Updating "Missing Effect" Error

Recommended Posts

Im working on a tutorial I downloaded from Computer Arts. It was done in AE 6.5 and uses Keylight. I have CS3 but the project file included with the tut doesnt recognize Keylight in CS3. I assume its because the Keylight in CS3 is technically called "Keylight (1.2)" as oppsed to just "Keylight" . Is there a way I can tell the project to use the newer version or do I just need to go through and copy all the settings and keyframes and paste them into the new Keylight effect?

 

Any help is much appreciated.

Copy&Paste. Effects are referenced by their internal matchname, not the UI name. There's no chance to simply redirect them to updated versions if the internal matchname has also been change (which it does in case of Keylight).
