Problem with 3D layers
on Feb 1, 2012 at 1:11:05 pm

Can anyone explain why, when I check the 3D layer box on one layer in a comp, all the other layers (above and below) become invisible? This problem is driving me mad as I can't see what I've done. I've used 3D layers with no problem previously.

Many thanks.

Is it possible that they're all in the same position in Z space, so the 3D layer is blocking the others? Are the other layers 3D as well? What version of After Effects are you using?

Hi Joe, thanks for responding. Not all the layers are 3D and I'm using CS5.5.

Screenshots of your timeline and comp window might be useful.

Make sure that your Composition Viewer is set to "Active Camera" and not "Custom View" or "Front" or one of the other alternate viewing angles.

Yep, the view is definitely Active Camera.

Will do a screen shot and post it

Thanks for your input

It does look like you're in Front View.

You're right! I'd checked it and I was in active camera but it must have got switched accidentally! How silly but thanks for your help.

Roland is right; that definitely doesn't say "Active Camera".
