(There's no video for ALAP ShadowCaster XTension yet. Please contribute to MR and add a video now!)
The ShadowCaster XTension allows you to quickly create soft drop shadows for any item in a QuarkXPress document. The XTension gives you a tremendous amount of control over the production and placement of these depth-enhancing effects. All of the effects you can perform on shadows, such as combining them with other images, are accomplished within QuarkXPress and do not require the use of any image manipulation program.
All the required tools are provided by the ShadowCaster XTension in one convenient and accessible palette. ShadowCaster can use the outline of any QuarkXPress item as the basis for a shadow. The shadow is automatically placed into a picture box below the XPress item. The shadow itself is saved as a TIFF file in the folder and drive you specify. Here are just a few of the options ShadowCaster lets you specify:
• Resolution of the shadow (depending on the ultimate use for the shadow, such as high resolution printing or a multimedia presentation)
ShadowCaster also lets you save frequently used shadow settings and apply them later in much the same way you apply style sheets to paragraphs of text.
