Aftger Effects graphics look crunchy in FCP
on Aug 16, 2010 at 3:03:52 pm

Hi, I am editing a project in Final Cut Pro. Standard Def DV 16:9. I have made some animations in Aftereffects with the composition settings of DV wide screen. When I output the animations as quicktime they look fine in the quicktime player. When I bring them into Final Cut Pro they look fine when I step through then frame by frame but when I render the sequence the edges of the font looks frayed.

I have tried field rendering. Non field rendering. different codecs. not sure how to crack this one.

thank you in advance.

Doug

Hi Doug,
Change your sequence codec to something better than DV (DV50, 8/10b Unc, Prores), and you will see the difference.
Cheers,

I have used prorez50 and 8 and 10 bit and it looks the same. Kind of frayed on the edges. The font is generated in aftereffects...

Are you watching the canvas at 100% and fully rendered?
Did you tried to change the Alpha Channel of the graphics?

[Chris Tompkins] "Render your AE grfx DV50."
No Alpha channel.

Well, when people talk about "Graphics", I imagine an Alpha channel.

I had a similar issue during edit today which involved Livetype. Maybe my solution would help your situation: check the AE Quicktime you've dragged into the browser. Scroll across to the field order column - what's listed there?

Oddly enough, even though I'd exported a 'no fields' Quicktime from Livetype, when it was brought into the browser, it was tagged as 'Upper (Odd)'. I changed that to 'none' and replaced the clip in the sequence - problem solved.
