I came across this error when I was opening an After Effects file my co-worker made. It gave me this error for all the photos in the project.
We're both using version 188.8.131.52
Has anyone ever seen this error? JPEG backwards?
UPDATE: I just now figured out how to fix it (it was a permissions issue since we're using a SAN), but I was still curious if anyone had seen this GEPJ error. Weird.
Presumably some odd programmer's humour. No idea what it could be an acronym for, but it might be interesting to find out. Otherwise it could be a parsing error of course.
It's just JPEG in reverse.
All part of the great new direction Adobe products are moving in.
For anyone who encounters this error in the future:
The solution is ensure that your JPEGS are in RGB, having CMYK will force this error when trying to import into AE
Yup, for me this was CMYK issue. I mean seriously, it was photoshop I was saving the images in, so how Adobe can't get a more helpful error message or even convert the colour space automatically is beyond me.
And what if you're getting this error on an RGB jpeg? Nothing I do will change this. Is it down the the resolution of the image? I've tried copying the content into a new PSD document, and re-saving as a jpeg. Nothing I do works? Any advice?
I realize this is coming WAY later than most posts, but I'm having this issue and it can't be the CMYK/RGB thing. If I import the photo as if it's a NEW import, the photo comes in fine. It's only when I try to replace footage that it happens. This seems odd that it would unsupported for reconnecting but not a fresh import.
My JPEG was a photo taken by a third party on their iPhone, and then sent to me via WhatsApp desktop. Every image that they sent gave the same issue.
I tried opening in Mac 'Preview' and resaving the image, but it gave the same error.
I then opened it in Photoshop and saved as a .PSD. After Effects then imported it with no issues. Larger file, but solved the issue
Further to the above... ALL the images were RGB (because they were taken by a phone!) and I did not change that.
I've just opened another file in PS and re-saved the JPEG. In the JPEG Options dialogue, the Format Options showed 'Progressive' chosen. I've not seen that before, so I changed it to 'Baseline (Standard)' [because always go 'Standard'] and AE imported it with no issues.
I encountered this with files stored on box.com.
