Hello,

I've been putting together a comp and I'm pleased with how it currently looks.

When I go to Export my comp, I notice that any layer that has any custom Blending Mode (aside from normal) seems not to render altogether.

I've never encountered this sort of a problem before.

I mainly use Photoshop CS6 so I've been working in a similar way. Could this be the cause?!

Here is a video of my processes. Excuse the distractions, I've never done a screen capture before.

James, it looks like you've set your "Background.psd" layers (5, 7, 12) as Guide layers [link].

A guide layer is visible in the comp viewer (for the active comp), but will not appear when precomped or rendered.

Walter,

That worked an absolute treat. I just wonder how I managed to set it as a guide layer.
I really appreciate the help!

James
