CS5.5 conversion?
on Aug 22, 2011 at 9:42:04 pm

I just upgraded to CS5.5. I had a project that had avi files in them. They played okay in CS5 but when I try to play them in CS5.5, I get the message, "unkown file format or file is damaged." I have clicked on the file itself and it works. Any suggestions for correcting this situation.

Enjoy life, this is not a rehearsal

Have you tried Importing the old CS5 project into a new CS5.5 project, rather than opening the old CS5 project in CS5.5?

I have tried importing the avi file and still get the same error message. I have opened the project within CS5.5 and also clicked on a project file to initiate Premiere Pro. Same result.

My computer Guru asked me where did the avi file come from. I told him it was Newtek's Lightwave animation program. He told me to uninstall the program and then reinstall. It worked. Evidently I had installed Lightwave before I installed CS5. Since Lightwave was already on the computer when I installed CS5.5, CS5.5 didn't see it. I'm sure there is a more technical way of putting it. All I know is, the avi files from Lightwave can now be used in CS5.5.

More likely Lightwave has its own video codecs that get installed and somehow they were overwritten or removed when CS5.5 was installed.

WE recei8ved footage from a Tricaster a few months ago, and had to contact NewTek for the codecs, which they readily sent.
