Hello, i have just installed AE CS4 on my computer (Windows 7 64bit) and
i was trying to follow an basic intro tutorial to help me get started.
I opened a video file and when i played it the screen was black...
I tried to open different video files and run the program as admin but nothing helps.
I tried to google my issue but got no resolve.
Heres a screenshot:
I also use Maxon C4D R11.5 and never had any problems with the video...
Maybe theres problem with the codec?
And what kind of video is it exactly? AE doesn't do XVid or DivX and a number of otehr CoDecs. Similalrly, handling of AVCHD and H.264 was much less efficient in CS4 compared to CS5/ CS5.5... Things may just be the way they are and you may have to convert the file using another tools first....
First of all thanks for the feedback.
I used google to clear some things regarding AE's file compatitbility and such, so i guess problem was me being an AE noob.
Thanks again, Adobe rules
