AE project crashing when I open
on Nov 30, 2018 at 4:46:59 pm

Hi everyone —

I have an AE file that's somehow corrupted and crashing AE as I open it. I tried importing instead of opening, caps lock / holding shift while opening, as well as changing my display preferences. I also tried moving / renaming my source files.

All the backup versions also crash ae. I'm in AE 2019.

One backup file opens to 77%, but an AE warning appears saying, "This project contains a render queue item that refers to a non-existent composition. Please verify that your render queue items refer to the correct compositions."

As I hit "Okay" to close this dialogue box, ae crashes again.

It seems the project could open if there was just a way to go around this Render Queue dialogue box? Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

AE CC 2019 is NOT Adobe's best effort. If you can revert to an earlier version, I recommend it.

If you absolutely MUST have the new features in the new version -- i.e. your life will end if you don't have them -- you may face a long road of troubleshooting.

Sorry, I'm not qualified to help; I happily run CC 2017, with no intention of using a later version unless there's a gun put to my head.
