So today I went to edit and noticed in my 'recent projects' screen at the start my project wasn't there.
So naturally I went into my external SSD and loaded up the most recent saved project.
I hit locate and everything went well from there. Then I load up the project and begin to scrub through the sequence
And I come across this
The issue here is I go to 'link missing file' and it just results in this coming back. I don't get it. Everything was fine last night when I was working on this.
Any ideas? Please help as this is due very soon.
If you open After Effects, and go to file > recent project, do you see your AE project ?
In the screenshot, it looks like your AE project is called "untitled project", are you sure you've saved it (as untilitled proect is the default name of AE non saved projects)
Yup, I see the projects.
I don't normally spend much time naming them as I have so many compositions and usually just rush past that part.
Interestingly some of them are under "Untitled 1" when my harddrive is actually named "Untitled" not sure if that has anything to do with it.
So it turns out the name change of the SSD was what caused it. I renamed it back and everything is fine now. ha. thanks for the help.
