Hello, created a composition of shapes in After Effects and added a light. Everything works fine inside of the comp itself but when I place that composition in other composition then the light does not show.

Can anyone please advise? 

Thanks

Without more specific info we can't really tell you much, but apparently you are messing up things with collapsed transformations somewhere most likely. You need to explain better or show us screenshots.

Show us with a screenshot with the composition placed to try to see some issue. Press UU without any layer selected and show us.

If you nest a comp that has 3D layers in another comp and you collapse transformations all of the lights and cameras in the nested comp will be replaced by the lights and cameras in the main comp. The solution is to either turn off collapse transformations or add or copy lights and cameras to the main comp.

 

I hope you followed that.
