I've been using a template for about a year now to create weekly web videos for our company. I finally got a couple of spare boxes set up for the after effects network render. I've gone to the collect files command but when I do that it tries to copy out the .avi source file to the watch folder and I end up getting a couple of error messages.
after effects error writing to file bad file reference number -51
after effects error getting position in file
Does anyone know what these errors mean and how I can fix them? Thanks.
The files are probably simply too large. this has been an issue forever with collect files. Replace them with a still image, do the collect, then open the collected project and manualyl copy the files into the folder and relink them.
