I have CC 2018, but it seem After Effects is looking for some animation presets in the 2017 folder. Here is what the error says specifically: After Effects error: File not found: "/Applications/Adobe After Effects CC 2017/Presets/Image - Creative/Bloom - brights.ffx".(3 :: 0)
I see this file in the 2018 folder. How can I make it look there?
I think the best option is to delete older installations of After Effects. You can do it via Creative Cloud Panel. If you are using macOS (it looks like) remove the Adobe After Effects CC 2017 folder from your applications folder. Be careful because if you have some 3rd party effects installed in CC2017 you will loose them. So maybe you need to move the filters to your CC 2018 installation or run the installers again for CC2018.
Also, you can delete the preferences file for CC2018. As soon as you launch AE, hold COMMAND+ALT+SHIFT. You will be prompted to delete the preferences file.
I had already deleted the older ones, but deleting the preferences did the trick. Thank you.
I have just encountered the exact same problem. Updated my CC apps from 2019 to 2020, and now my AE files won't link with previously animated Adobe Illustrator links. Animations are still there, but the links are blank.
Resaved the Ai files as Ai CC 2020, reimported them and replaced the links. Worked perfectly... until I saved, closed and reopened the file. Back to square one. Error ( 3 :: 0 ).
I did deleted all the older versions and even delete all the old preferences and the same error keeps promted each time I want to save any project any idea, why is this happening?
All of a sudden I am getting this error (3::0) and also (86::1) errors with every project I try to open.
And if that isn't enough one that reads ...
Notice that "jpeg" is backwards! This is maddening!
I have updated to AE 2020, deleted all the old versions. Tried going BACK. Updated my iOS. Then went back to Monteray, because that had been working. Deleted the preferences, cleared the cache. Ran disc doctor.
I can't think of anything else to try.
Anybody have any ideas??
Same here, has anyone solved this error 3 issue I havethe same endless errors(
I had this problem also. I could not save to my external SSD drive. Tried with deleting preferences but it didnt work. Also restarting my MacBook didnt work either. Last thing that did work is changing/renaming folder I was trying to save to. Dont know if this will help anyone. It worked for me.
I work on latest AE version, MacBook Pro M1Pro.
I got identical problem with you, but your last try didnt work for me.
Are you using the latest version of Mac OS?
Cuz the problem occured since I got updated my OS to Ventura
해당 답변이 도움이 될지 모르겠지만, 제 경우에 외장 SSD 드라이브에 작업물들을 모두 변경 및 저장 후 마운틴 해제 > 재연결, 프로그램 종료 후 다시 시작하는 것으로 해결하였습니다.
저는 2020 MacBook Air M1을 사용, Mac OS는 13.0.1(22A400)입니다.
Yes it was on Ventura. And that was the last time I had trouble with this issue.
i had the same problem and it was because i had special caracter in the name of the folder where was the after effect projet. try to remove all special caracters if you have any in the name of the folder or the project
this problem was driving me crazy, and I tried that and it worked, thank you very much.
Alguém pode ajudar nesse erro?
Não estou conseguindo salvar o projeto, mesmo eu fazendo "novo projeto" e quando eu vou salvar aparece esse erro. Uso o After no MacOs Sonoma
Qual procedimento eu devo fazer para resolver esse problema??
Já desinstalei e instalei novamente. Mas, continua o mesmo
This worked for me. Many many thanks!!
Funcionou muito pra mim isso
This is a really weird error. It seems like when I save to various sectors of the hard drive, it is random if it saves or not. I even thought my external hard drive was corrupted. So I bought a new one, transferred the files and the same issue happened...
But I tried to change the name on a specific folder on the hard drive, without having æøå in the name. That seems to be working so far. Does your folder on the hard drive have name with any special characters?
I did have some of šđžćč characters in my filename and changing them fixed my problem.
Thats works with my problem too. Thanks
This worked for me. I guess I cant use proper portuguese characters anymore.
