Error importing XML from FCP into After Effects using Automatic Duck
on Sep 10, 2012 at 3:27:26 pm

Hey everyone,

I check to make sure this wasn't already discussed on the forums but I apologise if I've missed it.

I'm using AE CS5.5 on a Mac Pro and FCP Pro 7. Essentially I downloaded the plugin and installed it correctly and then exported the sequence from FCP as an XML file. When I import it into After Effects it throws up an error message and says none of the files can be found. If I go in and manually replace the solids it created then it's fine, but when you're talking over 200 files to find and replace it really isn't a great way to operate.

The movie files are on a G-Raid drive and FCP has no issues with them. My brain literally hurts. Is there anyone that can help?

Thanks

Chris

I don't know if The Duck deals well with solids created in FCP. Solids aren't video footage.
