    I’ve searched and not had a lot of luck and am really struggling and there’s probably a really simple answer…I have a chromakeyed cut-out character and he walks across a virtual set…I want a simple shadow behind him but when I move the anchor point to his feet and dupe the layer and try everything else (3d, simple 3d, distort, pre-comp) the shadow walks off in a different angle to the talent…I want this to be really simple ie no tracking atc as I have a load to do and would really like to simple ‘replace footage’ every time….thanks in advance…Roger
