[BUG] DNx Codecs No Longer Supported?
ISSUE: As of v18.4, DNx Codecs no longer work properly in AE (as well as Media Encoder and possibly others). For example, a known good (works in other programs, as well as older versions of AE) DNxHR HQ video with Alpha will appear completely black.
REPRODUCTION: Import a DNx video file, for example DNxHR HQ with alpha channel into After Effects.
WORKAROUND: Rolling back to v18.2.1 works as a workaround, but is not viable long-term or with remote teams.
SYSTEM INFO: This issue has occurred on various Windows-based machines of various capabilities. Some of the editors on my team who have reported the issue to me may be working on a Mac, but I am not sure.
SUGGESTED FIX: See what changed in regards to DNx codecs from v18.2 to v18.4, restore DNx codec support in next After Effects update. Look into issues with Media Encoder and other applications as well.
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we are moving this feedback forum to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests will be able to live separately in that forum. If you have an item here that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!

Same problem receiving DNx assets from Davinci on a PC to Adobe suite on a Mac. No support in Premiere, Media Encoder, or After Effects

Do you confirm you are on Windows to test this ? What about After Effects 2022 BETA ?
