    A Bug in layer effects?

      Hi,

      Hopefully the animated gif is self explanatory. (edit: looks like animated GIFs don't work so have included each frame as a separate image).

       

      I have used a layer effect to draw a stroke inside the border of an image and all I would like to do is to hide it at a certain point in time.

       

      If I hide the layer effect it does exactly as I would like.

       

      But if I try to reduce the opacity to 0 then instead of viewing the image behind it crops the image.

       

      My only solution appears to be to set the stroke OUTSIDE the images, but I would REALLY REALLY like to avoid this as there are many, many precomps from photoshop that I've produced with the stroke inside.

       

      Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

      Thanks,
