AE CS4 problem(New with AE)

Postby IzayaNeko » Sat Jun 11, 2011 10:57 am

Hi guys!I'm new to this forum and also new with After Effect cs4!

Now that i'm in vacations i had plenty time to play around with AE but when i tried to put a video on it,it was taking out this:
After effects error:file ''(the files name).avi'' cannot be imported?this .avi' fille is damaged or unsupported


Btw i made this video on sony vegas so i could put some extra effects on AE!But no!I tried some other files and the same!I also tried to re-install it but nothing changed....


Any suggestions plz? :cry:

Do you know what codec your files were encoded with?
If not, get mediainfo and it'll tell you.

Divx, Xvid aren't meant for editing, and can cause programs to throw a fit like this.
H.264 isn't any better (and it shouldn't be in an .avi container, but it is possible).

If you're just planning on working with a small section of your AMV (or even the entire AMV) you should have the space to render out of vegas with a lossless codec such as UTVideo or Lagarith (google those if you don't have them, or get them from the amvapp).
