Screenshots, comp settings, effect info other stuff.
I've got a massive and messy comp, with lots going on, let me know what else you need to see. It's hard to show everything :/ And I know my work flow/layout may be flawed but on this project for me it works fine... Unless its caused this issue.
I've used motion blur, and luma keying. Some keyframes use ease and wizz.
What happens if you solo the layer? It's hard to tell which layer is which without some notes on the screenshots.
Apologies, it's a hugely messy comp and I'm not sure what to show/ tell you guys.
When I solo the layers I can see them (I've never particularly used the solo switch though)
The key problem layers are the ones that are selected on pics 2,3 - Julia MS and then 4,5 - Julia CU.
Thanks to you both for helping with this. I'm super confused :/
If the layers you are concerned with are popping into view when you solo them then you are probably running out of system resources. Flush your cache, set the comp resolution to AUTO and run your motion test previews at a zoom factor of 50%. This will quadruple the amount of available ram for previews because AE will be processing 1/4 of the original pixels for previews. I never lock comp resolution to full, even on my fully loaded brand new machines. Auto will handle all previews at all zoom factors efficiently.
I had already purged everything when I realised it might be that, I will try setting comp resolution to lower settings.
I have purged Image and disk cache, as well as cleaning the database and cache. Set zoom to 50 percent and resolution to auto, this set it to full in brackets but now is set to half in brackets. I'm still seeing nothing over the problem section. Not sure what's going on at all.
Thanks for the replies
I would start soloing all of the layers that should be visible at the problem section. Another approach would be to start turning off layers that are not supposed to be visible in the problem section. Another option would be to pre-compose the layers and only the layers in the problem section and run a test preview of just the problem section. This will eliminate the possibility that you have another layer somewhere that is causing the problem and help you find it if you do.
If those tricks don't work then take a look at all of the layers in the problem section and start turning off effects one at a time until you find the culprit.
