Solved - After Effects Won't Import MP4 Files

Looking to Import MP4 to After Effects? We all know that MP4 is supported by After Effects. However, many users have been facing issues when they try to import an MP4 file into After Effects. Why is this happening? And how to fix this issue? Well, you could be facing importing issues due to the MP4 file codec.

After Effects prefers H.264 and MPEG4 codecs, while MP4 is a container format that can hold various audio and video codecs. So if you receive an error message, or the video display is not proper, then you may have to install the codec used by the file. But then it’s not easy to find and install the codec.

Can After Effects Render MP4?

There is a way to get MP4 and After Effects to play well. You can convert the MP4 file to After Effects supported MPEG2 encoded MPG file format. And then transfer the converted .mp4 video to After Effects for edit. You need third-party software for help. There are many tools available out there. Choose a reliable one to convert.

The procedure is similar to almost all tools:

  • You need to download and install the software.
  • Then load MP4 files to the program, and click on Add Video button to import MP4 files. Or you can directly drag and drop them to the program.
  • Next, you should choose the output format, i.e MOV, MPEG2, or WMV.
  • The output videos will have the original quality of the MP4 video.
  • Finally, you need to hit on Convert button for the conversion process to begin.

Wait for some time. That’s it; your file is now converted to be used in After Effects. Now the file can be imported into After Effects CC/CS6/CS5, etc., for editing.

However, if the above procedure was not helpful enough to fix trouble importing MP4 in After Effects then there are high chances that your MP4 files are corrupt. Here’s how you can learn how to repair a corrupt MP4 file on Mac.
