Caspar Strackeexporting to FCP?

Hello everyone.

searched archive assuming this question must have come up a zillion times but could only find the other way around (FCP>AE)
So here;s my problem: I am working on a 1080 25p project and exported files from AE in the right settings.
In FCP the file doesn't play back properly even if all settings are right.

can you link me to this topic?

Much thanks!

Caspar

Hey Caspar,

Don't know if this helps...because I don't work in PAL, but there is a discrepancy when rendering 24p material for FCP...FCP calls it 23.98...whereas in AE, you need the frame rate to be 23.976.

Again, don't know about 25 (which is PAL I believe)...but maybe that info might give you something to go on.

Do the files that you rendered in AE match the settings of your sequence in FCP?
What are the settings of the rendered files, and the sequence? (include codec)
What do you mean by "not play back properly"?

(If the files stutter on playback, maybe your drives are too slow to play back the files)

Thanks, Steve and sorry..that wasn't very precise.
The clip staggers and plays back at about 5-10 fps , but only the AE one, all the other native HDV clips play back fine, so I doubt that its a ram issue.
Copied exact settings from FCP Sequence, HDV PAL 1080 25p, with upper field first.
(AE recognized this and automatically interpreted is this way)

Heh -- no worries on the precise thing. :-)

So you used AE to render an HDV clip which you then dropped into FCP?

Try importing the "bad" AE clip and a "good" clip back into AE and check their settings. Tell me if they match. I suspect that the AE-rendered clip may have the right frame size and rate, but not the right codec. Let us know what you get -- do the clip characteristics match exactly?

(and I didn't mean that RAM was an issue -- I meant that the hard drive might not be fast enough to play back a high-res non-HDV-compressed 1080 PAL clip)
