After I updated to the latest release of After Effects (last week) I get these warnings for all footage in my project file whenever I alt-tab between AE and other apps.

Its getting quite annoying... The project works fine whenever Im inside AE, but I have to click through these warnings every time I leave the AE-window.

The warning says;

After Effects warning: Unable to open file.

"footage path". If the file is opened in another application, closing it may solve the problem.

None of my footage-files are opened in other apps.

Please help

Hi Phillip, it seems that they solved the issue with the last update.

It works good for you too?

Have a nice day.

Similar problem here, let's try to figure it out

Image sequence warning

Do you have any plugin installed (you probably have, of course) that can cause some issue?

I have a bunch of them and I was thinking that this may be some strange connection with something else.

Hi! Both glad and sad im not alone with this issue

I read your thread and my case is pretty much the same.

AE keeps giving errors for my .EXR sequences whenever I return to the AE-window.

Project files and footage files (.EXRs) are located on a RAID inside my computer (4 x HGST desktar 6TBs in RAID1).

Apps are installed on a 512GB SSD (Samsung 850 Pro). Windows 10. AE cahce goes to an m.2 SSD (Samsung 961 Pro).

And yes, I have a bunch of plugins.

Trapcode, Sapphire, Universe, VC E3D, Optical Flares, Frishcluft, Reelsmart, Flickerfree.

However I get these errors in project files that isnt using any plugins. I havent updated any plugins after the AE-update.

Yes, it happens to me as well with brand new projects with no plugins used, I was just thinking it can be something that works bad on another level. It's a long shot, of course, but I'm trying to think of every scenario.

From that list we have in common Trapcode and E3D, maybe I will try to disable them and see what's happening.

First time I experienced this issue I was actually on a project that uses both plugins.

See you later Philip.

Hi! I didnt know there was a new update available (I do not pay enough attention to the Creative Cloud app).

And I was just getting used to the bug and learning to live with it
The new update relieved me of all my frustration!

Thanks for the heads up!

Take care.

I get the same issue. Been getting issues for years with Adobe. The too big to fail mentality. So my solution to many of these problems is simple... Davinci Resolve
