So I had big project get corrupted because I used more than one Zax Pro effect in a single comp. I started over and I pushed my luck and did it again. Well, it still crashed, but luckily, the remove plugins and restart trick worked. This time I just deleted the second layer since it had less work involved. I saved, restored the plugins and my project came back to life! I would like to know if i could nest a pre-comp with the second zax effect instead and avoid this annoying crash. I suppose i could pre-render, but i have not settled on my camera angle, so my second zax fx was linked by expressions to the main fx. Could linking properties by expressions cause corrupt zax files? I swear I have used multiple zax elements in single comp before.
