Field Shadows with other objects

I want to have an object cast shadows onto a field sim, is this possible? I can’t find anything that would enable it. Picture should further explain the issue, a spehere casting a shadow on a plane without affecting the field primitive in between.

Have you got a Field Shadows node in your Field system already?
If yes, then make sure the “Apply to Solid Objects” attribute is turned on.

Thanks, I didnt have the field shadows node, but from what I can see it only makes the field cast shadows onto the solid objects. I would like it to be the other way around, solid objects casting shadows on the field!

Solid objects casting shadows onto fields isn’t supported at present - its a lot more intensive a process. We’re overhauling fields for 1.0, so I’ll try to make sure we address this there.
