Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Elementary script, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
So, I have a little bit of confession to make, in this project we have been…looking at here and there throughout this training series where I have like this…sphere full of cubes casting or reflection or casting a shadow rather.…This shadow was fake I went and I rendered a still frame of that object and then…distorted it and tweaked it so it looks like a shadow, but actually it's just a…single solitary layer it's not a real shadow.…And that's because again at the time of this recording Element can't cast…shadows. It's something that they are working on so, maybe about the time you're…watching this, we'll be able to do that.…
But there are some limitations with Element as we talked about, the reflections…and that type of thing.…But there is a script that has been created that you can purchase.…That will allow you to overcome some of these obstacles and it's called…Elementary. And once you install it, I can to the Window menu and open this up.…It's actually a script or the UI scripts and this is what elementary looks like.…
