    unsupported file type (.mov)

    ekorad

      I am using Adobe After Effects CS4 (9...)

       

      I am trying to create Andrew Krammer's ,,crumble" effect (http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorial/procedural_crumble/)

      If you skip at 23:44 you will see that he is adding an imported .mov file.

       

      Everytime i try to import a .mov file, i get the following error: After Effects error: Can't import file "NAME.mov": unsupported file type or extension.     ( 0::1 )

      I think I have what I need: QuickTime 7.7.1 (it's the latest version I found, right from Apple's website)

      (I don't know if this really helps:) When i click File>Export> QuickTime is disabled, not selectable. It says: QuickTime 7.4.1 or later required (even though i have 7.7.1)

       

      I do not really want to convert the .mov into anything else because I saw that the .mov file (from Andrew Krammer's video) don't display the background, only the dust (in my case). Other video types DO display the black background. The files I try to import to AE work (they can be opened with QuickTime, no errors)
