importing video files
on Aug 14, 2009 at 11:46:39 pm

Just bought a "used" AE 6.5 for Windows standard software.

Am attempting to import video files from my camera/hard drive.

Camera footage is in the .MOV file format name.

The AE 6.5 HELP says that 6.5 supports .mov

Is .mov different than .MOV ?

AE 6.5 will NOT import these files, but my AE Version 4 will.

Anybody know why this is happening?

Is your AE 4 on the same machine? It sounds like a missing codec. QuickTime is a wrapper (.mov) that can use a wide variety of codecs, not all of them standard, or even crossplatform. Sounds like your camera records to some codec that needs to be installed on your system.
