After Effects 2021 is not allowing me to save. I haven't been able to save, save a copy or any other work around. I'm afraid I'll lose a day of work.

 

I am on After Effects 18.2.0 Build 37 on a Mac Pro running Big Sur 11.4. 

 

At the top it still says "Untitled Project *"

 

Any idea with what's going on?

Hi Anthony,

 

Sorry for your issue.

What happens when you try to save? Do you see any error message? Feel free to share a screenshot. You can try saving the project to a different location.

Let us know.

 

Thanks.

If I click "Save", nothing happens. If I go to "Save As" nothing happens.

 

Instead of a screenshot, I took a desktop video:

Anyone? I've had to keep the project open all night and I'm afraid to close it.
