I'm working on a music video (mainly live footage) and the footage plays perfectly fine in a sub comp (e.g. comp1 image below: BASS1) but in the main comp the footage goes blank every few seconds (e.g. Blank image: Vids 2).
When I render it the same thing happens - the video disappears in parts! I also used some effect like Trapcode Particular in the subcomp and the effect appears in the final render just fine but the video still vanishes every few seconds.
I'm hoping its some simple setting I'm missing but I'm under time pressure and can't seem to resolve it. All and any help appreciated!!!
After Effects CS5 V 10.0.0.458
Plug ins - Trapcode Particular (glitch happens even without this)
Windows 7 64-bit

Make sure the composition settings and the frame rates match. Purge all of your cash and memory then try again.
Thanks a million for the response. You were right the subcomp was 25fps and the main comp was 24fps...I've changed the maincomp to 25 (which is the footage fps) and purged however the video is now completely blank in the main comp!
Rick - I copied the footage from the subcomp into a new comp and tried that and it worked!! You are my HERO!!
Thank you so much.
