might this help? If that is what I think it is then it's Flyby's script for setting renders up.

Camera: Isometric centered at 0,0,0
Light: Distant Parallel, hard shadow, 75% bright white. Set location yourself, have it always point at 0,0,0
Ambient light: 25%
Floor: 0,0,255 luminescent
AA: Off

Render at 3 or 5 times size and resize final SHP with either BS SHP or XCC Mixer but not anything else.

Why resize it? When not just render at the target size to start with (since FlyBy's script lets you set a reference base object that lets you know what foundation and likely height are going to be). You should do two renders, one without the ground plane for the shadow (will let you AA without AAing to background if you disable that option) and then another with AA turned off but the plane in place to get the shadow. There are then various ways of removing the building from the shadow frame and combine them with XCC or whatever.

Rendering big and resizing allows you to achieve smoothing like AA but without any disastrous edge bleeding.
