Chapter 2. Importing Footage into a Project > Importing Unrecognized Files

Importing Unrecognized Files

Sometimes After Effects doesn't immediately recognize a file even though it's been saved in a format the program supports. An unrecognized file will not appear in the Import File dialog box—not even when you select All Acceptable Files from the File Type pull-down menu (Figure 2.32). This can happen if the file was transferred from another platform—an SGI workstation, for example—which saved the file in a compatible format but didn't use the same “creator codes” that your computer uses to recognize the file. Fortunately, you can manually specify the format of files you want to import.

Figure 2.32. Unrecognized files do not appear in the Import File dialog box.
