Dennis GabrielTransform effect on adjustment layer - cutoff

Hi everyone,
I wanted to use the transform effect on an adjustment layer to move several 2D and 3D layers horizontally as if they are one 2D object. I know there are other ways to do this but my specific scenario requires this approach.

Mostly this works fine however if the 3D layers are outside the composition boundaries they are cutoff when moved back inside by the effect. What surprises me is that they are cutoff somewhere in between and not as I suspected completely or not at all.

Here are some tests I made:
First image shows a 2D and a 3D layer moved outside the composition exactly by half, second image shows the transform effect on an adjustment layer, the 2D video is fine the 3D is cutoff but not by half just a little bit is missing. Applying a transform effect to the 3D layer directly also works correctly.

Any help understanding and hopefully avoiding this issue is much appreciated.
