PS CS4 error

 So I'm getting the "could not complete your request because it is not the right kind of document" error when I try to open a video to make a gif. 

Things I've tried:

  • I've got the latest version of Quicktime
  • I've converted the avi videos to mp4 using a program, then changed the file type to mov
  • I've converted the newly converted mp4 files to mov files using a program
  • They open if I do the "file > import > video frames to layers" method, but they won't open when I try "file > open"
  • I've looked through the tags here (which is where I learnt to convert to mp4 and change to mov) but no joy :(
I would really appreciate any suggestions!

Screen Capping programs?

Hi, 

I was wondering if anyone could give me some recommendations for a Screen Capping program. I've been using the Print Screen button on my keyboard up to now then cropping them in GIMP, so I really don't have any idea about them :)

Are there any good programs that are free and can be downloaded from the internet?

Thanks in advance!
