I'm a beginner in AE, just downloaded a free template from http://www.freeaetemplates.com/
I try to change the text and logo in the template, but the text just doesn't show:((. Click Reset Character and change current Time Indicator doesn't work. I also installed the missing fonts in the template but still no luck. Could you please help me pointing out my problem and how to fix this?
My OS info: Window 7, Adobe After Effect CS3.
There are my layer info:
+ Opacity; 100%.
+ Layer Styles: Lots of layer style exists, I just "Remove All" but this doesn't help.
+ Color: Ok, color is white and background is black.
+ Opengl: turned off already.
+ Effects: No effect there.
+ "Bad font": don't really understand it, but I think Reset Character make it OK, right?
And where can I check matte/opacity options, please:D?
Try this first. Turn on transparency grid at the bottom of your composition window. It's the icon that looks like a mineature checkerboard just to the left of the Composition Camera selector. If you don't see any text declect all layers, select the type tool and type a few characters in the comp window. If you still don't see anything make sure that your previews are not set to wireframe. If you do see text then there's a setting you're missing or a keyframe you're behind in the timeline. Look there.
