After I import certain movies, all I get is a bunch of random colored squares. It looks as if it is trying to render some movie but it can't quite get it right. I downloaded the matrox codec. Any other suggestions out there?

What are the file formats for the movies?
what codec?
what program are you trying to import them into?

Alamdv.

The problem is probably with your filetype. Alamdv only accepts .avi and .mov files. Make sure you export as one of these filetypes from your editing program.
