Can After Effects CC import AVI files?

From above listed After Effects CC supported file types, we can see that After Effects CC includes AVI input support in the following conditions:
– DV files in AVI container
– Windows AVI files: requires QuickTime on Mac OS
– 10-bpc uncompressed YUV AVI files created in Adobe Premiere Pro into 16-bpc RGB After Effects projects.

If the AVI files are encoded with other incompatible codec such as Divx, Xvid, H.264, DNxHD, etc, After Effects CC will fail to recognize and open them.
