What kind of avi? There are hundreds, maybe thousands of types. What Codec? What version of AE and What OS down to the last decimal point? Has AE ever worked? Will AE import any other kind of movie? You might as well have asked "Why is watermelon?"
after effects is newly installed Creative cloud version...and my OS is windows 8.
The wierd part is that the two avi-files are exactly the same a part from the file sizes..
one is on 3 mb and it works fine
the other is 30 mb and crashes. Same everything a part from the filesize...
The file that crashes could be corrupted, it could have a different type of audio compression, it could have a different codec. Again, What kind of avi? There are hundreds of codecs. Where did the file come from? What kind of error messing? What about the crash log?
You are still asking "Why is watermelon?" There is no answer until you tell us more about your problem.
OK. I check the details when i get back.....the files is rendered animations... Same animation only quality differences... But i'll look into it.
As far as i know for now it sais "AE not responding" when i imoort it.
thanks for your reply
