I keep getting the error message "Your chosen source video is incompatible with Videowrap. Please choose another." The problem is the file is an uncompressed avi that I exported from AE 6.5, I had the same problem a week ago with an uncompressed file from Visionlab. So is there a patch I can get or something?

VideoWrap does not work with uncompressed video files. It should work with just about anything else, though.

Okay thanks, do you know if that will be added in future updates?

Yeah, will it? Bacause VideoWrap! itself asks to chose best quality footage, for best results, and then it prevents me to choose that best quality source. So in order to compress something using VW!, I need to compress it first with something else (I work on uncompressed files). Makes little sense to me really.

So don't get me wrong - VW! is a great idea - to solve those different format problems. I would just wish it's enough for compressing, without using other apps. I would personaly put uncompressed footage compatibility in a first place on my list of important updates. Just before using DVD movies format wink
