I've searched for this topic, but I can't seem to find it. I'm using AE CS6 on Windows 7. Just about every time I render to Quicktime Animation (which I use for alpha channel), I get a visual glitch a

Oh wow, yes, that one works well. I guess I didn't think to try it, thinking the file size would be too large. I tried using DNxHD, but couldn't get the Alpha to work correctly when I brought it into

Forgive me if this has already been asked. The project I am working on has a good number of clips in a composition. Several of the clips are small and aren't featured; they're more for the background.

Irremovable Interlace

I ripped some footage that was shot by my company before I arrived from a DVD. It looks like the footage was shot at 24p, but on the DVD itself, there's a really bad interlace problem on occasion. Aft

by Brendan Coots 8 years ago
