HI - I am new to AE. I have a simple composition like this, which has a precomposition within it (called pendulum)

maxelcat_0-1626516657113.png

 

Ppendulum displays and works fine when I click on it to open up its layers

maxelcat_1-1626516708020.png

At first I used to be able to preview and see both animations together - which is what I want,

Now when I preview I only see the first one - I cannot make the pendulum precomp appear.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong - guess its a silly

Thanks

Since not even the "selected" bounding box is visible in your screenshot, your layer is somewhere far off the actual comp canvas most likely, a.k.a. known as outer space.  Start by revealing the position property and reset its values. Also you may have inadvertently created a mask that clips out your stuff, so check that, too. Mylenium
