You could likely try one of the many import/ export/ project management scripts on AEScripts.com.

Hi sigalite86633480,

 

Sorry for your issue.

It seems to be working fine for me. Is it happening with a particular project? Would you mind testing it with a new project? Also, what's the exact version of After Effects you're using: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-discussions/faq-how-to-reset-trash-preferences-in-after...

Let us know.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

The functions appear to be currently somehow busted on Mac at least from what I read here on the forum, hence I was referring to the scripts.

Hi Mylenium, 

I've searched for more info on this but can't find any. Could you please suggest the best import/export script? I so wish Adobe would fix this bug- it's so frustrating and time-consuming to be without it! Thanks!!

Jenny

I tried everything wrestling with a similar bug that happens with collects using AE over Dropbox and files not sync correctly.  I even tried manually changing the file paths and Volume names in an XML / .aepx file.  It still ignored the path even though the files were there forcing a re-link one by one.  

Solve:
A resonable solve was to use Immigration from AE scripts, saved me hrs of pain.

I just re-organized all of my source media, and when I went into AE, I simply had to repeat the process once per System folder. I located one file and AE automatically found the rest.

Thanks!! I realized that my Apple iCloud settings were the culprit-- had the "optimize storage" setting checked--so it had sent those files into the cloud (my drive was too full) and they needed to be downloaded again. Any file that had the cloud icon next to it needed to be downloaded again.

I have no Idea, why Adobe is not implementing a propper automatic search and relink feature in the Mainprogramm directly. Ths is so essential and comment. It´s like not having an import feature at all
