    After Effects error: internal verification failure, sorry! {File_DirInqFileSpecByName (unicode): bad

    TheFosterHouse Level 1

      I'm getting the following error while trying to collect files in AE CC:

      After Effects error: internal verification failure, sorry! {File_DirInqFileSpecByName (unicode): bad parameter} ( 3 :: 0 )

      It happens right when I select "Collect Files…" so I don't see the dialogue box for collect files at all.

      I'm compositing 2D animation. Source footage is QuickTime movies, ProRes 4444 with alpha and Layered PSDs.

      I've saved the project out forCS6 and the collect files works there, but not in CC.


      I narrowed it down to 4 short PNG sequences. I deleted them from the project and the collect files works, but it's strange that CS6 will work, but CC won't. These files work in every application so far, including AE, but just won't collect. Any reason for this?
