I happen to do a lot of importing into AE of swf files. And I also run the Windows XP version of iTunes. Recently, having got sick of the messages asking if i wanted to update iTunes, i updated. There’s some bug in QT 7.1.3 which now prevents After Effects importing flash files.
Maybe I just got unlucky, maybe my PC is set up in a unique way, but I wanted to warn others thinking of updating, that they may need to uninstall then trawl through the Apple website to find the older versions of QT.
Taking no chances, I now have QT 6.5 working fine. My colleague is using 7.0.3 with no problems either,
