Layers not casting shadows.

I have some 3d layers and a light and a camera. In the materials for the layers, the materials are both set to accept and cast shadows and nothing is showing up. My light is set to cast shadows and I have run out of ideas. Any thoughts?

Got it. Apparently the Stroke Layer style was preventing the shadows from showing. Odd.

See "3D layer interactions, render order, and collapsed transformations" for an explanation.
