Hello Steve,
Under the advanced settings tab (within composition settings) I only have one render plug-in to choose from: Advanced 3D. Is this what you mean by "advanced render'?

Coincidentally, Since I updated to CS3 last week and started troubleshooting these 3D layer order issues I have run across an entirely new problem where After Effects goes into a frozen death pose citing 'Advanced 3D' as the culprit. Here's what happened in one example:

I had a stack of 20 .ai files (set to continuously rasterize AND to act as a 3D layer) seperated by 10 pixels each along the z axis. Each file is identical and has an identical mask that cuts a hole in the layer. As the camera passed through this hole an error message appeared that read:

After Effects error: crash occured while invoking plug-in "advanced 3D".

Perhaps this is an entirely different issue, but it does touch upon your thought that my render settings are off. I just don't know how to change them. From all the research I have done I can't find an alternative to this 'advanced 3D' render with CS3. Any suggestions?
