..Segment2.aep" file not found (-43)
It looks as if the missing file is an imported After Effects file, not a footage item. Can you not find the referenced AE file (Segment2.aep)?
Hey Time Remapper, thanks for your interest.
Not sure what you mean though.... I know that the After Effects Project in
question used footage that no longer exists. However, the file I'm trying to
open ("Segment2.aep") is saved and should otherwise open (probably with
color bar screens though).
It's extremely frustrating and costing me lots of time.
Oh, well it looked from your initial description that you had possibly imported an After Effects project into another After Effects project.
That being said, you may want to try the very same thing to see if you can salvage you seemingly corrupt project file. Try to create a brand new After Effects project, and import the file that you're trying to open (Segment2.aep) into the new project. If the file isn't corrupted, it should import.
Aside from that, if you have a backup of your old project, I'd suggest trying to restore it.
Brilliant! You're a genius! It worked!
A couple of error messages came up as it was loading saying some files were
corrupted or couldn't be located but it all loaded. Thanks a ton!
