Aep is an after effects project file extension. these look like temporary files that are saved in your AME folder once you encode in AME. these are only a reduced version of your rendered composition at the moment you sent it to AME. not you main full project file. these should open as well but look in your main directory (one hierarchy down), there you will find the AEP project that should open in After effects.
if you are experiencing anything different send more screenshots and don't crop anything
you can open a file with these options:
1.Ctrl/Cmd+O will give you the open dialog box to your explorer and you can click on the file twice
2. clicking on the project file twice will launch Ae or load the project to Ae if it's already open
it looks like that you have a folder called "Look Animation" where you have your after effects project files. click on Look.aep or Look copy (cc 13).aep and it should open in Ae.
As long as i can open them i am fine with that thank you
My pc for some reason does not recognise aep files, hence the paper icons left of the file names
I see now. yes the notorious extension problem on windows...
1. right click on the project file and open with -> choose default program. now choose After effects and make sure the check mark is there "always use the selected..."
if this does not work open start on windows and type set association, it will lead you to this. type .aep to get right there
now choose change program and see if that works for you.
if it doesn't work then it's a registry problem. you could fix that too but let's wait if that's it.
