After Effects error: Can’t find requested element “string”. ( 33 :: 0 )
For a couple of days I've been trying to figure out why every time I was saving my project and then trying to open it again I was getting this error.
"After Effects error: Can’t find requested element “string”. ( 33 :: 0 )"
I thought I might have a bug in some of the video clips I was using, because when I deleted the clips I could open the file.
After installing and reinstalling After Effects again this had no effect.
Getting stressed with an important upcoming deadline I decided to reformat my whole system and began rebuilding my project and reimporting my clips.
When I came to one scene where I needed to use the Rotobrush I discovered the error again when I tried to reopen the file.
I've removed my comp that used the Rotobrush effect now and the project is saving and reopening without any issues.
Hope this helps someone out and saves them hours of frustration and head scratching.
