    replace missing layer dependancies and constituent parts

    snorpthus Level 1

      How do I replace missing layer dependancies and constituent parts in After Effects?  I stupidly renamed and reorganized a few file folders in finder and can't remember what they were called before!  What is anyone's best workaround/workflow for when this happens?

       

      What happened is: I imported a multi-layered PSD file into after effects "as a composition".  Sometime last night, I must have changed the name of one of the folders while on my Mac's Finder app within the area where I keep my project, and it caused my project to lose track of the individual LAYERS within my imported composition.  Am I explaining this well enough?

       

      I definitely know how to replace lost footage or files, so long as they are not in COMP format.  Anyone's suggestions are GREATLY appreciated!
