Hey, I need some help, This first time Im having a problem with AE and dont know what to do.. hope the best community in world can help! xD

I have a movie in avi format that I imported to a editing software.. and I cut out some scenes and rendered them one at a time into seperate .wma 720 hd files.. because there was no option to make avi.

When I import them to AE now it says //interpret footage// the item has an unlabeled alpha channel.

And it gets imported but I cant work with it.. when i select it it says //AFTER EFFECTS ERROR 4// reading frame from file//

im using after effects CS5.5
I tried converting the wma file to avi and i could import the video into after effects now but its just a black screen video without any sound.

Need much more info: What editing software? What AVI file? Frame size, screen size & fps and so on.
What export options you have from that software?
Why into wma?

Try to be more specific about all the tech specs.

You have to try to be more specific: Why you first put it into the editing software?
Why not immediately into AE (because I am not sure what you are editing on is a pro software).
Why exporting it into several bits? And why into wma?
People here want to help, but you need to be more specific.
Explain each step - precies - and try to give all tech specs available to you.

Render it as an MPEG or some of the other options. Why the odd frame size?
