See picture. Im trying to put the light behind the red sphere, but no matter what I do I can't get it to work. I've been fiddeling around with the controls but to no avail. What am I doing wrong?

Hi

If I've correctly understood what you want to do, then I think you'll need an Obscuration layer for the flare, which will mean pre-comping the Element layer and copying the camera across. You might want to look at the Elementary script that automates setting this up, and links the camera in the precomp so you can make changes more easily.

Another thing you can do is the follow it may do what you are looking for and is just to put the Optical Flare Layer (Light only) below the Element 3D layer that way the light will be behind the red sphere and create another layer or duplicate the Optical Flare one and put it above the Element Layer just with the rest of the parts a.k.a Flares and others flare stuff. well just a quick fix that just cross my mind.

Just incredible. I've been using graphics software for over ten years, and it didn't occur to me that I should put it on a layer beneath... Thanks though!

@David -- just curious -- was that sarcastic or were you serious?

Haha, it was in fact not sarcastic. Just me surprising myself with stupidity :)
