All imported images are missing

When I’m opening my saved .sifz file I’m getting an error as the image I attached here layer 'imported "rejected value for parameter 'filename’. All my objects appear “missing” from the canvas. Everything used in these documents are imported .png files created in adobe illustrator. I have just recently started having this issue that is impacting all my projects.

I keep all imported images in a particular spot in my pictures document that has never been moved. I’m doing a cut-out animation so the parts are in a separate file from the animations themselves.

I seen something about unpacking and editing the paths through a text editor, but I’m not sure on how to do that. I’m new to the whole animation world let alone synfig. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Have you tried placing all the png files under the same folder as the sif animation?
