I have been trying to get the 3D light layer to work but it won't.
Haven't had any issuses with lighting beofre but I haven't been on AE for a while and was trying to remember the keyboard shortcuts so I might have pressed a wrong key by accident which might have disable/enabled something that might stop the Light Layer from working?
I have tried applying the Light Layer in a new comp which was more simpler than what I originally wanted it to work in but still had no luck.
Is it possible that I might have deleted the plugin for this?
Does anyone know what the plugin name for the original Light Layer in AECS5 is called so I can have a look in that folder to see if it's still there?
Below is a screen shot of what I am working on. It is a 3D cube and as you can see, the Light is not working.
Is there something that I have pressed by accident to disable the light from working like the Draft3D button?
Thank you for your time and help.
In your screen shot, I see a light shining on a comp full of BLACK layers. The last time I checked, the color black doesn't show up well when a light is shined on it. I also see that each black layer has a track matte applied, which is probably wrong. It's also difficult to see a light shining on a black layer against a white background. Finally, you also have to set the layer properties for those black layers to "Accepts Lights".
Dave, you are a star!!
Thank you so much for your help.
You were right, the light doesn't show well on the black layers. I have adjusted them to a red and the light is visable, which is a shame as I need the box to be black but I will try and find a way around that. The main thing is that everything is still working.
Thank you sir. Hope that you have a good day.
