Adobe After Effects is software application which is used for motion graphics, compositing application development and visual effects. This application creates a project in which different images, videos and other elements are added to work on.
The progress of each project is saved with the help of a project file. This file is given the extension of AEP. AEP stands for After Effects Project. This file stores all the work done by the user. This file is used to save all the workspace along with the configuration and setting of the workspace. Even when the final animation or video is completed, project file saves all the data and information about the tools and effects used by the user.
In addition to the problem described above, i.e. the lack of the appropriate application to support the .AEP file, there may be several reasons that cause problems with opening and operation of the data format:
A quite common problem is the lack of application in the appropriate version. Even if you have an application, with the help of which you should open the .AEP file, you may have a problem with it because of its version. Perhaps in previous versions the application has not yet supported the .AEP file, so download the update and check again.
If you have already installed the appropriate application, and it is the correct version, the file may not open correctly, because the operating system does not have information that this program supports the file. So you need to "show" which program the computer should use. To do this:
It also happens that the file you want to open is corrupt and therefore there is no such possibility. In this situation, you should find its different version, or ask a person from whom you got, to send it again.
