We have an issue with certain AfterEffects projects that utilize Shine or Starglow. The effects will show during RAM Preview, but during Render they will disappear. This seems to vary from project to project, but is consistent across workstations with the same given project file.
The only thing that has changed is an update from AfterEffects 8.0 to 8.0.2. I have tried reverting to 8.0, but I can't consistently get the plugins to operate correctly with the projects in question even when I do this.
Identical XPpro SP2 workstations with 3gig of RAM and 256MB NVIDIA Quadro FX 3450/4000.
