Casey, check your terminology. I'm sure you are talking about layer styles rather than effects in the calssical AE sense. Unfortunately layer styles break 3D rendering because they are applied last and thus invalidate some previous calculations. This is also noted in the manual/ help. The only way to sensibly use them with 3D is to pre-compose the items carrying them and then use the pre-comp in place of the original comp. Also consider building your drop shadows, glows, strokes and so on with "classical" effects. It is absolutely possible to mimic the behavior of layer styles this way, it may just require you to combine multiple effects to get the same look.
thanks, I was trying to apply various blurs and warps and such. I was thinking to precompose to fix it (I seem to remember that working sometime in the past) but couldn't remember the workflow for doing that. Thanks
Yes, displacement effects are also a critical point in this workflow. Blurs however should not do anything strange and work when applied directly. Let us know if you need further assistance.
