Additional Comments

Installer boots right up, then after selecting an installation language, it disappears, and takes about two minutes to load, after it loads, it reappears and installation goes fast. For QuickTime Support you'll need to install QuickTime 7.5.5 or earlier. Avi import seems limited to Uncompressed RGB. AE doesn't crash when trying to import unsupported .avi files, it'll just display an unsupported codec message. Ram preview of audio freezes up on repeat. This seems to be the only issue not related to file support. Disabling repeat during ram preview remedies this issue. Import of .mp3 and .wav muxed with video don't seem to have any issues. After some research it would seem mp3/wav issues in After Effects are common across platforms. Both Mac, and PC users have reported similar audio issues in versions of After Effects as recent as CS3. Here's some links to similar issues and workarounds ( ( It would seem for standalone audio, converting mp3/wav to a .mov, .mp4 or .wma is your best bet. With a few quick fixes After Effects 6.5 is fully functional with a few common file support issues. Rinse, wash, repeat, results may vary.
