    AE issue - activating 3D layer capability disables Stencil Alpha

    ninose11 Level 1

      I have a map of the Roman Empire that I would like to animate with a 3D flyover. I know that for this I need to add a camera to the scene and give all layers the 3D Layer aspect. But doing so disables Stencil Alpha which is a huge problem. I used a shape layer to trace out the Roman Empire in red. My map consists of only land and the blue project background for the ocean.

      The "land" layer is the beige area. So making the land "Stencil Alpha" allows me to color ONLY the land area red.

      But as soon as the land layer has 3D enabled this is what happens: the exact opposite of what I wish to display. The ocean is colored red and the land has no red.

      There must be a way to do this, but I'm completely stumped. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help me resolve this.
