Having issues with one particular AE file. Trying to collect files for archiving purposes but nothing happens when I click on "Collect files". Sometimes it says document needs to be saved first, which it does and then nothing happens. No dialogue box, no error message. Checked with another AE file and it worked fine. Tried importing the problem file into a new AE file and same issue occurred.
AE CC 2014.0
Anyone else seen this?
WHat effects? What comps? What footage? You need to be more specific. Most of the time this happens eith certain effects that use specific licensing schemes and interfere with the process, but could just as well be a comp or footage with an odd name...
The file has about 30 comps, with a huge variety of effects. It would take me longer to go through and work out what effects are in the comp than it would to go find the footage and images manually. Would have only used effects that come standard with AE. It's interesting that applied effects have an impact on finding footage files and copying them. I would have thought this process independent of the comps all together, but I guess software works in mysterious ways...
Footage looks like:
Sony XDCAM HD422 in MXF
AVCHD in MTS
Avid DNxHD 185 in Quicktime
What kind of footage or comp names would typically cause problems?
