I have a problem. I want my character to have a 3D shadow on the ground. So I have created 2 lights and a ground. THis ground must cast the shadow. I have the good settings. The shadow is on the ground, but when I turn on the layers of the road and another layer (backgroud), the shadow disappears. Layers are in the good position.

This is a video recording of my screen to illustrate my problem :

That service that you uploaded your video is very intrusive with pop-up ads, etc.

You can upload videos to the COW without having to use hosting services like the one you've chosen.

See 3D layer interactions, render order, and collapsed transformations [link] for a list of things that prevent 3D interactions and shadow casting.
