Hello and thanks in advance for your help

i normally convert to a lossless codec for editing but with this particular project the files are huge to begin with and i don't have that option. but as far as i know people have been able to open the JVC .MOD hd files in after effects cs4 by changing the extension to the recognised .m2ts but when i try i get the error "After Effects: AEGP Plugin AAF: Error occurred while creating project (5027 :: 12)" i don't have the option of trying cs5 because i'm running a 32bit OS. is there anyway i can make this work with these files?

Then you, sir, are at an impasse: you don't have enough storage, and AE 9 can't use m2t files. You're stuck. You can't do much at all.

As I see it, you have two options: 1) use less-than-lossless quality files to reduce storage space, which isn't a good idea, or 2) get more storage.

You have to do one or the other, because you can't get AE 9 to work with the m2t files. I guess it's a situation where you have to pick your poison.
