Entering the world of After Effects and have had this happen a few times. When reopening files with live fonts involved, the words/fonts get all messed up and aren't showing what was typed in the first place. When playing back the job, it will show some of the word correctly and then a random jumble of letters.
I have to go to each text box and re-type the messed up words.
Running After Effects CC 2014, Suitcase Fusion 6 and Yosemite system on a Mac Pro.
Any ideas what's causing it? Can't seem to find an answer.
Try purging the cache (Edit > Purge > All Memory & Disk Cache).
Brilliant! That worked. Thanks very much!
