Working With Arri Alexa Files and Exporting DPX
on Dec 8, 2013 at 10:35:04 pm

Hello dear people,

I've just started working in a new project and I'd love if anyone can help me with basic stuff...
So, I'm working on "Arri Alexa" MOV Files, and I searched for the best workflow to work with such files in after effects and finally found the answer holding these color settings and project settings (Hope its right)

Depth 32 bit per channel (float)
Working space HDTV (Rec. 709)

I interpret the footage to "Universal camera film printing Density" and then i start working

Now the Post-house asked me to export "as DPX or EXR depending on
your workflow. If you choose to deliver as DPX please make sure they
are 10bit and all values are between 0 and 1."

I know what DPX is, But I got no idea what values they are talking about! any help?

Thank you

The color bit depth and choice of full range (what they're asking for) are available in the Cineon Settings dialog box, which you open by clicking the Cineon Settings button in the Output Module Settings dialog box for DPX.

What version of After Effects are you using? You appear to be using an old version of After Effects from before we added 10-bit-per-channel DPX.

Not that this is relevant to this question, but note that you are three major bug-fix releases behind. You should have the CS6 (11.0.3) update installed.

Regarding DPX: It was After Effects CC (12) that expanded DPX features.

Dear todd,

I found a system with After Effects CC for exporting,
I was wondering if my settings are right for this kind of project
And how do I make sure they get a file that got no color correction/workspace affect on it?

here they are
