I'm having the same issue that everyone else seems to be having...

I have no 2D layers of any kind in my comp (unless you want to count some lights or the camera, which are on the top of the stacking order). It consists of a few pre-comps with collapse transformations on (to realize the 3D nature of each comp). I can give more details, but let's get to the real frustrating part...

When I move my camera around, everything looks like how I want it, with the 3D elements behaving the way I want, but when the window updates with the full-res preview, THAT's when layers pop out of place. Why is it that the low-res preview would be more accurate than the full-res one?

Oh, my comps are made up of JPGs, PNGs, and a few PSD layers with no adjustment layers...

The real interesting part is that I didn't notice any issues until my comp grew to the relatively massive size it is at now. I mean, I realize that 3D rendering isn't After Effects' true domain, but a lot of this just doesn't make sense to me! Any insights are truely appreciated.
