I have recently encountered a weird bug (or I'm being stupid) in After Effects CC 2015.
If I ever create a new comp or hide all the layers of a current comp, rather than have a blank composition in front of me like you would expect, I have text and an icon from a previous video job I designed.
No matter what I do I can't get rid of this graphic until I start adding layers to hide it.
I've restarted my computer. Reset my AE preferences. Still not working.
I've attached a screenshot to show what appears when I create a new comp.
Go to the Edit menu and select Purge and the Purge Everything....
Go to preferences and empty disk cache.
Make sure your AE is up to date. There were a lot of cache bugs in previous versions.
Purging worked thank you! You learn something new everyday.
