Looking for AE insights as I delve into my first post production...
on Jan 14, 2012 at 4:19:06 am

Greetings everyone, I'm new to PP/AE and have been enjoying the wealth of information available from Creative Cow but as I delve into my first major Post Production, but I am quickly finding new issues that I haven't found the answers for yet, so i thought I'd get involved here, any help would be greatly appreciated...

Currently I'm editing a clip that I requires several effects and I was wondering what the best "order of operations" would be.

1. Zoom/Pan
2. Remap Time, using AE
3. Stablize, using Warp Stabilizer in AE
4. Garbage Matte/Ultra Key in PP

Any recommendations?

My approach would be:

1. Stablize, using Warp Stabilizer in AE
---Lock down your shot first. Stabalizing a shot becomes harder and harder the more you effect the shot.

The other 3 options really depend on the shot, but if I were doing everything in AE, after Stabilizing, I would garbage matte/keylight, pan/zoom then time remap.

Time Remapping adds/subtracts frames, do that last. My 2 cents.
