    Noob Q: How do I make a Levels Adjustment Layer affect the original footage?

    DrStrik9 Level 4

      This has GOT to be simple ... (AE CS6 V. 11.0.2.11)

       

      I have a simple animation rendered (Tiff-32-bit) in a 3D app. I loaded it as a sequence. No problem.

       

      I added an Adjustment layer OVER the footage, and chose Levels as the Effect.

       

      But when I change the gamma, I see NO CHANGES in the footage preview. I've tried adding keyfames, etc., but nothing I've tried so far gives me ANY visual feedback on exactly how my Levels adjustment is affecting the footage. -- Same no-effect result with Curves.  :-(

       

      What am I missing?

       

      Thanks,

      DS
