Shadows (Filter Node)


In: Filters/Effects



A raw, grayscale-only version of the Shape Drop Shadow node. It only takes a black and white, binary shapes as input and returns only the shadow.

Can be useful if you're just after the shadow and do not want to work with a more complete node, for example when building your own material or baked lighting.
