    Collect files: Workaround for file "path is too long" error?

    PeterEdits

      I know there have been threads about this in the past but has there been any progress on a workaround for the "file path is too long" error when collecting files in AE? I renamed (and re-connected) files with particularly long file names and special characters, and I collected my files to the root of my drive, which drastically shortened my file path(s). But I'm *still* encountering this problem. Please tell me there is a workaround for this. It's not efficient for me to have to rename and reconnect nearly every single file within a large AE project. I have looked into third party file path tools, such as Long Path Tool, but I'm on Mac OS and that program does not seem to be available for Mac.
