Media100i v 8.2.3 & After Effects
on May 9, 2006 at 11:44:09 am

Hi guys,

I have just done a clean install of OS-X 10.3.9, Media 100 8.2.3, After Effects 6.5.1, and Quicktime 7.0.4.

I am happy to see that the latest version of Media100i brings software rendering as a default to AE. However if I try to use Media 100 as a video preview option, then any action in After Effects brings the error "resource not found (-192)". The only way out is to force-quit.

Are there any fixes for this? Or is video-preview through Media 100 not an option....

Thanks,

Chris Zwar

You have to download V8.2.3a, which fixes this bug.

Hi Floh,

Thanks for the quick response.

I did install 8.2.3a, although the "a" was only mentioned in the download file name and installer. The "about Media100i" splash still shows 8.2.3 with no a. But the disk image etc. definitely says 8.2.3a.

The problem in After Effects occurs when you use media 100 clips while also having media 100 set as the video preview device. After Effects seems to work fine with Media 100 as the video preview device as long as you're not using media 100 clips as well. In addition to the "resource not found (-192)" error, when you force-quit After Effects it won't launch again (you get an "adm floater" error message).

So I can think of a few possibilities - 1) You simply can't use media 100 as a video preview device while also using media 100 clips, or 2) The bug wasn't completely fixed in 8.2.3a, or 3) The download at the media 100 site is wrong and although it's called 8.2.3a, it's actually still 8.2.3. I doubt the last one, but I would expect the "about media 100i" splash to say 8.2.3a...


Any suggestions?

Thanks again,

-Chris

I haven't heard or seen your issue, I actually did a lot of the testing with the plug in, I do not have any other users reporting it. I will keep an eye out for a resolution. The reason the splash doesn't say 8.2.3 (a) is because our build system doesn't allow for it. We didn't feel the changes warranted a 8.2.4. In retrospect it would have been less confusing if we had just called it 8.2.4. I'll never let it happen again.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the reply.

I have tried un-installing and re-installing Quicktime v7.04, and Media 100 8.2.3a, but I still have the same problem. FWIW, I have just replaced a faulty system harddrive in an old G4, so I have reinstalled everything from scratch.

I'll simply not use the video preview function in AE, the video preview function in last version of Media 100 that was installed here didn't work at all so this is still an improvement... and I'm very happy about the software rendering.

But any suggestions will always be welcome,

-Chris.

Chris,

I would remove all Media 100 related plugins from YourHardDrive->Library->QuickTime folder and from the YourHomeFolder->Library->QuickTime folder, including the "instantMediaOSX.lib" and the various Media 100 components and the Transcoder. It sounds like something went wrong during your installation, so you should delete these files and reinstall V8.2.3a again.
