The ultimate tool for simulating Shadows in After Effects

Raytraced shadows are notoriously slow to simulate, so fake it. Works based on the alpha channel just like the regular drop shadow but with results so gorgeous they’ll be mistaken for 3D.



Core Features:

  • 3 main modes: regular, inner & radial
  • Fine control over falloff (opacity, distance and softness)
  • 5 stylistic presets to get instant results (long, soft, diffuse)
  • Custom texture layer to add grit to your shadows
  • 32bpc color precision
  • Apple Silicon Native
  • MFR enabled
  • Powerful quality controls to optimise render times
