Hi there!
I just started to work with AFX and so far so good. One thing I couldn't get to work was applying two presets to one image.

I want to use the movement transition preset "zoom bubble" for getting a picture on the stage and then I reverse the preset to make it disappear.

Somehow only one preset (the first one that makes the picture visible) works. If I delete the first preset the second one that makes the picture disappear works as well but I can not get both to work at the same time.

Any advice with this would be awesome!
Best regards,
Jay

Does this preset contain keyframes only, or are there expressions involved?

Presets are just that; presets. They apply effects and keyframes to achieve a result. Check out what effects it has applied and see how it's doing what it's doing.
I don't know the preset of which you speak (I don't use presets much and my AE machine is currently rendering so I can't check), but if you press u to reveal the keyframes on the layer, copy them, paste them later, and reverse the copied ones, you may have your result.

Unless, like Dave mentioned, expressions are involved...
