Layer Transparency Error in AE v.17.1.3

I encountered an error that affected the layer transparency within a composition.  Specifically, the layer was partially transparent (perhaps 50% opacity) so that the underlying layer could be seen.  Adjusting the Opacity controls did not fix this problem.  Deleting the layers and creating new layers did not fix it.  Switching the layer positions from top to bottom / bottom to top did not help.  Opening the Windows 10 (v.1903) project file on an OSX (v10.14.6) system did not help either.

 

Finally I found a fix:  I rolled back AE version from the current 17.1.3 version back to last year's 16.1.3 version.  This older version of AE does not exhibit this transparency bug.

 

I'm posting this here in case others encounter the same bug.
