I created new project and it works now, seems to be just Blender's glitch.


Try unchecking Indirect lighting and set Gather to Raytrace.

    $\begingroup$ The message above is generated by review. I didn't downvote. Your answer came up as "Low Quality in the review" IMO it's borderline, I went the way of delete as it could be a comment, Try A or B... rather than A does this B does that to give the result you want. Others need to vote for it to be a fate de compli .. oh and is crude human an option. $\endgroup$
