Shatter Doesn't Reflect Source Layer Changes

I've animated a Shape layer and want it to look 3D by using the Shatter 3D text trick, but for some reason Shatter doesn't show the Shape layer animations; it only shows the first frame of the composition.

The same is true for animated text; Shatter won't display the changes between keyframes that I make to the source text (i.e. words spelling themselves out). Is there a way I can change this?

[Cole Christine] "Shatter doesn't show the Shape layer animations; it only shows the first frame of the composition."

This is a limitation of the Shatter effect. Shatter only invokes the first frame of the Custom Shatter Map's shape characteristics .
