I'm giving cs6 master suite a try and have liked it so far but can't get clips to link in Premiere Pro to After Effects. I right click on the clip in my timeline and select "Replace with After Effects Composition" then I get an error pop up "The Reporter reported a generic error." I've tried restarting the programs. Restarting the computer. And still getting the error. Can anyone help me figure out how to fix this?
Still getting this error anyone know how I can fix it?
If you're on windows, the obvious answer would have been "install quicktime". But the fact that it went away after your suite re-install makes me think that (if you are on win) you DID have QT installed the whole time and it just wasn't initializing properly... or something like that.
Anyways, it's unfortunate that you had to do all that (I know how long a master collection install takes) but I'm glad it worked out in the end. Happy editing!
Beause there are known problems on windows with quicktime not installed, and at least one involving that exact error. In fact, if you launch AE on win that way, it should be telling you that some features may not work correctly without quicktime... or something like that. Plus, you'd need quicktime installed if you want to view a lot of the files that come in a .mov wrapper (like hd mpeg's off a 'still' camera). I always recommend installing quicktime if you plan to do video work on windows, unless there is some reaon you absolutely can't.

I do get that warning, (which I wish you'd take away unless someone is actually using a QuickTime file). But it all works well afterwards.

I've actually found that not to be the case. CS6 works just fine with my Nikon D7000 MOV files without having QuickTime installed. (I like that.)

Funny that. Given all the issues with QuickTime, I always recommend people avoid it like the plague, and completely remove that foul Mac thing from their pristine Windows system.
PrPro is able to handle some of the more common mov-supported codecs (DV, H264, some MPEG types) on its own, so that's why you can playback some, but NOT ALL mov files on windows without quicktime installed. Quicktime is not a requirement to run PrPro on windows, which is why you have been able to work without it. But if you want full feature support and optimal performance, it is highly recommended that you install quicktime on windows. That's not my opinion, it's an official Adobe statement:
"QuickTime 7.6.6 software required for QuickTime features"
But if you want full feature support and optimal performance, it is highly recommended that you install quicktime on windows.
I agree with Harm. It should read:
"If you absolutely have to use the debilitating QuickTime format on Windows, you will unfortunately need to install QuickTime. Take note, however, that using .mov files can actually decrease performance and quality. You're better off not using or even installing QuickTime on your Windows system if you can at all help it."
