    Collect Files… file path too long?

    Nav Parker Level 1

      I remember running into this problem before, but I can't remember the solution.

       

      AE CS5 is saying a file path is too long when I do a collect file.  The image sequence in question is only 7 directories deep -- which doesn't seem too buried considering how AE wants to structure collected files:

       

      /Volumes/HardDrive/ProjectName/CollectFileFolder/(Footage)/CompName/PrecompName/results/3D image_multipass0000.tif

       

      Is it number of directories deep or overall number of characters in the entire path that's the issue?
