Hi again, If someone with experience in this PAL - NTSC thing could glance over my settings and give me feedback, that would be great. On the PC the result plays fine, but I have no NTSC DVD-Player to
What the F....rame skip - stick?

Hi, this problem is killing my hours fast: I have a rather complicated menu system with transitions, sub-menus and 35 timelines set up and ready. That is why I'm still trying to work this out, rather

Hi Daniel, Hmm. Maybe I did not use the DV-PAL terminology correctly. I used these settings: screen-prog.jpg which would indicate the progressive is do-able from within the DV-PAL settings. My timelin
Voice over sync workflow - Any VO-artists here?
by Johannes Schwarz 7 years ago
Hi everyone, here is the thing... WHAT I HAVE: I have a (huge) animation project (70 episodes = 4 hours total) and 3 months left on it (then I leave for a 14 month vacation, yey). I have the script in

Thanks Bill, for the input. The whole point is that I am inexperienced at this. I've never tried to put 7 language tracks to one video (nor 2 for that matter). I've always had wiggle room on the video

Hi, I have to output 4 hours of FullHD animation (split in 70 projects) from AE. The files will be edited further in Premiere. Now, normally I would do AVI uncompressed, but I'm looking at a lot of sp

Hi there, I'm trying to improve on my current method to combine an animation with real life footage for a project I'm working on. This is a test sample - pause to check out what the hand looks like at

Thanks Stephen, I've been playing with the settings, but was not satisfied. I decided to do shoot some test samples outside the studio and use the method I described above. It is a more painful proces

Alight, It seems while in principle it might work for some projects, it does not work for mine. The dots are long lines in my case and even if the tracker would track their movemebt, it would not be a

by Johannes Schwarz 7 years ago
Thanks for the tip. I monitored CPU and RAM during a preview render. CPU goes up to 100% and pretty much stays up there. RAM goes up to 10 or so gigs (for the total usage out of my 12). So it also rea
Is there a way...interpreting footage - time in video...
by Johannes Schwarz 7 years ago
Hi, sorry for the heading. It's difficult to put it all in there. WHAT I HAVE I have a project completed, that was released a year ago in PAL land. So everything is 25 fps. This educational series is

by Angelo Lorenzo 7 years ago
I don't believe so. I use Prelude to create subclips and for one music video I worked on we planned on slight slow motion. After we re-interpreted all of our footage, the subclips were all off. If any

by Johannes Schwarz 8 years ago
Thanks Eric, Since I will go over the animation in after effects adding footage to it, I guess, the 1080p @ 23.98 will be the only one I need from them. Greetings, Johannes

by Johannes Schwarz 8 years ago
Hi, I know, the description in the title will provoke curiosity rather than give a clear understanding of what I'm trying to do - namely a crossover look between animation and stop motion... What I'm

by Johannes Schwarz 8 years ago
Hi, Thanks again for your reply. I did animate the stroke end percentage, but I haven't gotten the expression to work yet. If I don't, then I've found a way round. Instead of alternating stills, I jus

Thanks for the tips, @Ann I'm not quite sure regarding your posts. Can I have uppers and lowers on the same timeline (as your 2nd post suggests) or not (as your 1st post states, if I read it right) -
