What happens when you try to replace the footage? What is the original footage format, and the new footage format?
it just wont allow me to click on replace footage. i downloaded a downloadable intro from the internet then used maxon cinema to put my name in then i went to Ae went to replace the old template with the new and it will not allow me to.
it might be because theres a message that comes up when i open it saying you must convert from 12.2(macintosh) or the original file will be unchanged
Nobody can tell you anything without proper system info or other technical details. Your information is vague, confusing and hugely incomplete.
