Layers move when I precompose
on Mar 31, 2019 at 5:59:36 pm



When I use a Texture in Alpha it gets transparent, and I read that the solution to that is pre-composing the layers. So, I do that and the problem that appears is the following:



The layer moves from its position.

Can someone tell me why?

Thank you very much ♥

Looking at the second screen shot, I wonder why a layer called "Paper TEXTURE" would be beneath a layer called "Paper".

I say just straighten thing out in the pre comp and you'll be fine.

The Paper texture is the texture of the layer Paper, and is with Alpha Matte.

I say just straighten thing out in the pre comp and you'll be fine.

Do you I should move the layer in the pre-comp to its original position?

Probably, cause Paper was parented to smth called Hand_L, which was not included to pre-comp, so Paper's position switched to whatever. You would probably want to unparent it before pre-composing.
