Odd. I reopened an old project, made a few simple changes, and now the animated mask I created does not render. The mask previews properly, but does not render at all. It must be a render setting, but I can't figure out which one. Ideas?? Thanx. After Effects 7.0

is it set as a - Guide Layer ?
(in the timeleine - right klick - Guide Layer)

a GL will show in the work but not in der Render.

Thanks, Stefan. I don't think AE 7.0 has guide layers in the timeline. I can switch guide layers on and off in the render queue, but it doesn't remedy.

AE SEVEN? Really? Is the project from an even earlier version?
Not that it matters, I'm just nosy.

The behavior you describe -- previewing, but not rendering -- is indicative of using Open GL to accelerate rendering. If it's on, turn it off.
But I have to tell you, I don't even remember if that was a feature in AE 7.

Thanks, Dave. You've bailed me out before.... I figured it out. I don't understand it, but I figured it out.
And no, it's not from an even earlier version. AE7 was cutting edge in it's day, but I can't keep up.
