"Project Offline" message in After Effects

Greetings,

I’m able to work on a SIlhouette project in AE, but I’m getting this “Project Offline” showing up in my AE window which still stays there even after opening and exiting the Silhouette project on my AE track. Thanks for any direction on getting rid of the message.

If the Silhouette parameters within After Effects, if the Render control is set to Paint and you have no Paint node, you would get this message.

I seem to be having this issue also. I have a source → power matte Node → and Composite node and it still says project is offline.

Set the Render control in After Effects to Composite.
