Can't see Motion Paths?! (with display option selected)

I can't see motion paths even though I have them selected in Display settings. I found someone else who stated turning off time stretch solves this but this has not solved the problem either. Opening project in either CS6 or CC has same issue.

In desperate need to solve this. Any suggestions?!

Thanks



If it looks good, look at it.

Do you have the layer's Position property highlighted?

Do you have Show Layer Controls enabled?

I can't tell which AE version you're running. But if you're on a Mac, and you recently changed the OS to Yosemite, you'll want to update your version. Never mind if it says you're already updated. Do it anyway.

@ Todd - Yes I have Show Layer Controls selected.

@ Dave - I am using AE CS6 with Mac OSX 10.9.5

- Ive opened up the project file WITHOUT motion paths showing within a completely differect project that DOES have a comp with motion paths showing, im not sure what this says? Its something wrong with the comp or project and not AE?

If it looks good, look at it.

I believe it may be something to do with this PSD file im using as my BG as I inserted it into a project with motion paths working and it shows as invisible, any suggestions?

All I see is a Photoshop Document with layers. I don't see an AE project.

And before you go any further, did you double-check that you're following Todd Kopriva's advice? Did you check that setting? Not that you just THINK you got the right setting, but found those precise words in AE?

Todd is, after all, Mr. After Effects -- the gent is in charge of AE for Adobe, he wants to see AE users succeed, and his words are to be taken seriously.

Sure see attached AE project file with just the null I need to show motion path with.

And yes I definitely have Show Layer Controls enabled.
