I was working on a project in animate, I had two separate layers one that had an imported video and one that was my line art. I went back today to open the file and for some reason, adobe merged both layers and deleted all frames but one. I check the recovery file and it is in the same state. Does anyone know why this happened or how to fix it?

if all the saved fla's are corrupted, you have a small chance if you have a swf published from an uncorrupted fla.

This is a first. Are you sure you don't have ther most recent version saved to a different folder? Did you search your computer for the file name to ensure a more recnt copy isn't in a different folder?

I'm sure, I only had it saved through one 1 folder, I did discover though, that the whole animated sequence is in the library?? I'm not sure how it got there but now when I try to import it to the stage it's still stuck on the first frame.

Ahhhh yeah you simply animated inside a symbol which is referred to as "nesting". That's great! Back out on parent timeline, just make sure there are enough frames to accomodate the length of the animation nested inside the symbol. And MAKE SURE the symbol is a Graphic symbol and not Movie Clip. If a MC, just click on the symbol and change it's behavior using the drop-down in Properties Panel.
