If the .PDF and the Quick Start Tutorial weren’t enough, you might be helped by the beginning of this article : BRAW Studio Licensing.
Select “[A] Hap” or “[A] Hap Q” and export in RGB in the AE settings. Exporting in
RGB+Alpha on AE (or ticking
Export Alpha Channel on PPro / AME) will automatically switch the codec to Hap Alpha or Hap Q Alpha !
We recommend the open-source DJV_view media review software, it has RAM playback, frame-by-frame scrubbing and a lot of others features, check it out and install it !
Yes that’s why there is AfterCodecs ! It doesn’t need Quicktime (and never will) to run so you should be safe now ;)
Be sure to be using x264 (and not x264 RGB or x265), with the quality slider <= 98. If it still doesn’t work, lower the quality or bitrate, or choose the H264 Main Profile
Be sure to set your AE project in 16 bpc, it will export to AfterCodecs in 16 bpc (even if you select “Millions of Colors” instead of “Trillions of Colors”)
H264 is the norm and x264 a software encoder that implements H264, faster and of better quality than encoders from Adobe or Quicktime

One license is for the same user on up to two computers not used at the same time. For example you can do OSX + Windows not at the same time, or your professional computer and your personal laptop not used at the same time.
