I have a simple comp in hitfilm and wanted to dig into the continuum package and its text elements. I dont know the proper way to really manipulate it but I usually throw it into a 2d plane and let the effect use the comp light and camera. Nothing on shadows however, which makes me wonder if its even possible to draw shadows through this 2D plane while going through the text effect. In addition I wanted to know if it was possible to get true 3d text which can interact with 3d planes (slide in and out like the netflix intro sequence) as well as cast shadows onto itself. Maybe I need to export true .obj text objects to use instead but it would be convenient to use simple extrusions.
