I made a project in after effect and it has alot of pictures. I'd like to delete the pictures from my project folder but when i do the pictures are deleted in the after effects project. Is there a way i can embed the pictures so i can delete them from my folder????
(I'm fairly new to after effects so i'm not sure of any way to do this)
In the project file, After Effects only stores links to source items; it does not embed the source items themselves into the project file.
So i need to always have those pictures in my project folder? If i zip the folder will it keep the project the same?
Your AE project contains no footage, only links. Move the footage or change the folder name and you will have to re-link all of your sources. Understanding file management and having a good system set up is critical to working with any kind of video project.
AE has a collect files feature that you can use to conveniently package all assets and your project file in a folder of it's own.
