Removing 2:2 pulldown in After Effects
on Mar 11, 2008 at 10:13:38 pm

We have footage that was shot in 720p60 (59.94). Bringing it directly into our NLE (Media 100HD) it looks fine, but porting it over to AE for color correction and back it seems to be losing its progressive quality and looking more like video. I am assuming this is due to the identical progressive frames for each final frame of video. How does one deal with that within AE (no 2:2 removal)?

Your footage was shot 720p30 (which results in 2:2 pulldown). FOr best results, you should remove that pulldown. Do you have FCP? How about Raylight? Does M100 have any DVCPro HD pulldown removal features? By the way, your video is still progressive, but 59.94 is a high rate of motion giving it that 'video' look. Are you adding graphics or anything in AE or just strictly a CC? If you are just doing a cc in After Effects, then your frames should hold up exactly the same way.

Jeremy,

Media 100 does deal with does deal with the pulldown. We were working in AE for CC and because some of this footage needed to be scaled to end up in an SD comp. When you say the frames should hold up in AE the same way should be be working in a 59.94 or 29.97 comp and then rendering to 29.97 in order to maintain the more filmic motion?

[Jim Wilcox] "When you say the frames should hold up in AE the same way should be be working in a 59.94 or 29.97 comp and then rendering to 29.97 in order to maintain the more filmic motion? "

If Media 100 has removed the duplicate frames, then your sequence should be 720p30. If it is, then work @ 720p30 in AE. If M100 does not remove dupe frames, then you are working @ 720p60 and you should do so appropriately in AE.

Does that make sense?

Jeremy
