Obstruction layer not working
I don’t understand why, but the Obstruction layer is doing nothing. I setup a simple comp with a 3000x3000x3000 box emitter. I added a camera, and created a 3D solid. I set the solid layer to be the Obstruction layer in the Z buffer. It doesn’t seem to do anything no matter where it is placed or how big I make it. Am I missing something?
EDIT: After quitting and restarting AE, I notice that the obstruction layer is blocking some particles, however it is only using a small quadrant in the upper left of the obstruction layer instead of the entire layer. Please See this screenshot.
Hi, The obstruction layer is limited to 2D particles at the moment, and it has a known issue when previewing in lower res – (Half, Quarter , etc’ ), please use Full res . Both will will be addressed soon. For further help please send an email to support.
Hi! I have a similar problem. I created a spin around a layer but the obstruction layer is not working. This is the After Effects Project.
I have been told that there is a bug that manifests when you are at a lower resolution than the native composition. If you view at full resolution it’s fine, but if you view at lower resolutions the obstruction layer doesn’t scale properly. I have been told it will be fixed soon.
