This is so ...why is after-effects so difficult?

So here's my issue, I have a 3d camera tracker looking at another precomp animation(a). I then precomposed the 3d camera along the pre-comp (a) into another pre-comp (camera track 1). When I import pre-comp (camera track 1) into my main comp (fresh start), all other layers/assets that I create are still tracking the 3d camera from the first pre-comp. Wth is going on? tried searching everything and everywhere. Please help out !!

Refer to the attached image for name references.

You have the Collapse Transformations switch enabled on your pre-comps (the starburst icon to the right of your comp names). This is going to treat your comp as if the individual layers are accessible, even though they're pre-comped. Disable this switch and your pre-comp will act like a flat layer.
