    AE CS5 animation codec not playable?


      So, I recently upgraded to CS5.5 and I have been rendering my clips out of AE using either lossless or lossless with alpha (both use the animation codec). Some of my clips rendered and played just fine, while others rendered but show only a quicktime icon and doesn't play or import into anything. It's like the information is there but it's corrupt somehow. The only common thread I can figure out to detemine whether it will work or not is based on the length of my clip. Any of my clips that were 20 seconds or longer did not work. But all my clips under 15 seconds worked perfectly! There is some magic number between 15-20 seconds that cause my renders to not be playable. Has ANYONE had this problem or is there a known bug concerning the animation codec? I've searched and couldn't find anything similar. Please HELP!!
