Hi there

Having a problem recalling the answer to this problem I'm in again.

I have 4 instances of the same precomp in my comp. The only difference between them is that I've shortened & offset some of the the layers to create a complex animation (large technical diagram of servers passing info to each other, etc). All the Instances have collapse transformation on as they get blurry when I size them correctly & collapsing sharpens them back up

The comp with these 4 instances is then put into my main comp and then animated to move & scale in, but I'm getting odd motion blur on the instance in the top left for some reason, when they come to rest. It's like its got a different shutter phase to the others and theres an odd jarring. Thing is they're all the same precomp with the same source.

I do see a difference in the timeline switch icons when I compare it to the others. They're all collapsed but it's the only one with a dash through the quality and motion blur switches but I cant see a reason for this as it is the same instance as the other 3. It hasn't got any effects on it to make it different. Inside the instance all motion blur & max quality switches are on (none are collapsed).

Why am I getting a different result when I collapse the top left instance, since its the same as the other 3 I have ?

This sounds like an extremely complicated project. Is it possible to prerender some of these nested compositions to simplify it?

Hmm, maybe I'm going into too much detail.

Perhaps my question should be - what causes those dashes in the quality and motion blur switches when you collapse a pre-comp? Sometimes I get them, sometimes I don't. Can't recall/ find why.

Yes I probably should pre-render anyhow. Thanks for that.
