Wow, I got excited when I finally gave up and got help with this problem. I found the exact solution on a previous post:

The question was how to keep the shadow of an object in one layer from being casted onto another object in another layer. I wanted to keep the shadow of layer two from casting onto the object in layer one, so I figured it would be done as so:

The problem is that it did't work. I've spent hours trying to select every possible combo of buttons and scouring the web and I can't get it. I need to quit being like a stubborn mule sometimes and know when to get help. Any of which would be much appresh.

  • $\begingroup$ Ok, I kinda got it to work. Seems to every now and again to not work. Could be a bug. Either way, when it does work I try to press the right layer and exclude buttons so other objects in the fourth or 5th layer don't have any effect on the other layers and blender throws a hissy. So i don't know what I'm going to do about that. Please help $\endgroup$ – cigar_matt Oct 4 '14 at 1:51
  • $\begingroup$ I know this question is old, but in case you still want an answer, is it possible you could upload a .blend? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Oct 23 '14 at 0:09
  • $\begingroup$ I don't think I can load a file because I don't have enough points or experience or however they gauge your rank on this page. I don't see one anyway. $\endgroup$ – cigar_matt Oct 24 '14 at 19:36
  • $\begingroup$ There currently isn't anyway to upload files to this site, you'll have to use another hosting site like pasteall.org/blend and post the link here. $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Oct 24 '14 at 19:40
