how import video to AS and don't get a broken icon

Post by cocoOS » Thu Mar 22, 2012 12:11 am

Hi..I'm trying import an animation for copy the movement but everytime than I try I get an icon with a broken sign..I've tried several formats, flv, mpeg, avi, etc..and always happen the same, only can see the animation than I did in AS and exported like video...I don't know if it is related about the mocap, because appear a little red circle in the center and I can expand, move, etc...but my animation doesn't appear, only a broken symbol....

Mind showing a picture? (ctrl+alt+Print Screen, if using windows). I don't know what you mean by broken icon.

That "broken" icon only means that AS can't find the file.

If the video file format is correct (see manual for reference), see if it's named correctly. AS is known to have trouble with non-ASCII-7-characters (like the german äöüß).

Try installing QUICKTIME, if you have it already, make sure its the most recent version by re-installing it. This helps sometimes. If possible, upload a 10 sec clip of the video to a file share site so we can check it on our end.

I don't think can be a problem with quicktime because it's an avi video, and yesterday I've installed a codec pack without luck...try if you can see it...:):)

It plays fine for me. Try what I said, even though it sounds stupid, it has been known to work. Or try to re-install Anime Studio.

I cant get it to load into As either. There is a problem with the codec you used.

Where did you get that video? There is something wrong with it.

Inspecting the fourcc header indicates that this uses "DIVX = OpenDivx v4" codec. You'll need to install this codec on your system in order for to play/use it.

It will play on VLC but no where else. So I just converted it for him and uploaded a link.
