I'm a newbie having recently migrated from FCP. I moved some assets, and moved a project file as well, and it seems to wreaking a bit of havoc. I open a few of these moved projects and they are totally empty inside. No assets, no folder, no comps. Really even typing "missing" in the dialogue box (which usually works when seeking missing assets) yields nothing. I've gone back to a few auto-save versions and the same thing happens. I then trashed my media cache and one of the projects then opened up fine, but others are still blank.

Any ideas? And what should be my workaround in the future?

thanks for helping out a bonehead!

Um, not really sure if you're talking about an FCP project or an AE project. And if AE, also not sure how you did this: Automatic Duck? Pro Import?

Not enough information so make a good diagnosis. The PRECISE AE version, Hardware, OS, etc. can all be contributing factors to woes.
