Try typing 'missing' into project search bar. Should list missing assets if that's what you're after.

(bump!)

I agree with above. Is there any easy way to see a complete list of all missing files? With hundreds of assets in an overwhelming amount of subfolders it takes quite a bit of time simply to find after effect's link to the missing file, even before searching for the file itself!

This is a great tutorial, but I was hoping to learn how to find a missing file in the Project pamel. I know the file path will be italic and the footage will show as color bars, but I wish AE would give a list of missing files, instead making us dig around the project panel for them. (I've been wishing that since AE was Cosa software.)

What Are Adobe Motion Graphics Templates?

What Are Adobe Motion Graphics Templates?

A Motion Graphics Template, referred to as a MOGRT, is an animated sequence that is self-contained and can be used in Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Premiere Rush and Adobe After Effects, combining graphics, text, audio and video files, as well as vector or still images (including logos), to create a still or animation that can then be customized by the MOGRT user. The result is a dynamic creative tool that provides design freedom and is consistent to its users across apps and devices. Reuse, share, and even sell them!
