You updated to QT 7.4.5. You need to go back to 7.4.3 or so.
But it's not a universal issue.
Our systems are working fine with QT 7.4.5.
i've heard that some people have fixed this by checking the 'show legacy codecs' option in the qt preferences....
I question this a little though, since i thought that just enabled exporting to those codecs, not reading them... hmmm
There is nothing wrong with 7.4.5. (on Macs, anyway). You may have an incomplete / truncated installation of QT. Are you Mac or PC?

Yes, of course, but it's easy these days to blame Apple and that just presented itself as an opportunity to do so once more. ;-) Anyway, whatever is the deeper reason for the problems, a QT re-install is the way to go. I also recommend temporarily removing any unnecessary CoDecs from the ProApplications (if you are on a Mac and use FCP Studio) as these have a tendency to get in the way. The same would apply to any hardware CoDecs for your capture card (if you use one).
are you running xp 64bit pro?
if so right click on the AE shortcut - properties - uncheck compatibility mode. This fixed the same problem on our systems :)
Thanks for the replies,
Just to clear up, I'm running xp32.AE CS3 latest update etc.
Not using any hardware card, just a matrox parhelia. All been fine for years.
I've reinstalled QT 7.4.5 and no joy.
I've checked the AE compatability mode and it's not being used.
And I can find no mention in the QT preferences for "show legacy mode"
I will now try a roll back of QT although I'm not sure how to.
Mylenium you seem to be right.
I Uninstalled QT, rebooted.
found a useful website "oldapps.com" downloaded QT 7.4.1
installed and everything is hunky Dory.
