I have a few layers that are texts and images. However, they are invisible on the screen. Not sure why. I did not have them as guide layers or hide them. But when I pre-compose these layers as one comp, they appear on stage. But when I go into that composition, it is invisible again. Not sure what is happening. I know it's not the text sizing issues since the image layer is invisible as well.

Suggestions would be helpful.

Check and see if in the invisible comp, you are looking at an active camera or front view, and not top or side. Another gotcha can occur when you accidentally push the "Area of Interest" button next the resolution pulldown.

If either of those aren't the issue post a screen grab of the comp and perhaps we can figure it out.

Thanks for the quick reply. No luck. I have attached a screenshot. Please let me know what I accidentally did.

you are looking through the front view... only 3d layers will appear. Change "front" to "default camera" or switch layer 3 to 3d.

Thanks Cassius!

I would've never known that. I couldn't find the answers elsewhere either.
