Matteo FerreccioRendering Issue on deadline
by on Apr 29, 2012 at 10:10:37 pm

Hola all. I am on deadline for a work and I have a big problem. To work fast, I didn't converted the .MTS video files native from the camera, and I did a lot of post-production on them. It is a 1-minute, 60-something shots project, in After Effects. Now, I was ready to render: a 32bpc PNG Sequence.

All AE built effects are OK, but the frames of many shots are misplaced and skips flashforward; I read that this is caused by the .MTS format not having a keyframe on every frame.

SO I tried to export in AE every shot in another format (like, uncompressed .mov) to replace all .MTS footage. BUT, little problem, AE's render has this frame issue even without any effects applied.

Quicktime doesn't open .MTS file, so no Quicktime conversion's possible.

I really don't know what to do.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY HINTS FOR ME? Maybe some tricks to make AE render properly (like, render in another format than PNG sequence or lower the 32bpc)? Or, maybe, another program for doing a good conversion of the .MTS files without loosing quality?

Thank you very much

You should be able to google for a freeware app that will convert the MTS into a friendly (ie no long GOPs) format for AE.

Already tried but didnt have any luck. Footage always ends up deteriorated. Maybe I found a solution using Adobe ME to convert every shot in a TIFF sequence, then replacing one by one the .MTS clip in the AE project. A little boring and not the fastest method on earth, but the TIFF sequence doesn't have the frame issue and it is totally lossless.

Thank you for your answer

Matt

Just use Media Encoder to encode the MTS to something lossless like Animation, or lossy like ProRes HQ.
