PROBLEM: AE Rendered Footage Jittery. Frame Swapping?
on Sep 14, 2009 at 6:00:18 am

Hey everyone,

I recently shot some footages of my friend playing some basketball and decided to make a cloning video out of it. I imported the video file (605.mts) to AECS4, divided up, and layered the clips.

However, for some odd reason, the footage becomes jittery in preview and after export. It's like some frames got moved around. Perhaps the video itself would better explain things for me.



I shot the footage with a Canon Vixia HF100, which shoots in AVCHD that uses .MTS file format. I'm on a quadcore computer, 4gigs of ram. Using Adobe AE CS4. Any help will be appreciated! Thanks

convert the media to a codec that does not use interframe (temporal) compression.

uncompressed avi, lossless mov, quicktime photo-jpeg, prores 422 (fcp only), avid dnxhd (free download, search avid's site) or even dvcprohd are codecs that use no compression or only intraframe compresssion, which will work much better in ae, and should fix the problem you are seeing.

you can use your nle to convert the footage, or a utility like mpeg streamclip (free and multi-platform).

To think CS4 would be the solution to all my AVCHD edits... Alright, I will give them a shot. I have worked with converted clips (.mov) back when I had CS3 and when I import the project to CS4 and applied it to my MTS files, all my maskings were off.

I will give it a shot and get back to you. Thanks.

Yeah, looks like I have to convert it to a different file format. Thanks for your help!
