Hi there,

When we are going back a forth between the editor, 3D app and Compositor we always used uncompressed QT reference files to keep the best quality. Is there any reason why VideoWrap doesn't support uncompressed files?

I am exporting from AVID using Quicktime Reference = which can be read in all other software except VideoWrap.

I get the same erro after editing in After effects and exporting the files to uncompressed AVI - they are till not compatible.

My files are 1280x720 in resolution.

Any ideas?

I've experienced the same before and I believe it to be because at current Vwrap doesn't support uncompressed formats. (I may be wrong, though I think the situation differs between mac and pc versions).

Since I am working with dv footage I've been exporting between programs as dv avi which works fine within Vwrap. Is that a plausible workaround for you?

I believe we had some audio sync issues with uncompressed footage, so we've taken that format offline for now while we fiddle with it. Sorry about that!
