Actually i still dont know..

I just precomposed it to parent it with the original rather then doing it one by one and told the reviewer the situation as well so its approved now..

in short the masked layer was shifted to a separate comp that takes the problem out of equation!!!

Sorry about offtopic. When you start learning 3D software package in depth, problems in after effects seem so funny :D

So you are basically telling us that you are learning 3D softwares !!!

Good Luck with that

I find that the ways of thinking really compliment one another. But I kind of find that with most activities. :-)

Good luck with the 3D. You can spend a lifetime learning that!

From the error message, I still suspect a comp or layer with a duplicate name. After Effects isn’t so dumb that it can’t find a layer again in a different version or language version, and since the path to a layer doesn’t contain any non-universal elements, that can’t be the problem.

There are two ways to reference a layer.

If you used thisComp.layer("Logo") (which is the code the pickwhipper writes if the referenced layer is in the same comp as the expression), then it means that layer Logo ceased to exists when the reviewer opened the project. Was there something in the instructions that indicated the user should do this?

If the Logo matte was in another comp and you used comp("other comp").layer("Logo") then the existence of another comp with the name “other comp” (or whatever) could cause the problem. It’s unlikely, but not impossible. If two comps have the same name, After Effects will usually select the higher item number (the most recently created). It might be possible to swap the item number somehow, while leaving both with the same name. I’m not 100% on how this works under the hood.

I’d also check whether your layer had a custom name. (i.e. Source Name and Layer Name are different and the Layer Name doesn’t show in square brackets) It’s good practice to give layers custom names, otherwise, replacing a source will change the layer name. The expressions should update automatically to reflect this change, but it’s not impossible that under certain circumstances they don’t.

Without seeing the structure, it’s very hard to say. Glad you worked it out, anyway… it seems that a slight restructuring solved it… and like I say, if you want to get to the bottom of it and learn something for the future, post a detailed synopsis on the expressions thread and I’ll do my best to get to the bottom of it.

I’d need a screenshot of the project… a screenshot of the comp / comps in question (preferably showing layer name, not source name).. and we’d need to see the expression verbatim.
