Jumping / Flickering 2d Layers in AE

Hi All!

It's been a while, but I've got a question / problem.

I'm working on a 2D animations, everything went allright untill I rendered it out. Though I have seen this prolem before, now I can't seem to solve it.

Have a look at these screenshots / video example:

See the jumping? The mouths and eyes are all over the place. I'm working with Illustrator AI files which have the collapse switch on. The eye / mouths have their own comps (in which I have frames for closed / left / right / open eyes.).

Then in the main scenes I put the body toghether, so I'm putting the eyes / mouths comps in there, again with the collapse transformation switch on. This is necessary, as I am zooming in sometimes.

All layers are 2D and zooming is done, by scaling the layers. The other bodyparts don't seem to flicker on or of / jump. But these are nested / collapse comps as well.....

I already tried to turn of OpenGL, doesn't work. Any ideas????

Help is greatly appreciated!

Damn that was easy actually......

I nested the Scene Comps into one big Scene Montage composition. And I didn't turn on the collapse transformation switch for the scene layers (as I wasn't scaling them to more or less than 100%) I thought it wasn't necessary.....

Turning the collapse transformation switches on just made it work!
