DPX color problems in After Effects (and a simple fix)

If you’re importing DPX files into After Effects, and the colors aren’t right, check out the fix in this new document that we just published on the Adobe Technical Support site:
“Colors from DPX file not correct in After Effects CS5 (Mac OS)”

The problem comes from Glue Tools installing a component into QuickTime that causes QuickTime attempt to handle the files, rather than the native After Effects DPX importer.

If this fix doesn’t work for you, or if you just want to read more details, then go to this thread in the After Effects user-to-user forum, where this problem was diagnosed:
“DPX import in CS5”.
