I've imported a .m2t file in to After Effects CS3 and the first couple of video frames are missing, leaving the layer not starting where I want it to and also the audio out of sync.
There's also one of those red frames at the end of the composition too.
The same file is fine in Premiere Elements 3.0.
What's going wrong with after FX?
The stream contains open GOPs which are not correctly conformed by After Effects. It will therefore only use the next complete GOP. This may be a specific problem with your camera. AE should handle most such streams correctly. This issue may already be fixed in CS4, but you can still report it, just to make sure:
Thanks for that.
The file is 'force conformed' by Premiere to the same MPEG format (1080 HDV 25). So I'm not using the original file from the camera (a Sony FX1) and the new file has an m2t extension.
This new file plays from the beginning in Premiere but not After FX.
Any more ideas?
