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.
Used source footage:
XDCAM files in a .xmf container
I really hope someone can help me with this problem. Our deadline was yesterday so any help would be much appreciated
Thanks in advance,
Some information about my system:
After Effects CC (version 12.0) with all recent updates from the cloud as of 21th of august
Windows 7 Professional
Service Pack 1
Dell Precision T3500
Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU W3550 @ 3.07Ghz 3.07Ghz
8 GB RAM
64-bit operating system
Wacom Intuos 4 large pen tablet
Flush the media cache and disk cache. They probably got corrupted.
Solved!! I moved the two plug-ins that were giving me an error and tried to reopen the project. This time I could reopen it.
Saving the file under a different name now worked and I could continue working on the project. However the composition containing the rotoscoped footage got lost in the process. I just redid this part and rendered the rotoscoped footage as a separate RGBA quicktime to prevent the same thing from happening.
So happy 50 hours of work were still alive
Hope this helps anyone experiencing the same problem.
I've found a way around the problem. I'll let you know if your solution also works.
