As you can see in the images, I've got some problems with the shadow of one light. My idea was to see R2D2 walking in the street, I used the same method as you can see in this tutorial: and I added a spotlight like this tutorial: BUT this didnt work.
I tried to resolve this problem alone, looking in internet to see if someone had the same problem but found nothing. I saw that some people posted their problem with Element 3D in this forum but after reading everything, nothing helped me.
I tried everything I could:
I put the plane model in another group foulder: nothing changed
I changed the parameters of the light: nothing changed
I changed the "map Size" in the" shadow maps": didnt work
I tried to put the plane model in another group null: nonono
I changed the position of the plane model: useless
I changed the size of the plane model: the shadow grow (depends of the map size)

I have no idea where this shadow come from and why the shadow of r2d2 is invisible. I tried everything I know but I have to admit that I have no solutions.
I hope the french language of my After effect didnt disturbe you. Thanks for reading me, I hope you can help me.

I solved the problem. I let this post open in any case one of you need it. If your problem is the same as I had, try to change the SHADOW MODE into RAY-TRACED and change some things. Just see this post in the forum of if you dont know how to do it or if your problem is still here:
