    Multiple errors when opening my project file. Please help!


      Hi Everyone,


      I'm new to the forum and I hope someone can help me with a problem I'm having with opening a specific .aep.

      My project crashed. I tried reopening it, but from then I've been getting the following error messages. While restarting my system or AE usually helps, this time the project wouldn't reopen no matter how I approached this.


      Steps I've taken so far:


      -Restarting my computer.

      -Restarting After Effects

      -Importing the .aep file into AfterEffects

      -Opening the file on a different computer.

      -Trashing preferences and reopening the Project in AfterEffects.

      -Opening one of my 5 at a 15 minute interval generated Auto-save files.


      All result in the same error.


      Please see attached images to see the error I'm getting.



      The final message can't be clicked away and when I click the exit button at the top right of the application the application crashes and prompts me with a default windows error screen.

      I really hope someone can help me with this problem. Our deadline was yesterday so any help would be much appreciated
