Greetings,
I have a dungeon that I have created where I pass through the door of the room. On each side of the door is a candle, and inside the room there are 4 candles (2 on each wall, left and right). I have spot lights shooting behind the candles with a wiggle command giving the effect that they are burning. I also have an ambient light turned down a bit. this entire room is in its own comp I have called 'Room' and is 3D. I have a comp called 'AAMain' where I am putting together the entire project.
So here is my problem. When I put the 'room' comp into 'AAMain' it becomes like a 2D. All the lights work but as I move the camera in I am not moving into the room. I have the 3D box selected for 'room' in 'AAmain'. If I select the continuous rasterize switch I can zoom into the room but the lights stop working. I know I am missing something but I cannot figured out what. Please Help.

You have to collapse transformations (the continuous rasterize switch) and then move the lights from the 'room' comp to the 'AAMain' comp.

I will give it a try. I am leaving the house for a while I will respond back when I get a chance to try it.

If it's just a matter of "too many layers in the timeline window", I would recommend copying all layers from the 3d room comp and pasting them in the main comp, checking the "shy" switch on them and the the icon on top- this way they will be hidden and you can avoid all 3d issues.
