Separate Photoshop Shadow Layer

When rendering to a layered Photoshop file, it would be extremely helpful to have the Object on one layer and the Cast Shadow on a separate layer. This will allow a designer the ability to manipulate shading and integrate it better into the picture. I have worked in 3D for many years (multiple programs) and this separate layered technique is one of the most used by artists and extremely powerful.

        improvement of shadow rendering quality is important. Particulary the "coreshadow" (do not know if that is the right english term) in the near of an object standing on the ground should be improved...
        shadows and Reflections should be separated passes...

        I would like to get the shadow and reflection pass separate.
        Now all I get is a 3D model with the shadows in in one layer. When I change the color of the background the shadows don't look right.
