Convert after effects project from ntsc to pal no footage
on Apr 5, 2012 at 7:05:38 am

Hi chaps, I have been handed an ntsc project and I am in pal land - there's no 'footage' so there's no problem with interlacing or frame rate (ie it's only 'graphics') - the problem is the project has one 'main' comp in which are over 30 'pre-comps' will I have to go through all the pre-comps and change there comp settings from 29.97 to 25 fps as well as the master comp ... any advice very welcome (whilst I know this won't take me that long to do I really want to know if there are any dangers doing it before I hand the project back to my client) !

Roger

That would depend on whether certain portions of the animation must absolutely, positively take place on a frame instead of someplace during a frame: a lightning bolt that has to sync up with a sound effect later in an NLE, for example.

If yes, the unmatched frame rates of the nested comps would almost surely throw off careful timings.
