Is it possible to search for a specific .aep file in my projects folder, by looking for something from the render queue or maybe using one of the specific comp names, or footage?
In other words, sometimes I render out something miscellaneous in a project and then can't remember which project I did the work in. Looking to see if there is a shortcut to back trace a rendered file back to it's source. Other than opening projects until I find it. That is, until I get nice and organized with my workflow.
If you have checked Include Project Link in the Output module then you can open up the rendered file in Premiere Pro and then use Edit Original. I don't know of any other way to use the embedded metadata to find the original AEP file.
Still learning all the little things that can be checked! That's a great thing to know (for me!)
