I working in AE CS4 and somehow I got to instances of ProAnimator running. I tired to quit and now when I open that file it says it is corrupt. Is there any way to save this? What is really weird is when I try to open a backup from yesterday it says it is corrupt now too!

Sorry to hear that you are running into File corruption. This is sometimes due to the ProAnimator program, or the ProAnimator Preferences getting corrupted.
Try re-installing the ProAnimator plug-in, and also deleting the ProAnimator Preferences file.
To re-install ProAnimator, delete the ProAnimator folder from your After Effects plug-ins folder, and re-extract the ProAnimator zip file you downloaded. Then, move the extracted ProAnimator file into the Plug-ins folder.
To delete the ProAnimator Preferences file, do the following:
1. Find the "/Users//Library/Preferences" folder.
2. Find the "Zaxwerks PA Prefs" file.
3. Delete the Preferences file.
Let me know if you are still running into any issues.
