I’m thinking this is an AE issue, but maybe you’ve seen this behavior before.
I’m using Templater 2.9.5 bot to render out a comp made up of 32 layers of sequential comps. My source data determines which layers to turn on or off by swapping in a specific comp with a video layer, or a 2 frame, high framerate, blank comp. This works well in other projects I’ve setup. The current one is not. When I click on Render in the Templater panel, there is a lengthy - sometimes more than 20 seconds before the video begins rendering. Other templates I’ve created take 5 - 10 seconds to start rendering. The end result is a video that appears to just be one comp’s video, with all audio tracks from the other comps meshed together. Seems as if instead of stringing together all of the comps on the timeline sequentially, the final out put has layered them one on top of the other. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot?
Thanks for any help!
