I'm new to UDK, and am using it to develop a survival-horror game based heavily on shadows.

My question is short: is there a way to create an actor that, when rendered, ONLY renders its shadow (not itself)?

If UDK can't do this, is there any other engine (Unity, CryEngine, Source) that can?

    \$\begingroup\$ You can post it as an answer yourself, if you've verified it works. I don't use UDK or have a copy to test with, so I can't. \$\endgroup\$ Mar 8, 2014 at 3:19
