Shadows in FCP? Duplicate the layer with the key, add a “colorcorrector”filter, turn down brights, mids, and darks all the way. Also turn down the saturation all the way. make y the layer say 50%transparent, and use the distort tool to lay it on the ground. Add a blur filter. As long as the BGisn’tto complicated, that should work.
