After working on a composition for a couple hours, I was wrapping up work minutes before I was going to save and call it a night, but After Effects mysteriously crashed and I had no option but to close AE without saving. I recall After Effects failing in the past, so I had the Auto-Save feature enabled, but I'm not entirely sure where it would have saved because I sort of "laissez-faire" enabled it without paying much attention to where it goes. The current system that I have set up for Auto-Save is so that it saves "Next to Project". That's nice and all, but this was the first 2 and only 2 hours that I've worked on the project. Does this mean that auto-save only kicks in after you've saved your project at least once? Or is there a fail-safe folder that After Effects generally saves to. Thanks if anyone can provide me with some insight and yes, I've changed the folder location to a set destination for future reference.
