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?
