I’ve seen this error posted about a couple of times, but none of the solutions are working for me…
I’m working in AE with some shape layers parented to nulls, parented to other nulls etc etc. I keep getting the following errors, not only when rendering, but also when working…
Cannot normalise zero-vector (17::52)
Unable to invert matrix (17::45)
It seems to happen when I switch to full quality preview, and then obviously when I render. Happening on a mac pro and macbook pro, latest CC and CS6.
I can only pin it down to parenting to shape layers. If I precomp the layer and don’t collapse the transformations, it’s ok, but that’s not really a solution as I need to use shape layers, and already built a load of stuff at quarter quality that would be a real pain to go back and convert to non-rastered shapes.
OK, now it’s happening when I try to rotate a null that stuff’s parented to. I’ll just resign myself to never parenting anything to anything until the next update. *update* – think I just hadn’t scaled some bits to 0.1…ignore my ramblings.
