I am new to the CC but have played with Adobe in earlier versions (mostly CS3). I have purchased some project files from videoden to give me a starting point (I learn best when playing with something that already works, picking it apart and rebuilding). Only problem is, the text is never visible when I work.
When I open the project it says: "the project must be converted from version 9.0 (windows). The original file will remain unchanged" There are no font dependency issues reported. When I open a text layer I can see a rectangle, but not the letters. I read on the forum that the cache can cause problems. I emptied it, rebooted and started over, still same problem.
So it is the project that is corrupt, right? Wrong. Even when I make my own, add Arial (or some generic font like that all systems have) it wont show up on screen either. And even the project I was having problems with, when I render it the fonts appear properly.
Is there some view that does not show fonts in text areas?
I am running 8gm ram, win 7, Lenovo, with After Effects CC
