Hi,

Can anyone help me with this?

When I put a spot light to an object, the light shine goes through it!
It should hit the first wall, or object, but not shine behind it.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Check that the light is casting shadows, and if it's set to raytrace shadows, make sure that raytracing is on in the render options panel. Also make sure the objects are set to cast and recieve shadows.

If it is single plane object it will have to be double sided to cast shadows.

Here's something else you can do when you get home tonight that you'll find useful. Read the manual.

I have to agree with Giger, if you're new to 3D, spending a few hours reading the manual will teach you things you won't even know to ask about for years. And if you're really into 3D, it'll be an fascinating read.
