Import movie into a container

Recommended Posts

I created an animation in Photoshop Extender CS4. I rendered it to several different video files; QuickTime movie and MPEG-4. When I try to insert any of these, I get this message in the container. ' The file cannot be found; StarField/galaxy.mp4"(or .mov). I can insert other movies obtained else where and I have compared file information and I see no difference. What' up with 'cannot be found' These videos are on the same hard drive as the FMP software & file I am trying to import into.

You might check the format by opening the file from Photoshop in Quicktime and re-exporting from Quicktime Pro. I couldn't tell you why FileMaker isn't seeing it, but at least you could verify or eliminate funky Photoshop export errors as the base problem.

Guess what I finally learned.

It makes a difference what the name of the folder holding the videos is named. The name cannot end with two or more periods, as in ... . For some reason FMP cannot read or 'see' inside said folder for a video. FMP can see an image or picture, though. Weird
