Windows 8 Proffesional 64x
klite codec pack
Seriously, this simply is an experimental configuration with possibly not yet polished GPU drivers compounded by using a CoDec pack known to cause damage to Adobe's own CoDecs. The straight up answer is: Install Win 7 until Adobe greenlight Win 8 or issue a compatibility updtae/ patch (or nVidia have a handle on their drivers) and never even dream of reinstalling K-Lite in any shape or form.
I also tried running in Windows 7 compatabilitymode, so I doubt that's the problem..
Your screen shot reveals that you don't have any layers in the comp and you haven't imported any footage into the AE project. Thus, you're looking at the background, which currently has a default color of white.
If you "just got yourself" AE, you need to know that it's tough to use it intuitively. No, make that impossdible: there are just too many gotchas in the application.
You should really go here first before you try to use AE. No fooling. Save yourself a lot of grief.
I know, ive been using AAE 4, 5, 5.5 for quite some time and I've been an editor for 2+years now. So i can get around with the the program.
And as i stated in the first post, I tried importing footage, making a new composition, the stuff that I usually do in After Effects however it just doesnt work. And gives me a blank screen instantly.
Heres the proof that it doesn't work even when importing footage:
If theres a way to change that backgroundcolour, please tell me how to.
Thanks for your effort!
To change the default background color, open the Comp Settings for any comp, and you should be able to figure out how to change it.
More importantly, Mylenium makes a good point: you may be running Win 7 compatibility mode, but that doesn't guarantee that it will run properly with AE. You really should be on Win 7.
Until Adobe clears it, I wouldn't use Win 8.
Thanks, when can i expect this to happen, or how long does this usually take for Adobe to add support?
There is typically no set time period for such things from Adobe. Suffiece it to say that if you're serious enough about using AE, it probably will be long enough to make it worth your time to go back to Win 7.
I'm surprised that you got other applications to run well on Win 8. NLE's and other serious media apps are pretty picky about such things.
