Editing with Ae CC18 and the view ohas gone black. It seems to only be on the certain composition (which just so happens to be the main composition.) and when u preview i can still see everything. I only see black when im not previewing and scrolling through the timeline. Attached is 2 screenshots, The black screen one is the main composition and the full color one is just to show that its a problem that persists in only that composition. When the problem started I was using the shortcut Ctrl + Alt + T to put time remap on a clip and i believe i misclicked or somehow hit something completely different than T. Thanks in advance!

I figured it out. For some VERY strange reason Ctrl + Alt + 4 and 5 toggles the black screen on and off with 4 turning the screen off and 5 turning it on. No clue what that is for, but at least I dont have to deal with it anymore.
