Issue with playing exported MOV file in After Effects...

Recommended Posts

Hello;

When I export a flipbook as a Quicktime file (MPEG4 codec), After Effects can't read it and makes error displayed in image bellow.

(VLC player, plays my file without any problem).

 

Any idea?

 

Thanks.

A keyframe every frame? That kind of defeats the purpose of MPEG.

Try using the Animation codec, instead.

it is better to avoid the Apple mp4 implementation. Choose h264 instead.
this is the codec used by mp4 but in a quicktime container. (Mp4 is not a codec but  a container). This work with AE.
And as Atom pointed out, if you don't want temporal interpolation, but still some compression use photojpg (animation is losless but a bit heavy IMO)
