I've searched here and on youtube and can find no solution although I found others having this problem. When I create a light in AE I get nothing. Everything is 3D, the material options are right, but there is nothing. Can anyone help?
Here is the link for my screenshot. I'm pretty new to uploading so please forgive if it doesn't work right.
I have a photo as the background and several objects moving onto the screen. Everything is 3D. The objects have a slight extrude, 2 to 4, and I am trying to fly in with a Y axis rotation. I added a light to show the dimensions. A spot light. The materials of all the objects are correct, accept light, don't emit light, accept shadows. But the light does nothing. I've changed its properties, moved it around, nothing. This is not the first time I've tried the light and I got nothing every time. The others were just for experiment, this one is for real.
