I was wondering if it's possible to completely turn off the shadows and render a model with no background whatsoever?
There seem to be plenty of videos out there explaining how to control shadows however I never get the result I want - a 100% transparent, completely shadow-free background.
Any information is appreciated, thank you!
Just turn off the "Ground Shadows" in the environment settings (project panel).
And also you can turn off "Shelf Shadows" in the lighting tab. Then the scene will look similar as in performance mode (which, btw, can also be used for renderings, if 3 samples are enough for your scene)
