Can't replace missing footage?
on Apr 12, 2017 at 9:37:44 pm

I have several image sequences that I have re-organized into other folders on a server connected via SMB. As usual, AE needs some help re-finding these files when I open my project.

But... and this is new behavior... when I double click on the missing footage to re-find them with a file dialog, the files inside the folders are grayed out. Similarly, I cannot "Replace Footage..." as all files appear as greyed out and un-importable.

Now I can do a regular Import of these same files, but then I have to manually swap them out in my comps, which is time consuming (and annoying!).

Anyone else experiencing this? And any way to fix? The fact that I can import these items fresh, but not replace them is weird and would seem to rule out file permission problems.

Running Mac OS X 10.11.6 & AE CC2017.1
