Just playing around trying to add a Pov CSG object (the tripod) into a photo.
Pretty pleased with the effect but I am wondering if there is an official method
of doing something like this to get better results?
I googled it and found some interesting information by Robert McGregor that I
just I didn't understand ;-)
Then I found someone who (can't recall who) mentioned using no_object to create
a scene with just the shadows which I could then merge (using code from Robert's
method) to render combine the shadow and image data.
I really have no idea what I am doing here but it seemed to work better than
expected. I could probably improve it by adding steps to my shadow scene so the
shadow raises but I would then have to lift up one of the Tripod legs as they
are currently all at the same level and as the Tripod is a CSG model that would
be a lot more effort than I have time for.
