ANIMATION/FLICKER problem
on Oct 12, 2011 at 5:03:03 pm

ok so this is how im going about it.
MAYA SETTINGS:
render: best anti-alias, high quality sampling/shading etc.
no multi-pixel filtering
field options- render: frames
PNG image format
1024 x 768
device aspect ratio: 1.333
pixel aspect ratio: 1.000
24 fps

PNG sequence into after effects settings (the sequence says "non-interlaced)(is that good?)
interpret footage to 24fps

ok so theres alot of movement and its flickering. or looks wrong.
looked up about pixel aspect but im running square pixels


can someone tell me where ive put my settings wrong...im thinking its something with the mutli-pixel filter or bringing it into after effects wrong maybe?

thank you in advance if you can help

If AE thinks it's a 30fps sequence and you've reduced it to 24fps, it might be trying to de-interlace it. The setting for this is somewhere in the timing controls, I forget exactly where. The option is called something like "de-interlace when speed below 100%".

I don't think I see the flicker that you're talking about... unless you just mean the lack of motion blur? For a scene moving that quickly you really need blur to make it flow.

If you're doing software renders, that isn't affected by your graphics card at all.

The default 2D motion blur settings are actually quite effective in most cases, so long as you don't have transparent objects moving in front of one another. It's much, much faster than 3D motion blur. Adding motion blur in post is possible, but if you're not already set up to do so it's a pain. Start with 2D and go from there.
