After Effects CS4 - Can't import images?
on Nov 6, 2011 at 8:27:08 pm

Ok, so I bought After Effects CS4 on ebay, a month ago. Today I opened it, and when after effects was booting up, there was an error message, saying:

After Effects Error: Cannot import Illustrator files because the parser plug-in could not be found.
( 52 :: 0 )

I also get

After Effects Error: AEGP Plugin Vector Output: JPEG file Format Module required.
( 5027 :: 12 )

Then when you click "Ok", on both of them after effects boots up. Everything works fine, except importing image files. When I import image files it brings up an error.
I am running a "After Effects CS4, 9.03"
I am on a Mac OSX 10.5.8

Help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Ian, I'd suggest a full un-install and re-install.
