    Shadow is not working on layer with effects

    Haris Pilton

      Hi,

       

      i am creating a video in After Effects CS5 for a study project and i need some help with this:

       

      I habe a ground on which my elements are 'standing' (shape layer). It receives no light, but shadow. Everything as i want it so far.

       

      But when i add effeccts to the ground (for example a gradient), the shadow disappears.

       

      Here some screenshots of my problem:

       

      Shadow is working, no effects on the ground (shape layer):

      As is add effects to the shape layer, the shadow disappers:
