After AE crashed and I reopened it, some of the MP4 files in the project are not working. the error 86::1 says that 7 files are "damaged or unsupported" and it cannot be imported.
These files were working fine this morning, and I have not touched them. There are several dozen other mp4 files in the project that have no error. Please advise! I have to deliver this project TOMORROW!
Apologies for my frantic use of CAPS lock, but I am feeling very desperate.
They do import to media encoder, and they play in every other program (VLC, premier, etc...). I shut the computer down and returned a few hours later, and the error had stopped. It is a big project, so perhaps it needed to rest.... But this is the second time that I've run into the issue. Is there any way to adjust my workflow so I can prevent it?
