After rendering your architectural visualisation the fine-tuning in Photoshop starts. An everyday work is to place some persons in the rendering to bring life to the scenerey. Naturally in every architectural visualisation the sun is shining – thats why you need to create shadows as well. For quickly create some shadows “lokas software” offers a free plug-in.
After completed installation you will find the tool via filters. There are various different settings to control the distance, perspective and blur of the shadow.
Sadly the preview is a bit too slow and as far as I know you can not zoom out of the preview image. Nevertheless it is a handy tool to quickly create some shadows in a small project.
The plu-in “3d Shadow” is freeware and can be found at “lokas software” for free download.
