Tag Archives: Collect Files

There’s a ridiculous bug in After Effects 2014.2.  (or maybe the OS I’m using?  10.10.3 Yosemite)

Problem:
When I Collect Files, during the process if I move my mouse/input device the Collection will fail, leaving a partial “Footage” folder, and no AE file. 
Solution:
If I use the Return key to start it and DON’T TOUCH MY MOUSE it works!

Additional bug:
When Collecting, the “Reduce Project” check-box option doesn’t seem to work in any case. However, it seems to work correctly when used outside of the Collect Files process.

Speechless.
