"Can’t edit MP4 in After Effects: Over the last few weeks, I have collected a "ton" of .mp4 videos copied from a Canon EOS R50 to hard drive folders with the intention of editing in After Effects some day. Unfortunately, today when I import them into After Effects, I get an unsupported error. Is there a work-around to solve the issue?"

How to Get After Effects/Vegas Pro Work Beautifully with Canon EOS R50 MP4 Files? These are the problems that camera users often encounter. The main reason is that the computer hardware is not strong enough and the compatibility of video editing software is not strong. My workflow is to copy the original Canon EOS R50 MP4 media with all the original folder and files structure into folders within my project structure and import from there. Everything goes well. In your case, I would assume you only copied the loose .mp4 clips without keeping the folder structure. If that’s the case, you will need to convert Canon EOS R50 MP4 files first for a fluid workflow in After Effects and Vegas Pro.
