media100 and after effects
on Feb 27, 2006 at 11:20:41 pm

upgraded to media 100, 8.2.3, Tiger, and QT 7 - everything seemed to work fine- tested media 100 worked perfect, was really happy that media 100/ boris updated . I hit the software update went to 10.4.5, and bang only blue screen, computer never made it to login, ran the utilities drives were fine finally uninstalled 10.4.5 and went back to 10.4 computer is working fine now will figure out that conflict later ( i think it might be m100). My problem now is with after effects, qt 7.0.4 pro is installed I can not get any video preview through media 100 in after effects, with 8.2.2 i could get a quick preview before the m-100 ae conflict would crash.
Now with both ae 7 and 6.5 I get the following after efects warning: Couldn't open Quicktime video output component. I reinstalled quicktime and still this is happening. My computer is a mirrored door dual 1gig g4
os is 10.4 anyone else having problems with 10.4.5 and after effects video preview?
thanks

im not having any issues only because i didnt know the video out preview function worked with media100 board. At least since we installed the codecs, that is. Is it still possible to get a video preview from after effects to the media100 card? this would help because all i can do now is prewiew through firewire and the gamma is way off, so it is kind of pointless.

you can do it with 8.2.2 but be careful, before you do the video preview preference in ae save your project also you may want to set up your render que- i will explain in a minute, turn off auto save, next, set up the video preview preference. for m100 preview normally keep it quick 2 to 3 minutes at most - turn off video preview preference and save (if you save or quit before turning off video preview preference) ae may crash when you try to reopen it, and the only way to reopen is to throw away your ae preferences: chances are about fifty percent if you try to adjust an asset you will get an error code, i would get a 192. Save quit and reststart ae (you did turn off media 100 video preview preference prior). The reason i set up the render que prior to video preview sometimes if i get the 192 error and the project is good to render it may render it may render even if the 192 error popped up. hope this helps, i'm sure someone else may have a better solution.

[gmfguy] "you can do it with 8.2.2 but be careful,"

I never saw problems like this when using the Software Codec. There were problems with preview and hardware codec, but after Media 100 released the software codec we never saw these again.

I have 2 systems that are doing the exact same thing.
With a clean install on a fresh drive of 10.4.5 and QT 7.0.4 pro and 8.2.3, I am not
getting the preview in AE 6.5 or 7.0. Same error "Could not open video component"
Works fine in 8.2.2.

I tried installing the M100 codecs, no luck either, it appears that the software
codec is automatically installed with a fresh 8.2.3 install.

A problem I also have, if you could try in M100, (export from edit suite) ipod 320x240
I get a parameter error on all timelines.

Systems- dual mirror door and G5 2.7 dual with expansion, P6000's
Thanks

Yes, it seems like the V8.2.3 VOUT component is not working. To avoid that you could do the following workaround (I haven

Tried replacing the VOUT from 8.2.2 - no success.

Then tried replacing all M100 QT elements from 8.2.2 - no success.

Only thing left was the M100 Daemon from 8.2.2, - that worked.

The preview is back in all AE versions with the M100 Daemon from 8.2.2.

The export to IPOD still doesn't work. It does about 8 or 9 frames and then errors out.

Hi,

We are looking into the AfterEffects and iPod issue. We now install the software codecs instead of the hardware codecs for Media 100 i 8.2.3. This is probably the reason why A/E is not seeing our V-out component, although we are still investigating why.
I'll post more information shortly.

Re: the Ipod issue, It appears (on my system at least) to be an audio issue. I can successfully export if there is no audio (or if the audio checkbox is un-ticked in the export options), but get the param error crash if there is.

Hope that helps.
