Shadow Catcher In Action
In the first slide, we see Indirect Shadow enabled with a Roughness value of 0.1. This creates an almost crystal clear reflection of our prop. This could be especially interesting to use for product visualization renders.
The second slide shows a value of 0.5 gives a wet look effect that enhances believability by integrating the prop with the cobblestone street. A roughness map is applied to add some variation to the shadow’s roughness.
The final slide demonstrates a Roughness value of 0.8, producing a subtle yet effective shadow.
