I like that the background is a seperate layer but i really need the objects on seperate layers with the ability to turn shadows on and off. I can make object layers from the selection masks however i cant seperate the shadows without just re-making them. Is there a way to so this???
Thanks.

Tom.

I would like to have a PSD file after rendering, which has each object in a seperate folder with 2 layers. One for object and one for it's shadow. This way you can move the objects around the scene in photoshop. Just like a regular PSD mockup. Is this possible?
Thanks.

Tom.
