Ball rendering shadows


I have some issues with my ball rendering settings. I have tried adding the three light setup, but have some issues with my shadows.

Frame 14

Frame 15

As you can see I have some clipping issue or something with my light and shadows so the shadows from the ball does not appear the first 14 frames. Any ideas?

I also have this ugly artifact going along my floor, the black jagged stripe. What could this be?

I believe this is caused by the clip start and end of the light. Try changing the value of that. Select the lamp and go to the lamp settings and under shadow, change that

I did try changing the clip start, but nothing happened
