Weird issue. I have a show with 20 ish layers. In my layer 5/6 I am having an issue where the media that is in it is not showing now in that layer or on stage except when I zoom way out then I can see it but can effect it. Layer is not locked or set differently than any of my other layers. 

 

Any suggestions?

What version of WATCHOUT is used?

Big difference in the way large stills are handled between v4 (and earlier) and v5.

What is the resolutions of the missing images? file type? do the images have transparency?

Resolutions are generally 1920x1080, but sized down the designer thought we were using HD projectors. I am outputting 1024x768. File type is mostly jpg some PNG, and yes some of the images have transparency.

and yes, WATCHOUT 5 does narrow the possibilities - thanks

If some of your .png files are disappearing,

you might want to try  setting the file's Transparency specifically

instead of the default Auto Detect.

reference page 36, Chapter 3, Media in the WATCHOUT 5 User Guide

 

This is done by changes to the the Transparency setting in Image Specifications,

found in the media window, select the image file and open the  Image dialog. 

This has been known to fix some issues of disappearing images before.
