I have a problem on my machine with (I guess) layer style on 3D layers.

Let's say I have a HD comp with a few elements in 3d space. One of them is some trees in a rasterized precomp (I need the rasterize because the layers inside the precomp are in 3d space and the camera is in the main comp).

So inside the precomp of the trees, the trees themselves have some layers styles (gradient overlay, pattern, etc). When I render the main comp, the trees are starting to blink. Why? And it doing this only on my machine. There is another mac where I work and it's rendering fine.

The two mac are identical: intel, 8core, 8gigs of ram and the server is feeding the two mac with a gigabit switch.

In the same way, sometimes I have some frames that are replaced by color bars. I saw some post on that but the answers were not that clear. Can you help me? :)

Check the Open GL setting for both Rendering and RAM Preview on both machines. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Open GL is off on the machine where the layers are NOT blinking.
