Easy realtime shadow catcher for Blender 2.8 Eevee.
This is a simple material setup that allows to make a simple yet effective shadow catcher. I've been using this shadow catcher in all my projects since I've switched to 2.8 and its in all my products as well. here is a version with just the monkey head. The featured images are also of my other assets that uses that exact same shadow catcher material trick.
Saves you time and quickly have shadow with a good light source that already works in both look dev and render with transparency.
Simply load the file, delete the monkey and create or append in your own scene and delete the monkey!
Easy as 1, 2, 3!
