Cannot view xdv2 codec files in After Effects

Help!

I had a bunch of HD clips sent to me that used the xdv2 codec, and After Effects CS4 will not read them. I have an older version of FCP, so I'm thinking that is the problem. I don't want to shell out the 1k for new FCP until I exhaust all other options. I also cannot view .mov files encoded with the HDV2 codec.

This is an urgent matter - thanks in advance for the quick response.

i believe that is one of the xdcam variants (maybe the 1080i60, 35mb/s, but i'm not sure).

the xdcam codecs do come with fcp7 (they might actually be part of the 7.0.1 update), but if you can get the latest applempeg-2codec.component and put it in library/quicktime you should be able to read the files in any quicktime based application, accept maybe quicktime x (haha).

since it is most likely a fcp codec, you might try posting in the fcp forum, they may be able to give you more info, or options to convert those files...
