Flash Animations received at 10fps
on Mar 9, 2010 at 12:50:19 pm

I am compositing some blue screen footage with some Flash animation. I had the Flash artist render out the work at 1280x720 Animation codec 30fps. What I got was everything but the frame rate. It says 10fps in FCP. Is this correct, and or is tis going to work?

If your sequence is 30fps, a 10fps animation will look very choppy.

In my experience, most Flash animators work at 10 or 12fps. He probably used the default by mistake. You might try to change the frame rate with Compressor. Be sure to turn on Frame Controls and select best for rate-conversion. 10 to 30 is a big jump, so it still might not look very smooth.

[Jeffrey Lonigro] "...I had the Flash artist render out the work at 1280x720 Animation codec 30fps. What I got was everything but the frame rate. It says 10fps in FCP...."

So tell your Flash animator to kindly remove his or her head from a certain revolting posterior orifice and re-do the work, this time in your delivery specifications.

There's no reason why you should have to work around something like this when it can -- and should -- be fixed.

And since we're on the topic of frame rates, I have fundamental doubts that you want the animation delivered at 30fps. I expect you REALLY want it delivered at 29.97, right?

I agree with Dave.
For an animation 10 or 12 fps is OK, but if you have to compose it with video, won't work.
Tell your animator to export with the same time-base than you intend deliver.
And if you are ending interlaced, ask interlaced.
