Tony KaarlasAE CS6 - Multiprocessing wont render all compositions

Hey, I tried to google about this, but didn't find anything that would really match this issue (or that I could understand of).

I've used multiprocessing always when rendering, but now suddenly it wont render this one comp inside my main composition. In RAM Preview this comp shows up correctly, as well as in composition window, but AE isn't rendering it into the output file.

This problematic comp is linked to a Null object which is following tracker data in main comp, and it is simply just an image which is re-shaped with FreeForm.
Funny thing is that I have also another pretty similar comp there, also using FreeForm and nailed to the very same Null object, and it is being rendered completely.

Ok, so it all works if I disable multiprocessing, but then this 1min 20secs main comp takes at least 10 hours to render, as with multiprocessing it took only ~2 hours.

Would you have any suggestions or ideas why this is happening or what I should try?

[Tony Kaarlas] "I've used multiprocessing always when rendering, but now suddenly it wont render this one comp inside my main composition. In RAM Preview this comp shows up correctly, as well as in composition window, but AE isn't rendering it into the output file."

To be clear, you have a layer (a comp) which simply doesn't appear if you render with multiprocessing on, but DOES appear with multiprocessing off?

And it's definitely not a guide layer?

My first guess is a disk cache problem, but that's a bit of a shot in the dark. Do you have the latest updates for CS6 installed (11.0.4 IIRC)?
