When you say you're unable to preview, could you be more specific? Does it crash? Does it show nothing? Screenshots might help.
Hi, thanks for your reply. It shows nothing. Literally just a blank screen, or at least missing the elements from the Cineware layer.
Render Settings 'standard' (draft):
Render Settings 'software' (wireframe):
All of the 'Software' render settings behave in this way. Here's also a screen grab of my setup:
That's not blank. Go to the bottom of your composition panel and crank the exposure up.
Oh, that makes things clearer, thank you.
What happens if you set your comp to full resolution?
Sorry, I should have sent you that in the first place.
At full resolution I have the same problem.
I never found a fix to this problem and am now back attempting to work with the Cineware… In December I wiped my laptop and reinstalled everything from scratch - I still cannot see wireframe previews in AE. Any new ideas that I could try in order to fix this? I have opened my project on another machine and the problem goes away, so it’s specific to my system it would seem.
