Hi everybody,

 

I try to create a post on this forum (Adobe After Effects). But when I try to attach a "AE project" to my post and then preview my post, I received this error message, and my file is refused.

- I tried to attach a fresh empty "AE project" created with AE 2021 on MacOS Big Sur, and checked the extension (.aep). Didn't worked.

- I tried to save my AE project on "Save as Copy As 17.x". Didn't worked.

- I tried to attach a Photoshop files. It worked.

 

=> Are we still able to post ".aep" files on this forum ?

 

Thank you for your help !

Ignore the attached file (aa.psd). It was a test, and I wasn't able to remove it when I posted the post.

I use Dropbox or Google Drive to share AEP files. If you need to share the AEP file, that's the easiest option. The list of the supported file types shows up if the upload fails. It's a bit hard to read, but they are all there. Somehow AEP files were left off the list. 

(edit)

Are you sure your AEP file was not too big? Warp Stabilizer, Rotobrush, and a few other tools can bloat an AEP very quickly.

Thank you for your answer.

(it seems AEP files do appear in the list of valid file)

 

Anyway, I think I will do as you propose and upload my files a third-party service. Probably GitHub, and share a link pointing to this service, because I fear that I'll clean my Dropbox once, and the file will be gone for everyone :S

 

Best regards!
