I have an Illustrator file loaded as a Composition into After Effects with around 50 layers. I have animated them and have made updates to some layers by replacing footage for specific layer. After working on file for days, made final change and imported layer, now I see that around 15 layers have shifted their position (layers that I haven't worked on recently).
I have had this problem in the past but in this file I was careful:
-not to rename layers
-not to import newly created layers that I didn't have in it originally
-and I haven't deleted any layers.
Do have any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong. Thank you.
The illustrator elements actually moved in the composition, but not in the layer that I just imported. I hadn't created a new render yet, and although I wasn't aware of not using the Open GL it isn't checked when I add to Render Queue.
The only thing I can think of is that late in the project I moved a couple layers up or down within the layers listing in the comp window. But this was hours prior to the final edit when I noticed the problem.
I am trying to learn the basic "Do Not Do list" after I import an Illustrator file, assuming this is my problem. One project I did had problems after I quit it and opened the next day.
Thank you for listening.
