Best Setting to render from After Effects
on Mar 12, 2012 at 3:07:08 pm

Hello,

I have been making some timelapse videos Someone has asked to use some of my footage and I am wondering what the best quality I could do it.
My work flow is Camera, Lightroom, imports the pictures into After Effects into a 16bit comp.
I normally render my timelapse comps from AE into a quicktime container with H.264 while I edit and then uncompressed when I know exactly what I want.

Can someone advise me what would be the best settings/ containers and compression to give me the best quality from AE to be imported into AVID as MPEG 50 MXF.

So its from my camera, though my workflow of Lightroom, After Effects and then passed on to this edit that will be using MPEG 50 MXF.

I use an Imac and the footage will be going into a PC runing Avid.
Please let me know if i have left out some info.


Thanks for any advise.

Download the Avid QT codecs, install and render to the MPEG 50 MXF codec.

Or you could just render to an QT-Animation(lossless) and let the avid guy do the transcode upon import. Gives the added benefit that if they change things in the future they have a completely uncompressed animation. Though in Avid it really shouldn't matter as it handles mixed footage/resolution pretty well.

Those are the formats I would want(I use Avid), but the best bet is to just talk to the editor and confirm what will work best for him.
