After Effects Warning: Invalid Menu Operation - related to amount of compositions
I believe I just found a current problem related to the "Invalid Menu Operation" warning that has been discussed on this forum several times before.
I'm working on a project that has a lot of compositions.
If a composition is used more than 1168 times and I try to right-click it in the Project panel, I get an "After Effects Warning: Invalid Menu Operation" popup.
I tested it in CC 2020 and CC 2022 - same bug.
I had four different pre-comps used over 1168 times in other compositions. As a test, I just kept deleting the comps that used the pre-comps, and as soon as I deleted enough comps that the pre-comp was used 1168 times or less, the bug went away - no more pop-up and I could right-click the comp and use the menu. This happened for all four of the pre-comps that were used over 1168 times.
I searched, and haven't seen anyone else report this specific problem / cause / solution.

Yeah hit this today with many masks. Desperate for a fix to this, only happens for me on windows machines, runs fine on Mac. Even low spec machines
Thank you for reporting this issue. We are able to reproduce it as well and are investigating a fix for a future version of After Effects.
