I can't select a layer, it's all grayed out...

Okay, I'll ask the obvious: do you have another layer in this comp to use as a blur map?

Strangely enough, it's the same in AE2015 as in AE2017. I must admit, windows did its update-thingy today, while I wasn't looking... And it did work fine the previous days.

If you haven't restarted the machine since the OS updated, you should.

Well, I just tapped out my AE 2017 diagnostic knowledge. The Home Office dictates that we run CC 2015.

Well, that's the strangest part of it all, it happens both in CC2015 as in CC2017 ( I started the project in CC2015, due to all the 2017-issues). I'm thinking about a reinstall right now, sigh.

i would try reseting the preferences before that. I'd also see if there might be any driver updates for your video card... this feels like a slight compatibility issue between the os, after effects and/or a driver....

Whaaa, I precomped my layer and applied the camera lens blur inside the precomp: IT WORKS!
Still don't understand the why, but who cares, it's the endresult that matters.
