so my after effects started doing this for no reason and im not sure if I pressed a button or what happened but basically in the workspace im not able to change the amount or number of the effect and I was wondering if anyone knew why or how to fix it.
note: this happens for all effects, Happens for all Compositions, Happens for every video imported and I have tried to reboot my computer and restart after effects.
Click on the far left icon at the bottom of the Timeline (Expand or Contract Layer Switch). If that does not work, Right click on any of the column headers and select Switches / Modes or try pressing F4. You've hidden a column. You might also want to reset your current workspace.
Thank you so much! I had the icon in the bottom left unclicked I can finally get back to editing Thank you
