after effects folder naming save issue - NO TRACE OF PROJECT SAVE OR AUTO SAVES IN PROJECT FOLDER
on Nov 4, 2011 at 12:13:29 pm

MY PROBLEM.

I Experienced a crash when working with my After Effects CS5 project and am now completely unable to track down the latest saved file or Auto Save version. Earlier today I had made a change to the name of my project folder, however none of my assets within my project required re linking nor did I recieve any error messages when I ctrl S(aved) or when AE auto saved every ten minutes. It would appear no saved file has updated for SIX HOURS. I may have lost A LOT of work...

Help me?

Look for a folder using the old name.

Oh, but I renamed said folder, which was on my desktop. Are you suggesting that by searching for it in finder I will find some reference to it or it itself?

Thanks,

My hope was that AE was still saving to the old folder. If it disappeared, hopefully it created a new one with the same old name.
The whole thing just sounds too weird.
