    AE - Layer that casts shadow but doesn't accept light?

    afterburner

      Hello there,

      First of all, I'm using the AE CS4 (due to the 32-bit version) and I have a little problem there:

       

      Please check this image below:

      As you can see, I have some rectangle and there's shadow in the back beneath it. What I wanna do, is that I want to create this rectangle and have SHADOW APPLIED on it but I DON'T want the solid to be affected by the light (as you can see, there's an ugly gradient caused by light).

      I tried to enable the "accept shadows" and disable the "accept lights" option but that doesn't work since the layer doesn't accept lights it doesn't accept shadows, either. Any ideas?

       

      Thanks.
