To kill the shadow coming from the purple sphere you need to add a "Object Layer Map" to it.
Hmmm...Otoy, more specific than killing the purple sphere's shadow is what I would want, I want just the iPad to get no shadow, meaning that if there were other objects yet in between the purple sphere and iPad, they would in fact get the shadow from the purple sphere, just not the iPad.....maybe there is no way then, to isolate an otherwise "shadow-receiving object" from getting a shadow?
if I put another green sphere between the iPad and the purple sphere, have an option so that the in-between green sphere would get the shadow from the purple sphere, but then be able to select it so that the iPad would not be getting the shadow from the purple sphere.
Otoy team, maybe add in a 2nd Shadow Visibility checkbox in Object Layer Map,
Shadow Visibility - Receives shadow
Shadow Visibility - Casts shadow
...so that you could isolate separate objects from both casting/receiving shadows (almost along the lines of the new Light ID system where some reflect and some can be excluded.)
