After Effects project effects don't show in RAM preview

Hello awesomely creative people of the CC community,


I'm new on here. So I have this thing in After Effects where, all of a sudden, none of my effects will show in the RAM preview of the comp. There's also a couple of masks involved and a whole lot of motion blur and warp stabilizers as well. It's 3D-enabled and I've got a camera on top of all of it. Now in the preview are I just get a light purple upright rectangle, which, I've realized, is part of the camera layer. But even if I turn off the camera, the effects don't show.

They do, however, render in the final output file.

Any ideas, guys?

Is your comp viewer panel set to Active Camera?

If you are viewing one of the orthographic views (top, left, etc) or a custom view, the viewer will not match the render. AE always renders the active camera.

My God! Now I feel like a doofus. That most certainly did it. Thanks, Walter.
