I have a project with hundreds of h.264 videos, some of which are only 1 or 2 frames in length. When I try to import these short files, AE freezes and I have to force quit the application.
I have a project file created with an older version of After Effects with these files already imported, and AE CC can't open these files, and hangs whenever I access any comps with the files in them. This was not a problem with the previous version of AE, and I've temporarilly gotten around the issue by running a trial of AE CS 5.5, but I don't have a serial for it and the trial is going to expire soon. I'm not sure what the problem is. Is there a way to correct this problem?
I'm using macbook pro, with OS 10.9.2, and all Adobe CC software is up to date.
Transcode your files to a frame based codec or an image sequence with the Adobe Media Encoder. It is probably thi intra frame encoding on the MPEG clips that is causing problems.
The same issue appears to happen when I try importing a small sampling of these files into Media Encoder. After dragging the files over, the program just beachballs, doesn't appear to be importing the files, and the program is not responding.
