I'm wondering if anyone can shed any light on an issue I have when previewing my animation.

I have used a radial wipe effect on a number of circles to reveal a target graphic and the radial wipe reveals each layer one after the other. This is revealed underneath another circle I have which also uses a radial wipe to reveal this particular circle. The animations work as I want it to when previewing at half quality but when I preview at full quality, I get this annoying issue where the whole of the target graphic appears underneath the other circle first then disappears before it animates as it should revealing the target graphic.

I hope this makes sense. Can anyone please help? Its weird as it previews it differently on each setting

Many thanks

Thanks for the response. All sorted now. Think problem was with nesting comps!

It's a strange issue indeed. Are you working with 3D layers? If so, set each layer slightly apart in z-space by 1 (or less) pixel. There are obvious issues when AE has to render layers that share the space XYZ space. If this doesn't solve the issue then I suggest that you post the AEP here so that folks can take a look at the comp.

Thanks for your reply RoRk. I seem to have sorted it now. I think it was something to do with nested comps causing issues. I still havent got my head around the issues this causes with collapsed transformations etc!

All the best
