You can just move or remove the duplicate plug-ins from the Adobe After Effects CS3\Support Files\Plug-ins (Windows) or Adobe After Effects CS3\Plug-ins (Mac OS) folder.
Regarding the OpenGL warning: Don't worry about it. You don't need OpenGL. Yes, it can speed some things up, but it also can cause some problems. If your OpenGL hardware isn't compatible with After Effects, don't sweat it. If you insist on trying to figure out exactly what's going on, you can start here: "Troubleshoot OpenGL problems with After Effects CS3"
I ok the errors have GONE.
So thats fixed.. the only thing that still isn't working is the audio..
I import it as a WAV file.. clikc play on it.. with the layer selected.. it shows it is playing but there is no audio?
Yeah that page is like an HOUR read..
And i didnt understand what it was telling me to do?
i looked on the audio panel thing in the top right and Its not picking up the audio?
I remember when i installed CS3 it said "does not support audio" or something like that?
Here are some excerpts from that page that you had trouble reading.
- To preview only audio from the current time, choose Composition > Preview > Audio Preview (Here Forward) or press the period key (.) on the numeric keypad.
- To preview only audio in the work area, choose Composition > Preview > Audio Preview (Work Area) or press Alt+period (.) (Windows) or Option+period (.) (Mac OS) on the numeric keypad.
Use RAM preview to play video and audioDo one of the following:
All works fine now,
Is there anyway of getting rid of the "open" error thing?
Turn it off in the preferences or completely delete the AE_OpenGL.aex plug-in from your Plug-Ins\Extensions sub-folder. What system are you on, anyway? If you can't even preview audio, you either have a serious misconfiguration or the system is severely underpowered (old notebook? netbook?).
