HI apologies if I didn't see the answer to my question in the FAQ. Previously have been using CS3, importing an image sequence of JPEGs, applying a plugin filter (GBDeflicker) deflickering the sequence and exporting the new adjusted files. Now I have CS5 but for some stupid reason I can not figure out how to do the same thing. The only Export selections I have from the file menu appear to be flash, flash prof and premier pro? Unlike the several selections that appear in CS3.

What stupid thing am i doing?


PS i checked Adobe but could not find my answer either.

MacPro 2.66 OSX 10.6.8 CS5

Here's a simple answer: don't export. Instead, use AE's render queue. You can render an image sequence from there.

A short word about image sequences: watch out for the frame rate! AE defaults as assigning the non-existent frame rate of 30fps to image sequences. You can change the frame rate in the Interpret Footage settings. Pick whatever is appropriate for you:

NTSC video: 29.97
NTSC 720p video: 59.94
NTSC film: 23.976
PAL video: 25
PAL 720p video: 50
Film going to a film-out: 24

You'll want to double check with the person receiving your completed AE work on that last frame rate. The chances are VERY GOOD that it should be 23.976 after all.

Would you be more specific? Where is the option to render as a jpeg sequence using AE's render Queue? i do not appear to have an option for jpeg sequence, only .mov.
