Cycling through images?
by Luke Swain 7 years ago
I'm at a complete loss here. I've imported a folder of images that need to run in sequence. The layer is set to use Textured Poly. I've tried almost every combination of settings I can think of, but I

Hi, I assume you have loaded your images into a comp which is nested in the comp with your particle layer. In the precomp for the image sequence, you can use the Animation Keyframe Assistant to 'Seque
Squealing while shuttling/fast fowarding
by Luke Swain 8 years ago
When I'm shuttling or fast-forwarding in Premiere, the audio emits an extremely high frequency tone that I'm pretty sure isn't room-tone, or part of the original audio. It seems like a glitch, or some

Just press "shift L" until it plays at a speed that's slow enough for you to understand what is said, but still faster than normal playback speed. Hope this helps. S.

Trying to make a 12 minute project look amazing
by Luke Swain 12 years ago
I'm exporting from Adobe Media Encoding within Premiere, but I just can't seem to get something close to lossless for MPEG2. I thought I might have some wiggle room since it's 12 minutes as opposed to

I'm outputting from Premiere at 7CBR. VBR target 7, max 8. Highest quality MPEG2-DVD...quality at 5. Same framerate etc. Now here's the WEIRD thing. I outputted the same test clip from After Effects,
Capture artifacts?
by Luke Swain 12 years ago
Every time I've opened up Premiere to capture footage in it, there are at least 3 distinct areas in the capture window that give blocky artifacting junk. Sony Vegas doesn't show this when capturing, j
Re: Capture artifacts?
by Perry Cheng 12 years ago
I don't think so. The capture file is pretty much ready as soon as the tape ends, at least for me. I can play it immediately. I don't think capturing with Premier vs others make a difference. I could
Final Cut Pro export?!

When I export a lossless Quicktime to be used in works in Final Cut Pro. When I export what I THINK to be a lossless Quicktime to be used in AE...I get only audio, and a white screen. What is

Targa sequence seems right. I can open up the individual targas, but when I try and import them into AE, I click the Targa Sequence, it recognizes the order...I hit ok...It does nothing. No processing

DV Cam for HDV Deck?
by Luke Swain 12 years ago
My boss at work managed to get FCP to still capture HDV, even though the camera was technically just a MiniDV deck at that point. Where can I go in Premiere to tell it to capture HDV I'm using a Canon
Frame by frame
by Luke Swain 12 years ago
Hi, I'm doing some tedious mask shape animation and it would be a lot faster if I could use a keyboard shortcut to move on to the next frame of the comp, instead of going down to the scrubber or the t

Undersampled wiggle?
by Luke Swain 13 years ago
Wiggle is my friend, but I don't want to see all of the inbetween frames it uses from the min to max points. I'm going for a choppy drunken stupor effect, is there a way to tell after effects to only

Hi, Still fairly new to After Effects 6.5 Pro. I am making an animation and want to do an effect like the Matrix. Make the camera move in a semi-circle, so that the viewer first sees the model animate

What program do you use exactly to get those (correct jargon ) interpolated frames Because in the Matrix they didn't start out smooth, it was still pretty stuttering until they did post computer work
