Riot Gear Help

Hi,
I'm pretty new to AE and am recreating Andrew Kramers "Red" tutorial from the Riot Gear collection.
All is good but I modified the text at the end which is revealed using "Reveal 03.mov".
Under the Layer styles for the text I added a drop shadow and a Bevel & Emboss, now the text does not reveal but is instead there all of the time. Anyway I can get it back as was to reveal with my edits in place?
Thanks
Derm

Try precomping the text with the bevel and shadow and then doing the reveal effect... it might be helpful to post the project file too...
