Perfect for corporate, business and marketing videos

With the recent popularity of flat design the long shadow technique has appeared to bring a modern twist to the basic drop shadow effect. Subtly ‘lifting’ elements above one another the long shadow effect emulates the type of parallel shadow associated with distant light sources, such as sunlight. Long shadow techniques can be seen with or without opacity fall-off.
