Hello,

 

So I'm animating a character with expression controls on a guide layer in a composition. So far so good, animation looks alright. But when I nest this animated composition into another one, the animation is not happening/showing up. Is there anything I have to enable in my main comp? I'm going crazy not knowing why this is happening.

Answered my own question, lol. My controllers were set as guide layers, which only render in the original composition. This is why the animation wasn't showing in nested comps. Just talking to myself in case someone has the same issue.

Not sure how to edit my original post, so here's an additional detail: anytime I turn a layer on or off, that will show in the main composition, for some reason. The animation that I do in the precomp does not show up.

Thank you for coming back and posting the resolution.  You've probably saved someone in the future struggling with the same issue.  At least it's a new thing for them to check.
