Bevel effect to create shadows and highlights?

Hey guys

I wondered if I could somehow create an emboss/bevel effect like in photoshop without having to make drawings for the shadow and the highlight. This way (at least) simple shading on characters could be done pretty fast.
I think it could be faked with some kind of directional inner glow (which I also can’t find in the modul library) or some clever Matte Resizes, but at the moment I can’t really get the right effect.
Has anybody here a suggestion how that could be done? I appreciate any advice. :slight_smile:
