In This Cinema 4D R18 tutorial video, learn about a new 3D compositing feature, the new Shadow Catcher material. With the new Shadow Catcher material in Cinema 4D R18, you can use a ground plane or surface in order to catch shadows and reflections, and appear as a transparent surface when you render the final project with an alpha channel. By using the new C4D R18 shadow catcher, you can quickly and easily catch shadows on a surface while the rest of the material is transparent. This makes 3D Compositing much easier when compositing 3D objects with live action footage in Photoshop or After Effects.This new feature and updates in Cinema 4D R18 are just a few of many updates for C4D R18, available in 2016.
There are also additional updates to Cinema 4D R18 including the Material updates with the ThinFilm Shader and Parallax Bump Mapping, Inverted Ambient Occlusion, the new Shadow Catcher materials, MoGraph updates, new effectors, and more!
