Strange results on this project. I have included a VPR render below that appears to have the shadows as expected. Next is a "regular" render. The lights in the scene are a Keylight (Dome), FocalLight (Spotlight), and a FillLight (Distant). In this render, the collar of the dog, casts a shadow on the ground, and the shadows don't relate to the general geometry??? Below that, I turned off the distant and spotlight, which made the collar go away, but the shadows are still weird?? Anybody else???

Any ideas??? Anybody else seeing this?? I had un-installed previous versions before installing 10.1 RC Gold, scanned for plugins and re-set my menu options. The VPR rendering correctly is comforting, but how does a solid object (Bulldog) allow a Collar to be casting a shadow, through the dog???
