I made a lower third graphic for a short film. It has transparency and is to be composited into the edited piece.
When I render it out, AE adds a background image from another project. That project isn't even on the drive I'm working off of for this one. I have tried rendering as both ProRes 4444 and Animation, but each time that background image pops in again.
I've tried trashing the prefs, but that didn't work.
I'm losing my mind on this as the deadline looms over my head. What the hell is going on?
Purge all cache and memory then try again.
Oh man, you're a lifesaver! And I learned something I didn't know.
