Shadow Catcher has been “broken” for a couple years now. Is there any progess on a possible fix?
(not a developer) Not “broken”, just not as feature rich as some might want and there’s no limit to that. For example - I find inability to denoise the alpha without compositing problematic way more often than colors in shadow catcher. But for someone else some other aspect is of higher importance. And pushing one stops another.
But just like with denoising the alpha, getting a colorful shadow or a reflection can be done by compositing nodes the old way - rendering a layer without particular shadow/reflection and extracting those from the difference.
just like the select through , we don’t have enough focus on finishing the basiced function，which make blender always lack of some important part
