    Why am I seeing a black frame with a big "X" through it

    rowby Level 1

      I am sure I have not had this problem before.

       

      But today when I tried to import a video file into AE (CS5 Windows), and added it to a new composition, the result in the composition was this big black frame with an "X" in it -- and it is also not the aspect ratio of the orginal footage (which is 1440 x 1080.

       

      I tried adding the file into an existing AE project with no problem.

       

      WHen I click on the MOV file itself, the video shows fine (but also at a narrow aspect ratio -- not 1440 x 1080)

      BTW My compositon settings are 1440 x 1080

       

      Any suggestions?

       

      Thanks,
