Project Shadow Drop

Create realistic shadows in 2D images

Without knowledge of scene geometry and lighting, it can be difficult to create and control realistic shadows on 2D images.

Project Shadow Drop solves this problem using the 2D position of the light source and the horizon. Now, with just a few clicks you can generate realistic shadows. You can also control the softness and direction of the shadows, create shadows of different styles for animated sequences and even create shadows that automatically match the scene when compositing images!

Project Shadow Drop can be applied on 2D vector art, photographs, and even videos and animations. Check out the video to see it in action.
