Missing frames warning
on Dec 12, 2012 at 12:26:40 am

I just reopened a project that I've been working on with no issues with several precomped compositions and got this warning out of the blue: "After Effects warning: The sequence has 13 missing frames. (39::44)

Naturally I freaked out a bit, but when I scrub the timeline or do a RAM preview, even though the frame counter jumps ahead at the indicated spot, everything seems to look OK. I haven't changed any of the elements or made any changes to the composition since last opening it. Does anyone have a clue as to what caused the warning? Should I just ignore it?
Thanks for any advice.

In your Project Panel, Type " missing " in the search bar. This will search the missing files in your project. You will see small rainbow colored icons and name of the clip will appear italicized. Now select the file, Right click on it and select Reveal in Composition.

This will let you know from which composition, your files are missing.

If your final comp is not affected by these files as you have said then you can remove them.
