    Made the mistake of not saving work in after effects, now I lost everything...

      I have spent hours on this beautiful memorial day working on a project in after effects. After about five hours of work, I added the project to the render que so I could export it to a mov file. However, I made the mistake of exporting it in the wrong file (I believe). After the video was done rendering, I closed out of after effects without saving my project. When I went to play back what I had just finished rendering in VLC player, just a black screen with no audio plays for the duration of the composition (1 min 30 seconds). All I want to do is figure out how to get the project back open in after effects so I can render it again in the right file type. I don't think I have auto save on because when I search the PC for the after effects project, nothing comes up.

       

      Please help,

      Nick
