Sole Camera in composition isn't "Active Camera"

Hey everyone, I've gotten tons of help from these forums over the years, but have finally run across something I can't seem to find a prior post about, at least at fits my situation.

Basically, when i used the 3D camera tracker today, I noticed that the camera it created looked kind of hollow with an outline on the timeline, as in the literal clip, second layer, has a grey, seemingly transparent fill and just a stroke around the outside, which is both new to my eyes and something I'm unable to find anything about online (probably googling the wrong terms.)
The real problem though, which is possibly just related to this, is that when I select "Active Camera" in my preview window, all my 3d stuff goes away. I have to manually set it to "3D Tracker Camera" but when I do my actual export (one composition higher, meaning the screenshot attached is from within a comp that sits in my main comp im trying to export, but no, the main comp does not have any cameras either,) no 3D layers show up."

Could not for the life of my get an image to upload here, but heres the screenshot

thanks for any help
