Shadow kind of sucks sometimes because you can't change the color of the background because the shadow isn't actually black unless you render on a black background. If you render on a black background then the edges of your product end up having a black fringe. So I'd like to revert back to my Max workflow for the most part.

Get multiple images. I want 1 with just the ground shadow, and one without the ground shadow. On the rare cases I want a ground reflection, that's another pass. No shadow, no product, just the ground reflection.

I'd Love to do that all in one step. Right now I have to send different renders. I feel like it could be a render pass.
