Did you rename the folder it was in?
the thing is - i opened a new file and imported that one and saved on desktop...and still cant re open it again with new save.
Let me make sure I understand.
You can open a file by double-clicking a project file.
You can open a file by choosing File>Open.
You can't open a file by going to the recently open projects.
Is that what's happening?
If so, give us as much info as you can such as version number of AE (down to the last decimal), OS, computer specs, etc.
32 Gb RAM
Inno3d 2 Mb 650 ti card
After i double click on file - i get same whats on that screen ( file dont exist)
however , i if i open new project ( which i did ) and import the file and save again , it comes back to same thing ( File doesn't exist)
The only way i can open it is open new project >> FILe >> OPEN PROJECT and open it. i can save it , but i can't re open it later again by just double clicking.
I tried to ope all other projects i have and they open just fine.
What is your version number of After Effects? Is it 12.0.1? 18.104.22.168? 13.0.0?
What operating system are you running? Windows 7? Windows 8? Windows 8.1? Mac OSX 10.0.8?
this is only problem with this project by looks of it, so cant be my system settings or whatever... has to be something within AE
It sounds like your file associations are not set up correctly. Do you know how to reset them?
Update! You are several bug fixes behind.
You should be running 22.214.171.124 if you're going to use version 12.
However, you could also try version 13 which is the latest version.
it says all my software up to date.....but why is it only this project file cant be properly opened....i just created other project file and saved it and opened it with no problems...that i cant and all auto saves i cant...
found the issue....o boy... cant believe this is what it was....this is the name i had : project-trailer <<< "-" not allowed i guess ))
I have a similar problem, I can't open the file cause Ae says it doesn't exist, however, when I just open Ae, and then select the recent project I worked on, it opens fine :/ weird.
Win7 Home Premium, service pack 1
I've gone into updates on Ae, and it says I am up to date, though I am running CS 5.5
