Setting up our Shadow Matte Material

In this part of the Adobe Road Show series, you are going to use a preset material created by Josh called "Shadow Matte". It will help with catching the shadows cast by the robots for later use in the compositing process.
You will place the Shadow Matte material onto the proxy geometry and then create a duplicate of the the proxy geometry will be created to generate proper reflections.

A link to the Shadow Matte preset and a additional tutorial on how to use can be found at: http://www.vfxdaily.com/tutorial-05-c4d-multi-pass-renderingcompositing-and-shadow-catching/
