Hello all, I recently downloaded the free learning version of the Houdini software from sidefx.com. I am following a project that requires Houdini, however when I get to the part where I need After Effects I get this error when I try to open the Houdini Rendered .tiff sequences. after effects: aegp plugin tiffio: error reading tiff data ( 5027 :: 12) Is there something I am doing wrong or can this be resolved? I tried to get an answer from the people who did the tutorial but they had no answer for me. Any help would be appreciative. The project by the way is the Ghostbusters' proton stream, the four part tutorial can be found on youtube.com by searing proton stream or authority fx. Thanks!
It would help us if we knew a little about your system. OS, version of AE. It would also help if we knew what kind of tiff file you were working with. Without downloading the sequence it's hard to say. If you convert the tiff to a png do you get the same error? There's obviously some kind of a conflict or missing codec. Without knowing anything about your system I'm lost.
Windows 7, AE CS6. I haven't tried a conversion to png yet.
Read the blurb here, then make up your mind:
As Rick said, converting to anotehr format (or another flavor of TIFF) is proably the only solution. If you can provide a file from your sequence, we might be able to verify and further diagnose the problem.
