hello,
my first post here looking for some advice for a relative newbie. I can view quicktime files (.mov) in quicktime player on pc, I can EXPORT quicktime in render queue, but when trying to IMPORT the file ( a full HD overlay grain) it comes up with error message unsupported or corrupt file. The file is fine it plays in vlc and quicktime player.

So anyone know a solution? Is there another format I could convert the file to which will retain alpha layers and quality so I can apply this grain effect?

Thanks,
Jason

When you made your file what codec did you select. Also what version of AE are you using? Did you render locally or across a network(I sometimes have issues with this and QT)

Hi thanks for the reply,
I actually have managed to correct it. I was missing the avid codec and now its installed everything working good :).

Cheers

Glad you figured it out. Avid Codecs are pretty good---make sure you step into all the options to turn on Alpha channels for the codec.
