Fantastic as always, only problem.. the toComp expression gives an error saying it can't find the Point layer. Is this a bug in after effects or are we doing something wrong?

This is driving me crazy, when I use the toComp expression it gives me an error saying it can't find the Point layer or that the Point layer doesn't exist, even though I just pic whipped it. What's the deal?

Is anyone else having issue getting the expression to work? I am using the following code: .toComp([0,0,0,)];

I have tried with and without the last ",". Additionally I have tried ([0,0,0,]); however I keep getting an error

Here is my error message. After Effects Warning: ) does not have a value Expression disabled.

Thanks for the help.

I have tried to follow your video tutorial. I am trying to learn AE and I seriously cannot follow you, you move along far too fast. You click on icons and do not explain what you are doing. You should not assume that people following your tutorial just know WHERE to click... I would love to be able to show something like a light effect but this is not a tutorial that I am going to recommend.

How about you start with BASIC tutorials? This is an advanced AE tutorial. Also don't exaclty copy what is shown in the tutorial, be creative

Actually the problem with you is you don't know the basics of after effects, So first learn the basics beacause he is not going to tell about every single thing.
Hope you have got my point.

So, when I go to push the light source behind the text, it doesn't move itself behind the text. Unless I swap the layers so the Adjustment layer and light source are behind the text, they are always in front. The problem is that I don't get the effect. Why does it react differently for me? Other than that, I love the tutorials.
