    Hi, I am trying to update a past project … which I used a plugin to create. But it’s saying I am missing content. But I don’t recognize the icon…and it’s not showing in relink files. Anyone know?😀

    It’s a Generator. Open (double click) the compound clip and see what’s inside.

    I did. It’s the same thing inside the cc.

    But what does the clip say in both the title and when you clip on it (the clip inside the cc).

    Keep trying to upload a screenshot, and it doesn’t take.

    When I open the compound clip named “VW20 Invite Clip”, it opens a very similar looking clip called “Vw20 Invite” that I believe was the plugin. Keep trying to upload a screenshot but it’s very similar looking to what I uploaded already.

    On the top right corner there’s a series of icons. Click on the generator icon (looks like a 2pop next to the little filmstrip) to show the controls in the inspector.

    Thx again. When. I click on that, nothing shows up in the Inspector. 🙁

    Bummer. I was hoping there would be some sort of residual left over to modify. I think the only way to restore this is to find the generator you made (probably in Motion) in a Time Machine or similar, backup.

    You are a smart man. I realized I had customized a Generator (the plugin), so I looked in my Time Machine backups. I found a customized version of the Motion content…but for a similar/different project I had used the same plugin/generator for. At least I have the blank customized generator…but any idea how to find the original? I looked in the Movies/Motion Content and Movies/Motion Templates folders.
