Here's the error message after the project opens 98%

 

After Effects Warning: Could not create an essential graphics parameter because it refers to an non-existent layer

 

Clicking ok only brings up the same dialogue box.

 

This is after spending 10 hours working on it yesterday. I did delete a text layer before saving, but it was working just fine yesterday.

Hi there,

 

Sorry for your issue. We'd need more information so that we can troubleshoot the issue better.

  1. What is the exact version of After Effects are you using: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects/faq-how-to-find-the-exact-version-of-after-effects-you-...
  2. Did you use any third-party plug-in?
  3. Is it the only project with the issue or this is reproducible?

We're here to help, just need more info.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

Hi Hamza0101,

 

Sorry for your issue.

Are you getting the exactly same error message? Try importing your project into a new project.

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks,
