I am working on a short turn-around project that is being put together in After Effects. The quicktime footage I was given will play audio but not the video. The info on the quicktime says it has the XDCAM EX codec. I do not have final cut pro on my computer, and I have spent a while trying to search out a codecs or solutions without figuring it out. Any ideas?

Shane's Stock Answer #48 - Cannot view DVCPRO HD, HDV or ProRes QT files on your computer.
The DVCPRO HD, HDV and ProRes codecs only comes with FCP. If your computer does not have FCP installed, it cannot view these quicktime files. It doesn't matter if it is a Mac or PC, without FCP installed, you cannot view these files.
If you need to view ProRes material, you can download the ProRes decoder (mac and windows compatible) for ProRes
