I'm trying to import some Action Essentials stock footage (PNG codec) in to my project but After Effects just stalls for a long time then gives the error
- file ‘[file name].mov’ cannot be imported – this ‘MooV’ file is damaged or unsupported.
I did some research and saw this thread by Todd Kopriva. It mentions deleting codec files from the ~/Library/Quicktime folder, but I have a more recent version of OSX, and this folder no longer exists because codecs apparently work differently now.
Does anyone know what I need to do?
I have the most recent version of After Effects CC, if it helps. The update that came out a few days ago.
Hi Szalam, the codec solutions that provides is outdated, sadly none of it applies to the latest versions of Mac OS. There is no longer a Quicktime codec folder in the Library.
Oh, right, darn.
What happens if you create a QuickTime file using the PNG codec yourself?
Does Premiere Pro import the file you're trying to work with?
What about Adobe Media Encoder?
