As the title describes, I have an issue of missing files when exporting adobe XD to After Effects using the handy "Export > After Effects" . Every time when there's something missing it has to do with a png file (I assume jpg and svg as well).
So I would get an After Effects project with parts missing.
More info about my setup:
What I have tried as a fix:
What I have not done so far:
What I have noticed.
On a different computer doing the export, I had no poblems, so nothing with the XD file.
What I've noticed when comparing (XD > export > After Effects) on both computers was the computer that has issues, did NOT make a temp folder with png in User/AppData/Local/Temp/project_name while the computer where everything works did. No clue why this is and do not know if this is the cause.
So once again on this computer Export with images = not a good time.
Can you please help me with this problem.
Ps: I have the plugin for XD to AE
Standard answer: Start by actually checking your layer, state and object names in XD and rename them sensibly if necessary.
Apologies I should have mentioned the name.
These are the original names (img below) of the objects that then get renamed (in example first post).
You mentioned that the computer with the issue does not create the User/AppData/Local/Temp/project_name folder. Maybe you have an access issue with the user in this computer and XD does not save the files accordingly? Have you tried to run XD as admin instead (just right click XD app icon and select Run as Admin when opening it)?
Interestingly enough there is no "Run as administrator" for XD but for all other apps there is.
Is this because XD as a Windows app? Adobe XD is not installed in the same folder as the other apps, not 100% certain but XD is installed in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps .
Ps: my user account is administrator if this gives some help.
Exact same thing is happening to me right now...2 days ago everything was fine.
Both XD and AE are updated.
I made no changes to my system.
Can I get some support love?
