Optimized video setting for keying in AE
on May 12, 2011 at 5:38:58 pm

I have red footage shot on green screen converted to prores 422HQ (4k)
The pro res quicktime file seems to have grain added (maybe just amplified) once converted, primarily on the blacks in the video.

Are there specific setting I can use to convert the red footage so it is optimized for keying in AE, or minimizing the noise on black?

Thanks.

If you are on CS5 you can open the red file directly into After Effects and key from there, no conveeting needed. Or if that is too heavy a TIF sequence exported from Redcine could be good alternative.

I'll try a tiff sequence.
As the R3D file is black and white, and I'm not sure how to convert it back to colour. Originally I was aiming to take the R3D file directly into AECS5, until it showed up as black and white in AECS5.
