    After Effects error: invalid filter (25::3)

    tlapse Community Member

      Someone reported this error when using my plug-in on a Mac. It works fine on my Mac and on many others, but reports this error on his system. My globalsetup code gets called and works fine, but AE reports this error.

      Any ideas?

            This error has to do with the code that calls PF_Cmd_SEQUENCE_SETUP.  Is your effect returning normally from that command on the user's system?

              I normally return PF_Err_None, but if PF_NEW_HANDLE or PF_LOCK_HANDLE fail, I return PF_Err_INTERNAL_STRUCT_DAMAGED.

              Is 25::3 from  PF_Err_INTERNAL_STRUCT_DAMAGED?
