I packaged a project I'm working on from my desktop machine running 16.1.3 to work on while out of town on my laptop running the latest version of AE. On my desktop the file appears correctly, but on my laptop, it appears (and renders) much lighter. Screenshots attached.
This is super frustrating, as there are no changes I can find between the two except for the AE version. I installed 17.0 (the oldest version available on CC) on my laptop as a temporary workaround, and it works there, but I would like to know what the actual problem is as this project will be a template and rendered by multiple people across a couple of machines.
There are no third party plugins, so I would be happy to provide the project file if anyone would like.
