I have several image sequences that I have re-organized into other folders on a server connected via SMB. As usual, AE needs some help re-finding these files when I open my project.
But… and this is new behavior… when I double click on the missing footage to re-find them with a file dialog, the files inside the folders are grayed out. Similarly, I cannot “Replace Footage…” as all files appear as greyed out and un-importable.
Now I can do a regular Import of these same files, but then I have to manually swap them out in my comps, which is time consuming (and annoying!).
Anyone else experiencing this? And any way to fix? The fact that I can import these items fresh, but not replace them is weird and would seem to rule out file permission problems.
