I'm wondering if anybody out there can explain what it means when the iris of the "eyeball" of a layer's video switch is filled. I brought a .PSD into AE CS5 as a comp and some of the layers have that "zombie eyeball" instead of the normal eyeball and I can't find any documentation online about it. Just a curiosity thing...

I believe it happens when it has certain blending modes, or is used as a track matte.

Jason's close. It shows that a blending mode, Preserve Underlying Transparency switch, and/or track matte is used by the layer.
