Im not sure every 3d plugin needs a shadow version as well. The plugin sizes are pretty big already and adding shadow versions would double them.

If you want a shadow version of a tiff plugin its very easy to make yourself. Simply open each image and make it completly black. As long as you preserve the alpha channel you will end up exact shadow version.

Maybe AlamDV could include an option to display as plugin as just a shadow. I dont know how tricky that would be

Good idea Malone or alam dv could make shadow group on the plug-in tree so plug-in maker can make shadow version of their plug-in and you could put their plug-in there so it easy for people to know what shadow plug-in they looking for.

+1 each good ideas.
the shadow idea is good for still shots, but uploading the same file size for an animated one would be too much for alamdv.

I like malones idea, people could change the tiff's, but if they don't want to ruin it they could PM the maker and ask him to make a shadow.

That would be an excellent idea Malone!

If you can implement it!
