problem improting HD footage into AE

Hello,
after reinstalling whole system (and doing it very carefully - just necessary software) I am no longer able to import HD footage into After Effects (and PPro as well). I tried 1920x1080 uncompressed, Blackmagic 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 files and unfortunately even Tiff or any other sequence of pictures. After Effects just do nothing after import, PPro says that format is not supported. I have never seen this behaviour before. Any SD files and Cineform Aspect HD files are imported OK.
(HD files are not corrupted, they are playing in Mediaplayer OK)
Is it possible it has something with Cineform plugin?
I've noticed that AE always shows "Cineform AVI" instead just "AVI" in save dialogue window.
Thanks for any advice...

My config: Dual Xeon, XP sp2, Adobe Video Collection 2.5, Decklink HD Pro 4:4:4 (5.4 drivers), Aspect HD (3.4)

Michael, thanks for your reply. But this post was actualy mine. It is about an old issue which I thought is solved. Before reinstallation I didn't experience anything like this.

Hi Jaromir, I believe from what you describe this is still the case, if cineform avi comes up. When you reinstalled it, it put the CFHDIO.aex plugin back into AE, check it just for kicks

Michael, I tried to unistall entire Cineform with no success. Strange is, that AE still interpretes imported Cineform AVI as 1440x1080 1.33 Cineform Aspect Ratio. Any other HD reels fail to import...

Problem solved

No BM nor Cineform issue. Just bad (Eastern Europian) characters in filenames. Something left unchecked during XP installation. Never seen before. Anyway, thanks to everyone...
