Quick question,

I'm doing some minor animation of Jpegs in 3D space. I added to render que, using Animation best quality. When imported into Final Cut, they look smooth and nice. I then export ProRes 422, out of FCP, and the graphics look a bit jumpy.

Should I be using a different codec out of After Effects? I am using AE 6 and Final Cut 6.

Is this video HD? How are you watching it when it gets "jumpy"?
The data rate of the video you're exporting out of FCP may be too high for your hard drive to play back.

No, its not in HD. My master QT file is ProRes 422.

Three questions:

Did you render (DON'T EXPORT!!!) out of AE in the proper field order for your FCP edit timeline?

Did you double-check the footage in the FCP Browser to confirm that the footage is in the proper field order for your FCP edit timeline, and changed it if necessary?

Are you looking at this on a video monitor and NOT those pea-shooter FCP viewers, because you can NEVER judge video quality by looking at those viewers, but only on a video monitor?

Thanks David for putting up with my questions..lol.

1) Yes, I did render.

2) Yeah, it's set there.

3) I'm watching through QT Player.

One of my editor friends, tells me it could just be my Macbook. 500 mb file out of FCP, not a small file. I could also render Photo JPEG codec, I suppose.(out of AE)

The codec in which you render has absolutely NO BEARING on field order.

Go look at this think on a real video monitor. In FCP, there is no -- repeat, absolutely no -- substitute for a video monitor. If you think there is, you're living in a dream world.
