Folks,

Just got the new DJI Osmo. It does great time lapse, but makes it onboard the camera as an MP4 file, ready to use instantly.

My issue is I want to edit the images as a sequence and tone map the images as a sequence. That means converting the movie back into jpgs or tiffs etc.

Does After Effects do this easily does anyone know?

Thanks for tips / advice.

Stephen

You can export a png, tiff, or jpeg sequence from After Effects. It won't be the original images from the camera of course, but it will give you the individual frames to work with.

Although, I would use the Adobe Media Encoder to do this rather than After Effects.
You should check to see if your camera has an option to record in a different format though. An MP4 file is going to be highly compressed and it uses interframe compression which you probably don't want.
