Here, I have been experimenting with lights on 3D text to create believable shadows upon a scene. The 3D text was created in After Effects by duplicating the text layer 20 times and moving each layer one pixel further back in Z space. Using CC Glass on an adjustment layer then smoothed off the text. A lamppost, that can cast a shadow, was placed behind the text to enhance the effect of the shadows cast by the text on a shadow catching layer. 3 lights were then attached to the nearside headlight of the three passing cars.
