After Effects Project Doesnn't Exist

I’m guessing I’m missing something obvious. But I signed up for Envato, enterered my credit card. Downloaded my first After Effects project. When I open it, it says that the Project Doesn’t Exist.

What am I doing wrong? Very frustrating that there’s no contact info for Envato at all, No phone number, no email address.


This is a pretty common bug when you’re working with file paths that have spaces or other special characters in them.

Open After Effects from your start menu and go to File > Open Project. Select the project file from there.

Yes, I was double clicking on the project file. Seems silly for that not to work. Opening AE first, then opening the project fixed it.
