I'm missing some source footage, and it can take a *very* long time to do a find file on the server I'm connected to.
Is there any way to see the original path of missing footage? I figure I could do some dectective work backtracking folders if I knew where After Effects is looking for these files.
Generally it's not the best idea to work with footage from a slow server. Also a path to the folder where the file was won't help you either. If it was still there, AE should find it and it wouldn't be missing, right?
Expand your Project panel with tilde key and you'll see the File Path column (field).
