I have a layer in an after effects comp that won't render out. It has rendered in previous passes however I can't seem to figure out what has changed.

I basically have a comp that contains footage that is all ProRes422LT and I created a solid layer with a grid effect tweaked to look like scan lines of an old television. The line effect shows up in the preview but when I render the project out...nothing.

Guide layers are not checked. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Are the grid lines really small, and you are rendering half res?

[Rick Symonds] "Guide layers are not checked."

That's a good first place to check. If you're new to AE, know that although AE does allow you to render using Open GL acceleration, nobody uses it because it doesn't work properly. You shouldn't use it for rendering, either.

How about previewing? That's okay. Go figure.
