I have recorded a 40 minute video of a hockey game and have made a clock in score board in after effects as an overlay. Every thing works great but I am running into problems when I render. First of all I will be outputting these videos to the web with a max resolution of 1280 x 720.

Should I use those dimensions for my project in AE? I have captured my video using a camera that records in 1440 x 1080(1.33). And what codec should I be using when I render, I see alot of people use the H.264 for the web?

Any other tips you may have would be great, thanks for the help.

I think I'd just use the video & audio as a reference to make an alpha-channeled scoreboard animation for use in Premiere. From Premiere you can probably go to Adobe Media Encoder to make it any size you want.

Changing the scores shouldn't be a big problem, but I wish you good luck animating all those clock stops & starts; it'll probably get old really fast.

40 minutes is a long comp. You could use the output dimensions - since AE is correctly interpreting your footage, it should be fine on in a 720 comp.

H.264 is great for the web - although this file will be huge (40 min of it). Probably a data rate of at least 4000kb/s - output uncompressed (or animation) and let Adobe Media Encoder do the dirty work. It's got great presets.

Best,
