    After Effects error: layer does not have a source. ( 26 :: 335 )

      Hi all,

      I'm on a Mac, and I'm simply wanting to replace footage by using the process of selecting the layer, and then Option dragging the new footage onto the name of the layer. It worked earlier, but now in AE CS6, CC, and CC 2014:

      1- If I have a Shape Layer, the new footage being dragged causes an error "After Effects error: layer does not have a source. ( 26 :: 335 )" pictured here: http://postimg.org/image/tyh38uuu5/).

      2- If I use a graphic as the first layer, and then replace with another graphic, it doesn't replace. It just gets added as a new layer.

       

      Lots of troubleshooting already… I even went so far as to uninstall CC 2014 and then reinstall it, obviously with no luck. My Google-Fu may be weak, as I wasn't able to find a solution that way. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks in advance!

       

      Cheers!
