Default Need Help ! shadow render problem

Hi, i have a problem when i try to render a plane with a image at the transparency node...

the image is 100% black and 100% white, but when i render the shadow apears like the plane still had a little of opacity.

i tried all diferent tipes of light, all kinds of shaders, put the image as a projections, adjusted thealpha gain and offset. i did everything i could, but nothing work.

i put a checker as transparency and didnīt have the problem... just with the image.

i would be VERY happy if someone could help me.

i put the image at my website:

Talking the solution !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Iīm Veeeeery happy
i found the solution
itīs very simple:
just set the material's shadow attenuation value to "0" which can be found in raytrace options of the material used !

it works very fine !

i spent almost 2 days to solve this problem.

i found it at this link: http://www.3dbuzz.com/vbforum/showth...t=transparency
