that one out myself.

I was playing around with this a few months back.... one thing that tripped me up was the direction of the surface I made as a "studio backdrop" was facing the wrong way.  When I changed it's direction it was perfect.

I would like to add that post processing is helped tremendously by assigning a unique material ID to each material.  Then output that channel separately.   I do this all the time to tweak materials in PS and add shadows and such.
