Newbie question: I have downloaded an AE project, I have to do language adaptation for. This is the first time i can look into a someone else's AE work.
Somehow there are elements in pre-comps I don't see a layer for. They just sit there. If I uncheck all layers, the elements still are visible. (img below)
Is this a bug or a feature? What's going on here?
Guide layers? Hidden/ shy-ed pre-comps? Corrupted cache? Issues with the PNG loading? Impossible to tell. Cropping screenshots and dumping floating windows on top of the timeline that may hold such critical info clearly doesn't help. Conversely, without seeing your project and more info about your version of AE, assets used and so on nobody can even begin to take a guess.
My guess is it's shy layers as Mylenium mentions.
Did you fix this "ghosting" issue?
