Can't import ProRes 422 footages into after effects...

hi everyone,
I have a problem with importing ProRes 422 footages into After Effects... I've been read some articles about this bug, but I've got nothing, i don't know what FCP is! and i'm really confused, I heard that After Effects CS5.5 can import it, but i can't reach this version of software, is there any solution that i could import footages in AE CS5?
sorry for my bad english
thanks in advance

[Alireza Kheirabadi] "I have a problem with importing ProRes 422 footages into After Effects..."

I think this means, "When I import ProRes 422 footage into After Effects, I can't see the video. I only see a blank window."

You need to install the latest version of Quicktime 7. It will let you see the video. However, you won't be able to render to the ProRes 422 codec. Apple reserves that ability for computers running Final Cut Pro 7, which is one of the applications in Final Cut Suite 3.

But don't worry: you can render in Quicktime's PNG codec, or you can render a PNG image sequence. I edit on Final Cut Pro at work and sometimes take shots home for After Effects work on a Windows machine, and that's what I do.

Please give details on what happens when you try to import the footage. Are there error messages? Does After Effects simply do nothing? Have you used all the different ways to import the footage?
