Octane lights - cast shadow only

Hi,

I was wondering if the above is possible?

Basically I want to art direct certain shadows in my scene without any of the accompanying illumination that comes with the light.

Native c4d lights have a 'shadow catcher' checkbox to achieve this, but i dont think this works in Octane.

Any ideas on how to make this happen?

Thanks,
redroster

Hiu redroster,
you have to check shadow catcher in diffuse or universal material.
