Well upon trying to import .mov or .avi files into VideoWrap! it isn't having it. Visionlab exports/imports it right, After Effects exports/imports it right. The message shown is.



And the file as seen in the documents (left) and the files propeties (right)



I have the latest Quicktime, done a re-install, done a clean re-install and swore at it. Nothing works. Any ideas?

Is it perhaps uncompressed? If I recall, Videowrap doesn't work with uncompressed footage (don't ask me why).

Hmm it could be. Although I did try importing a compressed 'Cinepak Codec by Radius' and althought it let me get to the point where you chose your VideoWrap! option, once the VideoWrapping! began on frame 1 it cut out and the message appeared again.

The only time I get that message is when I try to import uncommpressed video, only downside to VideoWrap... But this is probably what your problem is.

Yeah, well if it is then we should all force feed VideoWrap! uncompressed footage till it accepts smile

Anyway, minor update, footage has been sent to the team so awaiting feedback on whether it's the footage specifically.

It's using a proprietary DVCPRO codec, which is why it isn't working. Try changing it to quicktime animation codec.
