AI file converted to shape layer for extruding, won't maintain it's original color

Hello guys,

Basically the problem is mentioned in the title. I have two separate logos in the form of AI files which I've imported in After Effects for extruding via the Ray-trace engine.

I convert each one of them to shape layers in individual compositions but when I add a spot light, one layer maintains its original color (red) whereas the other one goes grey and takes the white from the spot light.

I'm using the same composition, material, geometry and light settings for both layers.

What should be the problem here? Each logo was designed by a different person in Illustrator, so could the problem come from a setting present there?

Can you upload a screen grab with your composition settings open, even better would be to upload the AI files(last icon above) and perhaps someone here can take a quick look to see what the issue could be.

Sorry for the delayed answer but I was pretty busy in this period and I had to put this project on hold.

I've attached both logos in the following links.
