I am experiencing a problem and I am having a hard time even isolating the cause, let alone figuring out a solution. I am working on an animation that I am taking from Flash to After Effects, and I am exporting different layers as SWF files to rebuild inside AE. Several times, some of the layers once imported into AE are solid red, even though they appear to work perfectly fine in Flash Player or VLC -- it's only in After Effects they are red. Reading online I saw that some people said it could be from using a PNG with an alpha (which was the case in one of the instances), but it also happened with other file types too (BMP, movie). Does any know what would be causing this error? Can I resolve it by doing something different in either Flash or AE? I know the red frame is just a general problem so it has been hard to diagnose.
Bizarrely enough, sometimes the same PSD file coming in to Flash will have some layers work and some become solid red, so again it is confusing and hard to isolate the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am using Windows 7 with Adobe CC 2015.
You're throwing ariund lots of big words without offering any solid info. Provide screenshots of the layers and timelines as well as info about layer styles and whatever. That being said, try the same in an older version of AE. Cc 2015 simply is a nightmare and mostly unusable.
Thanks for your reply. I was able to figure out the problem -- the error was happening with any layer that had a dimension above 8000 pixels. That was the commonality between all the errors, and bringing one of the layers below 8000 pixels caused it to work. If that is the case, hopefully an update can resolve the issue.
