Not having an option to collect files, or to save as is not really helpful. What if the online CC platform is down and I want to work from the local file on my machine? Where is that temporary AE project saved? What if I just need to send an AE project to somebody without an CC subscription?
I'm currently in AE, looking for a way to save my team project as a local .AE file, because i want to use the COMP/EXPORT AS TEXT TEMPLATE. This option seems to be greyed out in team projects. How can i do this? THX!
I had the same issue so I nagged them on twitter and also opened another topic with the same question. Here is how to do it:
1. Open the Console Panel (On Mac, Cmd+F12 or fn+Cmd+F12 and On Win Ctrl+F12).Switch to Debug Database View
2. Set the flag AE.Anywhere.SupportProductionToProject to be true.
3. Relaunch AE.
4. Now in the Edit Menu, under Team Project you will see the option: Save Team Project as Project
Sorry for the issues you are facing while using Team Projects with After Effects. There are couple of points I would like to make.
Hope it helps.
