Tell us a lot more about your movie and the things you did to your system. Is this a new problem? What did you change.
Randomly copying codecs into a library folder isn't a good idea ever. What exactly did you copy?
the movie was a prores render i made out of after effects on another box...same setup as what I had...originally i tried making a prores render using a preset i imported, only to realize I didnt have the prores codec...
I copied the codec from another machine to mine and then all hell ensued...i have a standard set of codecs I keep in my db that, if im ever on a machine, I can copy and replace and I know they work...however, when I copied them over it didnt work...
I thought I explained my problem pretty sufficiently in my original post...please reread and respond, thanks
If you don't have Final Cut or Motion installed on your new machine ProRez is not going to work.
again, if you had been reading, im able to use another box with the same setup...this machine does not have any apple pro video product, yet can play, import, and export prores without a problem...
its also pretty common knowledge that the .component codec files can be copied from one machine to another without problems...ive done it before, this is the first time i've ever had an issue...
you have proved that simply copying .component codec files does not always work. With no Apple pro video apps installed you're asking for trouble and the apple QT updates will not work.
I'd dig through some of the apple support communities to trouble shoot your QT error. I've never had the kind of trouble you are having so I'm not going to be able to give you much more help.
I got the same error on import, just happened now with a shutterstock clip (photo-jpeg) and yesterday a couple of times I got the same error also on export (photo-jpeg or prores). I also have final cut studio installed, and I work daily with photojpg and prores files, this error started to appear last week after I switched to CC (never had errors while on CS6).
UPDATE: After rebooting (mac/osx lion) the file is imported correctly.
I am having Quicktime import issues with AE CC as well but it's irregular so can't yet say if it's related. Also I'm getting "error reading frame from file" messages with QT files that are perfectly fine (and work fine in AE CS6), but again it's irregular. Somtimes a restart will solve the issue for a while, sometimes trashing the AE prefs will help for a while (but not always)...
Gonna have to investigate some more but for now I think I'll keep using CS6.
I am also experiencing these problems for the past two months now with my MAC OS10.8.5 running CC, and now I can no longer use AFTEREFFECTS CC due to this issue.
I have reverted back to CS6, though still get the issue of "Error (04) reading frame from file ... ( 86 ::2 )" which means I have to reset, then I can work for 5-10 minutes, then the error happens again.
Very frustrating! I can see this error is similar across these forums, however no forum thread ends in a solution. Can you please provide an update to what is going on here please and let us know that the problem has been recognised?
Consequently, these issues started around the time I installed DaVinci Resolve on my system, though removing that solftware has not solved the issue (and it is intregal to our workflow here anyway).
