I have a composition consisting of about 25 layers, some of which I turn on or off each week when generating a new opening for a weekly report. Everything's worked fine up until today. Whether I'm rendering or trying to do a RAM preview, as soon as the bar gets to any one of four identical layers I have turned on(Identical save the picture of the person on the layer), it stops. If I turn the layer off, it goes fine and the green render bar proceeds. But as soon as I turn it on, it stops.The layers in question are .pdf with a mask and a simple movement across the screen. I just noticed that the same thing happens when I turned on another .pdf layer.
I hadn't had any problems for .pdfs until just now.
What's up with that?
I made a .psd version with layers and imported it into AE and it works fine. Not sure what the issue is with .pdfs.
