I'm sure this is super remedial, but I can't figure out what the issue is: I import .avi files into either premiere or AE and the video just shows up as this gray screen:

I tried to troubleshoot, but I'm not even sure what search terms to use. "Gray screen" "import avi" and "what the hell is going on?!" were failing me.
