AE CS5 forgets location of TIFF image sequence
on Nov 18, 2010 at 4:38:33 pm

I'm working on a project where I've loaded several TIFF (8bit) image sequences. Every time I close the project and re-open, the image sequences show as "color bars", and I need to "replace" the files with the identical files. The location of the files have not changed. Also, I can't just "re-load" footage. I must "replace" files for After Effects to see the footage again. Once replaced, doesn't seem to be a problem until I close the project.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
-B

Well, you know that Adobe has an update from AE 3.0 to AE 3.1, meant just for those new PowerMacs with the 256-megahertz processors in them. Now, you DO need to be running Mac OS 8.6, so make sure you have it. Oh, and you also need to have the full compliment of RAM, 512 MB.

I hope I got your version of AE and system specs right.

Lately, the three most common culprits in AE 10 weirdness in order of importance are:
1) not having the free update to AE 10.0.1
2) using Open GL to accelerate rendering -- just turn it off -- and
3) RAM misallocations for multiprocessing

Here are the latest RAM & core allocation recommendations:

I hope your problem is easily solved.

Thanks for the link Dave,
definitely seems like it's a memory issue
