I follow this step by step in AE CC, I get to 2:54 where you turn "accept lights" off on the BG layer and my text doesn't poke through slightly on the top like it does here- it just turns the whole solid white, then when I switch the transfer mode to multiply, it does nothing at all... the solid and text are all just white with no light... Any ideas?

TUTORIAL NOTES:
When working with lights be sure to change the composition to Adaptive Resolution instead of OpenGL. You may also try using a Spot Light instead of a Point Light.
