Are you using the same versions of both engines? (Check the version and
buildNumber properties in Rev and in MC to find out.)

Are you sure the videoclip is present in the stack? Look in the App
Overview, or else enter something like "put the name of videoclip 1" in the
message box, after importing.

These are just the first questions I'd ask to try to track down the problem.
