Re-Linking After Effects CS5 files

Jul 20, 2013 3:43 PM

I moved an After Effects project file and now it is not linked with several of the files within the project.  I tried using the "create proxy" "replace proxy" and "replace footage" but in all cases, the file is imported with the name of the file on the stage and appears to be unusable.  What is the proper way to re-link files so that they actually work.

Thanks in advance

    Select the footage you want to replace in the Project Panel, right click, select Replace Footage.


    That's all there is to it.

    Prior to moving to the new machine, did you run the Collect Files command to put all the footage in a single place in preparation to move it to the new machine?  If not, give it a shot.
