Shadows on Transparent materials


#1

Is there a way of allowing shadows to cast onto partially transparent materials eg glass on a building


#2

Is it shadow or reflection?


#3

I want to create shadows on windows without making the glass material opaque


#4

the only way I know is to add shadow shapes to the glass, hide the edges and paint it a darker tint than the rest of the surface…

there are extensions that help capture shadows…

Thanks. I can see how this would work but it would be so time consuming on my particular model


#6

@TIG’s extension makes it a little easier Shadow Projector but i can’t remember if it can target ‘glass’…
