I'm trying to open a project I made in CS3 and even when I save it in CS5, when it opens it says "After Effects error:file 'wisp.mov' cannot be imported -- this'.mov' file is damaged or unsupported. I have the full version of CS5 with all the extra codecs installed. I've tried reinstalling After Effects and Quicktime. I tried converting wisp.mov, but that didn't work either.

What do you mean by "all the extra codecs"? Some codec packs cause more harm than good. Can you provide more details about what format "wisp.mov" is in to begin with? Also, what procedure did you use to transcode the file (i.e. - to what codec did you translate it)?
Ok, those shouldn't theoretically pose any problems, but how about an answer to the other questions?
To be more specific, what codec what "wisp.mov" using originally, and to what codec did you try to transcode it?
Try converting to a Quicktime movie using the "animation" codec at best quality. I'm not sure if I've ever seen a .png compressed file wrapped in an .avi with a .mov suffix....that seems to be asking for trouble.
