i try doing that thing were u interpret the footage but it puts it down to 9 minutes it is making me very mad. any help would be very apreaiated
I don't know what you are doing, what kind of footage, what version of AE, what the original footage was, where you are trying to go. As sergeant Schultz said, "I know nothing." Without knowing anything about your project I can't help.
As Rick sdaid, we know nothing about your footage, nothing aboput your system, nothing about anything, including which version of AE you are using. Your post is therefore positively useless. That aside...:
We need to know a lot more if we're going to help you. Please provide answers to the questions listed here: "FAQ: What information should I provide when asking a question on this forum?"
I have AE CS6 with the latest update, Windows 7 , it is a H.264 mp4 file, it is a clip that i record with Arc Soft Showbiz (Hauppauge HD PVR program), it is 1.58 GB file size, i am trying to cut the clip for a friend and when i import it into after effects, it gives me the error meassage. if i make it a compostition, it pops up and i click "ok" and it pops of non stop and i have to go to task manager and end the task cuz i cant close it
Mylenium's error message list says that this error can be caused by bad frame rates. Your comp shows a frame rate of something like 59.890, which is a totally fictional frame rate. If you can play the clip back in some sort of player AND export the clip -- a new one -- in a different frame rate, you might get some luck. Acceptable prame rates are 59.94 or 60. Personally, I'd go with 59.94.
how and what program could ii use to import it and the export it i have sony vegas pro 12 but it gets a weird error as well when i try to cut the clips just for the info all the clips are for some reason recording in different framerates even tho my Arc Soft Show Biz says it records them in 60 fps (2nd picture will show that) and all the clips get that error not just that clip
Whatever your tool says, it probably isn't recording at the framerate it claims. AE is drawing that info from the embedded streamflags of your H.264 and this is usually pretty correct. Tend to agree with Dave. This probably is the sole source of your issue. You really should consider mangling your clips through an ffmpeg encoder like Handbrake or MPEG streamclip to conform it to something usable and fix those inconsistencies.
