I'm having some difficulty applying a very simple glow effect to a project I'm working on. I'm trying to make a small circle have a pulsing, irregular glow to it. I can make it glow on and off once, but when i try to copy and paste the keyframes 2 seconds forward, the effect disappears at both points. It's driving me mad. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

I bet this is an easy one -- simply take a good, close look at the VALUES of those keyframes. It could easily be that the effect is keyframed at points to look like it's turned off. Double-check that you haven't inadvertantly enabled expressions, too.

On the off chance that keyframing isn't the problem, disable Open GL for both previewing and rendering. For AE beginners, it really doesn't help much, it can really screw up a lot of things.
