    Custom shatter map

    Oleggg Level 1

      Hello Friends.


      I'am newbie in attractive After Effects world. Please, help me out. I try to understand nature of Shatter FX, precisely - using Custom Shatter Map.


      I do following steps:


      1. Create New Comp.

      2. Create New Solid Layer - Layer1 - then I apply Shatter Fx to it.

      3, Create New Solid Layer - Layer2 - then it become Custom Map.


      Then to Layer2 I apply Fractal Noise and Colorama as subscribe in public Tutorial.

      Then In Shatter Panel I choose         Pattern -> Custom, Custom Shatter map -> Layer2. But, when I choose View -> Rendered........Layer1 simply fall down and all -> NO Shatter Effect..................But after further analysis (tutorial) I observed , that Layer2 (Custom Map) must be precomposed............. and now all work properly.


      What difference??? Why     , when Layer2 don't precomposed,     Shatter effect don't work properly????????????
