Afternoon

I've been experimenting with casting shadows from Genesis figures onto a simple plane. All looks great but can't for the life of me figure out how to have the plane be invisible in the render but retain the shadows

Found a great tutorial on YouTube (2 bears) but had problems in that my shadow catcher brick would not connect to my shader mixer's material colour


If anyone has any suggestions I'd be greatly appreciative

Thank you -

Jay
