I am trying to work with some EX-1 108024p footage that has been converted to quicktime XDCAM EX codec using the transfer tool for FCP. Now I am getting this display error that quicktime doesn't exhibit.

Here is what it looks like in AE:


It also looks the same in media encoder.

Any ideas on why Adobe can't handle this footage? This problem is new to CS5, since this has been a workflow I've used in the past with CS4 and below.

Looks like a codec/card issue - search the forum for problems generated by Aja cards and codecs if you have one of those. If you don't, hang in there, someone will have an answer.

Hi Brandon,

Got exactly the same issue, but it appeared after upgrading AE CS5 from 10.0.0 to 10.0.1 version (10.0.1.19). I haven't had this issue before that with out of box install. Reason for updating was my frustration over speed of rendering... Researched a couple posting related to 32 bit versus 64 bit mode of MAC OSX, and I was hoping Adobe's update could fix that. Well, looks like rendering performance issue has gone, but now I can't use my workflow any more... Exactly the same green pixelization... Did you manage to resolve this somehow?

I Have the same exact problem when encoding both H.264 and FLV, it seems like Adobe Media Encoder doesn't decode the mov-file correctly, as is in the source window shows the frames as green, pixelated and garbled as in the above screenshot.

I wonder if the past 6 months have provided some solution?

I am running Adobe Media Encoder 5.0.1.0 (64-bit) on a MacBookPro 2.53 GHz Intel Core i5 with 4GB memory.
OS: OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8

This is also messing up my workflow, and I fear going back to using Apple Compressor for making my h.264-files

Hope we figure this out!
