I'm working on an AE project that has lots of placeholders for photos. After working on the project for 10 minutes, the photos disappear in the project window. Not the actual file. But the thumbnail. Also, when you double click on the photo in the project window, it just shows black where the photo should show up in the comp preview window. I already deleted cache and such. Any ideas?
Could you please share some screenshots?
What format are these photos?
What is the exact version number of AE that you're using? Is it 13.6.1 or something else?
