I'm an AE newbie (literally got it 3 days ago) and i've hit a roadblock in my first project (following along with an andrew kramer tutorial). Now i know this is gonna be really simple to you guys and ill feel like an idiot afterwards but i cant get 3D Text to show up. I put the text on and when i click the 3d button it dissappears. I can see a box for it sometimes and i can see it through the top camera but i cant actually see the text.
Don't be down on yourself- you've not only posted your first on the Cow but you also gave an answer- even if it is to your own problem. Not expecting a quick fix from others and continuing to work it out on your own will help you get better at it with time.
Welcome to the world of AE! It can be confusing, especially when you're first starting out, but you seem to be well on your way with figuring out stuff on your own.
Starting off with a good foundation will help you avoid frustration in the future. Go here for some (free!) resources specially compiled for beginners like you.
