I have a weird keyframe problem.I have a precomp with a animation of a typewriter cursor animated to reveal a text everyting is fine in the precomp, i used hold keyframe to not have interpolation.But in the main comp the cursor is not in the same place as in the precomp, the place where the cursor is dont even exist in the animation!!!

Here 2 screencap of the 2 comp
the precomp, where is in the right place.



And in the main comp where is not at the right place

Do both the precomp and the main comp have precisely the same pixel aspect ratio, plus horizontal and vertical resolution? You must do that.

Yes everything is the same, par, framerate, size square pix progressive..etc

The weird thing is that the weird keyframe just dont exist!!! Is also on a key frame, sometime when you strecht keyframe they end on "between frame" but is not the case here.

I don't know if you even need a precomp.

I guess you are revealing the text by using a track matte, which you animate with hold keyframes. You can parent the cursor to the track matte, and animate only one thing.
