Our company works on many After Effects projects, originally created in AE 7. We use After Effects CS5, and find that many of the scene elements appear to be scattered about the scene indescriminantly. Everything still moves and animates correctly, however the positioning is just off. AE 7 projects have been tested on an old trial version of 7 and the positioning was all correct, so the files are not corrupt in any way.. Is there any known solution for this in AE CS5?
What elements? If you are referring to AI or PSD files, then yes, there have been notable changes and fixes in CS4 with regards to using cropped layers from such files which may throw off things, if they were saved in older versions. The simple fix is to open those files in a CS4 or CS5 version of AI and re-save them.
Thanks for the reply. I tried resaving the Ai and PSD source files as CS5 versions, but it didn't help at all. It seems like the issue is to do with a conflict between 7 and CS5 versions of After Effects. Any other suggestions maybe?
