I'm having a hard time to understand why the same After FX composition has a green screen when I open it in After Effects v18.0.1 (2021 - the latest) while in v17.7 (2020) it shows ok (the video imported actually shows the motion). Why does the latest version gives me problems such as this, and I have to work on previous versions like v17.7? In both versions, the audio of the video (mp4) runs ok, but the image on v18.0.1 is just a still motionless green screen, no motion video is visible. Any idea why this may be happening?
Even when I try to start a project from scratch, when I import a video (mp4) to the project, in V18.0.1, it immediately shows it with a still green screen, even before I transfer it to the composition. This does not happen with version 17.7 (2020), the import of the video runs ok, it shows the video well. Can anybody help here? Prinstscreens attatched, of the same project in both AfterFX versions.

This is a workaround provided by Adobe at this time: Go to Preferences > Import Deselect "Enable hardware-accelerated decoding" under Video Footage Then go to Preferences > Media & Disk Cache Click "Empty Disk Cache" and "Clean Database & Cache" Relaunch After Effects and import the files again
