Can't Collect Files in AE
by chandra hope 5 years ago

Hey Fellows, I have 22 timelines that need to be sped up 200%, and 400%. I'm trying to avoid making 44 new timelines with speed adjustments on each. I can't seem to find anything in the output setting

Thanks, Todd. That makes a lot of sense. So if I read you right, for those shooting video on DSLRs the lens length translates identically - for the most part - from cinema 35mm film cameras. Yes - The
