Check your render setting! Seems you have "Repalce Usage" enabled and create an unresolvable circular loop.
Thanks for the reply!
However the only place I can find "Replace Usage" is in the Output Module, under the pull-down menu; "Post-Render Action". I have a template choosing "Set Proxy" and not "Import & Replace Usage.
Am I missing "Replace Usage" in the Render Module? Any other ideas for me?
I appreciate it, thank you.
But do you store the files in separate locations/ give them unique names? Still sounds like you are throwing off things by overwriting your own files...
I haven't been changing the file name, however I have been modifying the default save dialogue box to save the proxies to a folder within the shot folder I mention above. I've been saving all the proxies in the same folder. The movie gets saved ok, but no proxy is assigned/saved to my footage in AE where I need it... I guess my question know becomes; how, (do I reset the output?) and where should I save the output to...?
Please excuse my inexperience - and your help is much appreciated!
edit: and when I right-click>create proxy on my footage, another composition with the footage name is created. Is this correct? I have actually watched Andrew Kramer's Creating Proxy Video numerous times, following his instructions to the letter, (so I thought), and I didn't notice that happen. His proxy was created with the on/off square next to the footage with no problem! Arrrgh.

Ok I have been stuck looking for an answer to this all day, so I thought I would share what I have found when someone else googles and comes across this thread
Essentially what is happening is that when you have created a custom output module you have also saved which artwork will be replaced with a proxy.
Test it with without changing the output module
