Hi, is the problem solved meanwhile? We talked about it 2 years ago. It is a very difficult problem but i was sure that it is been solved in the latest version. So i made some changes 2 years ago.
I think i changed the path to mbarnick. You can open some files with a text-editor and have a look at the settings.

Hello, I have copied the DSF file to /data/Markus Barnick/ShadowCatcher/ShadowCatcher/ShadowCatcher.dsf, and /data/mbarnick/ShadowCatcher/ShadowCatcher/ShadowCatcher.dsf ** but DAZ says: shaders/mbarnick/shadowcatcher.dsf is missing

I created a tutorial for ShadowCatcher, on my site for DAZ Studio

good idea, I don't use photos but might be useful when compositing.

It's OK, thank you :o)))

No. You should load your own photo in the environment and then add a plane. The plane gets the ShadowCatcher.
The park and the pic above is a foto i used for the background.
You should be able to use the *.dsf - file in the active folder when daz asks.

Thank you, the path is wrong, as I created in My Library / Data directories Markus Barnick, Shadowcatcher, Shadowcatcher where I copied ShadowCatcher.dsf - it's OK :o)) -.But after rendering, I have an image with a black background.
