I was working on a project a couple months ago, exporting my HDV/m2t files from Premiere Pro to Lagarith, which I then worked on in AE CS4.
I recently formatted my computer and reinstalled AE, Kazaa Mega Codec Pack and Lagarith. When I open my AE project file up, all the old Lagarith footage is black! I exported some Laga files from PPro after the reinstall, and on importing these to AE, they show up fine.
NOTE: I used "YUY2" mode in the old Laga files, and "RGB (Default)" in the new Lagas.
So I tried playing the old and new Lagarith files with Media Player Classic -- the new Lagas play, but I get an error with the old Lagas (which don't show up in AE). The warning says, "The following pins failed to find a connectable filter: AVI Decompressor::XForm Out". There's a lot more detail afterwards for Media Types 0 - 8 (0 below).
I'm guessing I have to tweak some codec settings but don't know what to do. Please help!!
