Shadow workaround? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

Bug: Can't reset shadow to immediately beneath object

Workaround: Create different layers and put the graphics in the right layer such that the shadow is cast on the layer.
eg:

Code:
set middleLayer to make new layer at end of layers with properties {name:"middleLayer"}
set imageShape to make new shape at end of graphics of middleLayer with properties {draws shadow:true, size:{218, 150}, origin:{25, 28}, thickness:1, shadow vector:{3, -3}}
-- Can't set image directly in a layer
tell imageShape to set {image} to {"/path/to/image.jpg"}

set backLayer to make new layer at end of layers with properties {name:"backLayer"}
set backShape to make new shape at beginning of graphics of backLayer with properties {draws shadow:false, size:{270, 198}, origin:{0, 0}, thickness:0, fill:"linear blend", fill color:{0.576, 0.576, 0.576}, gradient color:{0.18, 0.18, 0.18}, gradient angle:90, gradient center:{-1, -1}}
And now the shadow from the image appears on the background shape.

Issues: You can't put the graphics into a group to manipulate them further, and similar cross-layer issues, but at least they look correct.

Thoughts?
