After Effects error codes
I can tell from our search logs that some folks are searching for error codes in a way that is not… um… optimally likely to return relevant results. If you just search for the numbers in the error code (like 7 :: 66), then you’ll get a lot of results for pages that just happen to include the numbers.
So, here’s a tip: Search for the word ‘error’ plus the error code surrounded by double quotation marks, like this search for the error code 7 :: 66. Implicit in this tip is that you should be using the After Effects Community Help search to do your search.
You’ll notice something when you do many searches for After Effects error codes: You get many of the best and most useful results from Mylenium’s After Effects error code database. The guy who maintains that database is one of the most helpful and knowledgeable folks in the After Effects community, Lutz Albrecht. Another thing that you should notice is the Donate button on his site. I’ve used it. I’m just sayin’.
If you need help troubleshooting an issue, come to the After Effects forum, and we’ll help there. If you have bugs to report, please use the bug-report form. Here’s a page that outlines the various ways to give feedback and get help.
By the way, if you’re encountering errors, be sure to install the latest updates, since they include a lot of fixes for errors and other problems.
