How to extend time on pre comp layers and timeline?
on Sep 27, 2018 at 9:54:19 am

By default, AE set time of new project to 30s. Now that I have reached this time, video ends. I went to a composition setting to increase time to 60s. When i want to check it, timeline did increase, but my layers just disappear in 30s of time. I went to every layer (i have many pre comp because i have imported AI file with layers) and set composition setting to 60s also, and drag that line in timeline to 60s. But even now, after 30s, layers just disappear. How can i really extend time and to have layers and compositions till end time? This is a screenshot of my problem:

You're probably not seeing the layers because you may have changed the total duration of those pre-comps but you may have missed to extend the layers inside them to the 60s mark.

A nested comp or a precomp behave like any other layer. You can drag the out point tabs on them or you use keyboard shortcuts to do it.

There's a script to do all this for you:
