I'm happily working away and suddenly the transfer modes in all my nested comps are no longer being preserved in the master comp.
The collapse transformation switch for the nested comps is enabled in the master comp. I haven't changed anything it just suddenly happened.
I've tried creating a new nested comp and the problem is still there.
deadline looming as ever, any help most appreciated

Well, you must have changed something. Perhaps enabled OpenGL? Applied a layer style? Added an adjustment layer somewhere? Something is breaking your render order, that's a fact. Double-check those things.
thanks for reply very helpful.
you're right I did change something, I applied the glow effect to 1 of the nested comps and that's when the transfer mode stopped working (or maybe that's just when i noticed it had stopped working). not just for that nested comp but for all of them
turning the glow effect on and off again or deleting it made no difference. i tried turning openGL on and off, no difference.
when you said something had broken the render order I thought why not just import the whole lot into a new after effects file and bingo everything is fine again.
oh joy I think this job will be delivered on time
