Loss of z-space when pre-composing layers
on Oct 26, 2010 at 8:38:27 pm

Hello,

I'm don't understand this "Collapse Transformations-effect".

I made a short presentation, , if You look at the "egg rain" (begins at 07:00) it's flat. When I animated the "egg rain" I put the eggs out in Z-space. Then i pre-composed the layers and put that "pre-composed egg rain composition" in to another composition, and I lost my Z-space/3D-space.

I read about the Collapse Transformation-function, I must confess that I didn't get it...

What should I do to avoid the loss of Z-space when using pre-compose layers in other composition?

English is not my mother tongue, so when explanation get this complex I don't understand too much after awhile..

I'm currently working on a project that would get devastating criticism if this happened.

Happy for answers!

Colapse Transformations is a Checkbox on your timeline.

Right after the name of the layer there´s a little guy (to shy the layer) and right past him there´s the Collapse Transformation Switch.

Click on it and your problems should go away for what I understood from your post.



Hope it helps. Now if you want to really understand everything about it AE's Help is a great place to start.

Cheers.

When Adriano referred you to After Effects Help, I think that he may have meant this specific page.
