When I try to load a clip into Particle Illusion, I get an error message that says: AVI Request Format Error? I'm loading an NTSC Widescreen 16:9 Aspect ratio video. The video was shot in 16:9 ratio if that makes any difference. I can use some help since I cannot even use Particle Illusion. Thanks
In short - and this is a quote from one of Elvis Deane's previous posts:
nipped from the pI FAQ:
particleIllusion currently has problems with DV formats. This problem is expected to be fixed in the next update of particleIllusion (3.x). As a work around, you can use VirtualDub to convert your AVI into a codec which particleIllusion can use, or to a sequence of images (PNGs, TGAs, TIFs, etc.).
You can also download the Panasonic DV codec, which should allow you to bring DV AVIs into pI, but beware! I've found that it makes some video editing programs have trouble importing AVIs encoded with certain other codecs (divx, xvid).
