Without any explanation on what is going on and things like system info we can't tell you anything. Just showing us screenshots of warnings is not in any way useful when we don't understand what might have led up to it.

Hey Rockerface,

 

Do you still need help with this or did you figure it out?

Thanks,

Hey @Rameez_Khan It would help to understand the actual issue so that I can avoid it next time.  It seems all i needed to do was rename the file for now.

 

Thanks

This is not a known issue. We need to troubleshoot to figure out the actual issue in your case.

Hi I have been experiencing the same issue for the past week or so. I have a specific project that prompt the same error box when i want to opeb it via double clicking on the projet file. It's the only projet that does this. Tried renaming it multiple times, saved it to a diffent drive wtill get the error "this file does not exist". 

weirdly enough I can open it is I go to file-open rencent- then click on the projet it works.

For now it lets me work on the projet that i need to finish soon. My main concern here is that the projet might be corrupted and that there might be a chance to lose everyting.

 

Please Help

Make multiple and frequent backups.

This is what i'm doing. But this is not a real solution to a problem. I would like to have a better idea  of what can be causing the problem, so to be able to fix it and prevent the problem in the futur.

Hi All,

 

I have the solution for the error "after effects warning project file doesn't exist"

this is the error

Paari_GD_0-1650864377346.png

the simple solution is your file or folders should not have any double space or special characters.

 

the whole projects folder hierarchy should not have any double space or special characters

Paari_GD_1-1650864401237.png

 

even if you have a folder with double space, you will get the same error.

 

look here, my folder has the double space

Paari_GD_2-1650864429102.png

 

but in after effects, it shows only one space

Paari_GD_3-1650864444584.png

 

this was the issue.

so whoever gets this issue please make sure that the whole projects folder hierarchy doesn't have any double space or special characters

 

Thanks
