The Shadow Tool

The Shadow Tool (shortcut "Ctrl + F2") lets you apply, remove, and modify semi-transparent (or "soft") shadows.

The transparency of soft shadows increases towards the edges, which gives a very realistic effect. Shadows are resolution independent so you can scale them without losing quality.

Shadow Position

There are three shadow types:

  • Wall - where the shadow is cast on a wall behind the object
  • Floor - where the object appears to be standing upright on a surface.
  • Glow - where the shadow is used to add a halo effect around the object
