After Effects CS5.5 crashes on opening a CS4 project file (a friends) and indicates crashing in effect "levels". No chance to get inside project to see what's wrong. Tried opening wirh CS5 and CS4. Same problem. Copied original file across again and same thing happens. How can I either get this open to see whay's up or be able to turn off "levels" from having an affect???
It warns of converting the file, a missing effect (Looks), some missing files, then crashes. Can't identify missing files as I can't see project assets. Cant see anything before it goes away. Can I even remove this effect temporarily to get this loaded???
Try creating a new project and importing the problematic project into it.
try to restart and resets AE press Alt+Shift +Command (control for windows) when AE is launching it will ask if you want to reset
