Thanks for writing in.
What happens when you Solo this layer? Do you see any shape in the Composition?
Please make sure there is some content on the Shape layer.
Let us know if that helps.
Are you absolutely sure there is a shape on that layer? The > disappears when there are no paths.
As Nishu suggests, if you solo the layer does anything show up?
What happens if you turn off the visibility of all the other layers?
Ah, you've also turned off the Sun's layer too, but I think it's likely that at some point , you've accidentally deleted the shape that was on that layer. Try importing the original project into this one and see if you can copy the shape layer from the original into your modified one.
I think so. Is the sun complex? If it's just a circle, you could draw it back on?
I do not know whether sun is complex or not because my knowledge of Ae is limited . Here is a screen shot from previous file I tried.
I can't spot a reason to move that layer, as it is not obscured by the night layer. If it's position was in the same space as the night layer it would be hidden. You say this is a tutorial, I take it you can't contact the creator to ask them?
I am waiting for the reply from creator.
