Love this tutorial. How can I place another "Comp" into 3d space within the projection. I made a 3d projection of a hallway in a castle. I've got a comp of "Lady Bess of Hardwick" materializing. I would like to place her part way up the hallway. whenever I turn on the 3d space, she disappears no matter where I place her "Z" space.

Very amazing tutorial. I wonder if you have any tips on using this technique with an image that is not shot from the center (ex. http://wallpapershd2014.com/Wallpapers-11/imagepages/image322.htm or google this abstract-background-1920x1200-1004002)?

I want to add lights to my environment. Except the lights won't be enabled due to the wireframes material options being tweaked. How can I add light for compositing purposes?

I have tried this tut several times and keep running into the same problem. I'm wondering if this is a CS6 change? When I get to the step to turn on the projected layer, turn off the Reference layer and grid fx, (6:20) all I see is the transparent checkerboard art board.

I have referenced the first "3d Projection" tut and the "Submerged" tut without any success. Also I though the image might be to close or far from the camera and still no success. Every other tut I have done is GREAT! Help?
