Nothing shows up in composition window
on Apr 22, 2010 at 11:33:55 pm

For some reason I can't drag footage and/or an Effects Preset (background) into the composition window. When I do this, only a black screen appears (although the clip appears in the Project window and the Timeline). When I play the timeline, the Comp Window just shows black (however the wireframe "X" appears as though there is a clip). I checked the Mute button ("eye"). Are there any other "mute" functions that might be preventing the clip from being seen in the Comp Window? Or some command that I accidentally engaged?

I've done this before with no problems. Not sure what I'm missing.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Ray,

Could be that you've accidentally set your FAST PREVIEW (at the bottom of your comp window) to wireframe.

Hope this helps.
