After Effects warning: Could not delete the file..
on Apr 19, 2011 at 6:45:41 am

I am having trouble exporting an .swf file from After Effects. Everytime I try I get the same error: "After Effects warning: Could not delete the file 'C:\Users\Stephanie\Desktop\AE_swf263170.jpg'." and I end up getting only partially rendered videos. Thanks in advance!

Hi i only made this account just to answer your question smh lmaooo well here you go the answer ive been at this for months finally found the solution you beautiful women you

Here’s what’s happening:
1. AE creates a temporary JPEG file during creation of the SWF.
2. It then attempts to delete the file.
3. Inbetween creating and deleting the file, some other program has grabbed the file and is trying to use it. (Hence the “file is busy” message.)
4. AE can’t delete the file. Either your anti-virus program is at fault, or Spotlight is doing it. So you should:
A. Turn off any anti-virus software.
B. Go into the System Prefs > Spotlight, go to the Privacy tab, and add the folder you are using. This way Spotlight won’t try to index the temp files at the same time that AE is trying to delete them.

I have the same problem. I solved it by going into Task Manager and ending ZumoCast and Verizon's Vcast media manager. It tries to organize any new images even though the program hasn't been launched.

Hello, I also have this problem, though I can't find any application that uses these files. What's more strange is that it only happens in one project. I can render other ones without any issues.
