after effects error: unable to invert matrix. (17 :: 35)
I have no idea what is causing this and Google doesn't have any recent info on this. Any help would be nice since I was 99% done with a file before this ruined a day of work.
Must be a glitch
maybe an issue with one of your plugins or maybe if you have nested comps try and turn off continuous rasterization.
well a matrix of numbers is something like this:
0 / 35 / 76
23 / 0 / 7
54 / 8 / 12
used to store 3d data for example, or colour data, position data used for transformations etc.
And unable to invert could possibly mean the matrix values are all zero's. You can't invert 0's. You can invert 1 to -1

- this is cool. thanksMrT
I narrowed it down to a single layer and re-applied my setMatte effect. That fixed the issue. I'm not sure if I did anything wrong here. It's pretty scary when it happens.
- Nice... glad you sorted it out. Was about to post I've had a few errors like this where you're left checking each layer like you did - I don't think there's...PonyBoy
- ... a quicker way of finding the issue than what you did.
... and yeah - scary af when you've dumped hours / days into a project. Again—glad you figured it out!PonyBoy
