I"m having an issue where in some frames, a random line is appearring in an ellipse shape as it is being animated. I'm adding pictures of the frame before, the problem frame, and the one that follows to help show what it looks like and hopefully provide some insight. If anyone has any clue why this is happening or how to fix it, I'd be quite grateful.

There are slight changes to the dimensions and position of the ellipse across all three photos, but no reason as far as I am aware for this issue to occur.

If you are animating a Shape, show us what you have done in the Modifiers you are probably using, select the layer and press the U key twice (UU). Do not cut anything please, take a full screenshot of your screen with After Effects open so that the composition and especially the timeline can be seen in the Layer.

Here is a screenshot of the full workspace, on the frame with the issue. Please let me know if there's anything else you need that could be helpful. Thanks!

Start by deleting the Gradient Fill. Even with opacity set to 0, it could be causing problems. Any layer that is using trim paths to animate a stroke should not have any fill at all, ever.

 

If you need a fill, duplicate the object in the Shape layer, remove the stroke, and add your fill.

There is something going on in the shape layer that I cannot see. Try starting fresh, or take a look at this comp. Download it and give it a try.

 Everything is shown in the screenshot.
