Cs6/CC, Mac.
I have Main Comp and Inner Comp in it.
In second there are some solids and lights.
When i look at preview in Inner Comp, i see effect that lights provide, but when i go to Main Comp, i see Inner Comp's content like i have set no lights up.
In Main Comp 3d and transformation collapse triggers are enabled for InnerComp.

Is there a way to get the effect of my lights to Inner Comp content in Main Comp without putting them right into Main Comp?

No, lights don't travel forward. You could copy the lights in the precomp and paste them in the final. Then pickwhip the properties you might adjust from the final to the precomp, so if you adjust the lights they will update in the final.

Yeah, thanks, i am using it in other project)

But in this project i dont neet lights to work on Main Comp. just to Inner one.

I just want to keep both 3d and lights of Inner Comp.
When Collapse Transformations are checked, i have 3d.
When Collapse Transformations are unchecked, i have lights.

Is there a way to keep both 3d and lights?

And i need a real 3d, not an immitation, because one of things that i need to do next is positioning layers of Main Comp between layers of Ineer Comp.
