Hi all

I'm using a cloud preset in my background and it animates during scrub but not during render. Can anyone help?

Is the preset set to be a guide layer? Can you take upload a screen shot of your timeline?

I'm not sure about what a guideline layer is, but I'm uploading an image of my timeline, although I don't see it. Apologies but I am new to the forum

No worries about being new. Use the third to last icon to upload a picture. After you upload it, it should appear in a column on the right side of the window, click on it and you should appear in the box on the left with and "Embed" code. Copy and paste the embed code into your reply.

From adobe help site:
Guide layers are standard layers with special status. A guide layer appears in the current composition but not in any subsequent compositions or the final render (unless it is specifically overridden in Render Settings.) You can use this for

foreground reference clips (picture-in-picture timing reference, aspect ratio crop reference)
temporary backgrounds to check edges when creating a matte
text notes to yourself
adjustment layers that are used only to check images (described further in the next chapter); a layer can be both an adjustment and a guide layer
Any image layer can be converted to a guide layer either by context-clicking it or by choosing Guide Layer from the Layer menu. (Figure 4.12).
