What OS? What's your machine's specs? Did you check that your GPU driver is up to date? Did you try restarting the machine? I see you're editing with an mp4 file, did you try turning it into prores first? What are your sequence settings? If you change your comp resolution to half or full do you see anything different?

Try opening that project in a new project (import it) and see if anything changes.

weird. What happens if you render the sequence out? Is the text in the rendered video? Can I see what's happening in those layers? highlight them and hit "u" twice.

I guess there could be a chance you're missing a codec, but that's unlikely with h264... I bet making it an edit friendly codec like prores would help.

Hmm, I'm not seeing any rogue opacity mistakes. I would render and see what happens, then try importing that project into another, then try making a prores version of the drone shot. After that, my best guess would be uninstlall and reinstall after effects. 

 

Also, check out this issue from 2018:

His solve was increasing the color depth in the project settings (file>project settings).
