I've encountered a problem where I'm pressing command+e to open the project associated with a render out of after effects, and it just keeps opening in quicktime. I assume that means that the drive the original project was on is not connected, and I have no idea where to look for it. If I could read the metadata that After Effects uses to open the original project that a movie was rendered from, though, I might be able to at least get a file path to give me a clue where to start looking, or at least that's my thinking. Anyone know if theres a way to do that?
Gage, try opening the movie in a text editor and searching for "aeProjectLink" (without the quotes). The file path for the original AEP should be a few lines below that if "Include project link" was enabled at render time.
