    Hi everyone, I am trying to put a 3d model of a golf ball being hit around a golf coarse (which are 2d video footage looked off) The 3d model of the ball is no problem I am using a flat plane also in Invigorator to chatch the 3d shodow,
    however before I switch the surface of the flat plane to the shadow catcher i see the shadow but when I change to the surface catcher surface
    I loose it

    I am using AF CS3 and Invigorator 4.3.2 on a Macpro 8core

    Any help would be very appreciated as I am starting to go a little crazy

    Hi Rich.

    This is likely a bug.

    Try rotating your floor 180 degrees along the X axis.
    This will flip the floor to point in a direction that the Shadow Catcher can handle.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    Hi Matt

    Thank you so much, Flipping the plane on the x axis 180 degrees has produced the shadow in shadow catcher mode
