Pre comp animation stops when keyframing in anotber comp
on Sep 26, 2015 at 6:59:18 pm

Hi,

im just starting out with AE and have created a flying bat with animated wings in a precomp. I have then brought this into a main composition, the loop works fine until I try to move the bat through the air with position keyframes - but during the animated position frames the animated wings stop and are just static and only begin animating again when the bat stops moving position....any ideas whats causing this, as I just want to move the bat through the air with wings animating all the time.

many thanks
Rob

That shouldn't happen, but you haven't shared very many details about your system or your project, so it's tough to diagnose.

Step 1: Try clearing your cache.

Ae CC/CC2014:
Edit > Purge > All Memory & Disk Cache

Ae CS6:
Preferences > Media & Disk Cache > Empty Disk Cache

Also, if you are running Ae CS6, make sure you've installed the updates. The persistent disk cache feature was new in CS6 and there were a good number of bug fixes in the CS6 point releases.

If this doesn't work, please come back with detailed system specs, Ae version, and maybe a screenshot or video capture showing your full UI and the problem you're having.
