Firstly sorry if this is a dumb question,

I've a large composition that contains several precomps.

When I move between main composition and precomps the playhead does not 'land' in the same positon. For instance if in the main comp the playhead is a 4:00:00 and I jump to a precomp the playhead is now at 4:00:10. Its only when I select the precomp and right click open compostion that the playhead is positioned correctly. However when I go back to the main comp the playhead has changed position again.

It was working fine and landing correctly until an hour ago and now it's all over the place...

I know this must be so simple a problem but I'm just stuck.

Thanks for help.

In Preferences -- the General section, I think -- you may want to change the check box state of the Synchronize Time Of All Related Items setting.

Hi Dave and thanks.

I switched it off and it made no difference. However I just switched it back on again and now it's all working!
