Hi CreativeCows,

I just installed Adobe After Effects again. I made something very simple with Illustrator then I import it into adobe after effects and changed the rotation of 1 object so it rotates 45 degrees in 1 second. After rendering the movie and watching the avi I noticed that it didn't rotate very smoothly. Does anyone know what I can change and how I can change it so the rotation will go smooth?

Im using the basic options of After Effects now and haven't changed anything in the options so far.

Also I noticed when I import the Illustrator file it was one object however I need one object within the Illustrator file to rotate. So what I did was to import the Illustrator file without the object I wanted to rotate and import another file which was the object I wanted to rotate. It would be better if I can just import one file without having to import another file in order to rotate an object. Can I fix this by putting everything in another layer in Illustrator?


Thanks!

Hi and thanks for the reply ;) It kinda helped me. I remember from last time I used a Codec h.264 or something like that. Where can I change this? And this will effect the output of the movie right?

Dave's Stock Answer #3:

Don't use AE to compress files for final delivery. The various compressors are there only to make quick 'n dirty files showing a project's progress to producers, clients, the kids, etc. AE is incapable of doing multipass encoding, a crucial feature that greatly improves the image quality of H.264 and MPEG-type files in particular.

Render a high-quality file from AE, and use a different application to do the compression. Popular ones are Adobe Media Encoder, Sorenson Squeeze and Apple's Compressor, which comes bundled with Final Cut Suite. Even compressing in Quicktime Pro is better than compressing in AE.
