Ogg is the video format that will be used for HTML5 video in Firefox, Opera, and Chrome.

It uses the Vorbis audio codec and Theora video codec. with the .ogg file extension.

I am currently using After Effects CS4 but plan to upgrade to CS5 later this year.

Is there a way to make after effects support this video format?

Thanks!

I haven't worked with these kinds of files, but my gut says, "not without converting it first."

However, the ol' gut's been known to be wrong when working with exotic file formats. You can check the file types for yourself. Here's the list for AE 9:

...and for AE 10:

The problem with these large inter-frame compressed CODECs is that they are synchronous - ie. they encode and decode in the same manner. And their premise has been primarily for encoding, to retain a smallish filesize, accomplished through large inter-frame GOPs.

The trick is to have a large GOP-capable CODEC; BUT then decodes using small or non-existent GOPs - an asynchronous CODEC. With real-time algorithms widely available, this isn't so far fetched a paridigm. Coupled with hardware assists, this is what the industry and HTML5 needs (just to ensure that my mini rant fits into the thread-scope)

Sense make?
