using 16 bit with apple pro res.
on Apr 16, 2010 at 12:06:14 am

Hi all,

Whenever I set my project to be a 16bit (or 32 bit) project in AE, the entire comp just shows colored static. I am importing a file from final cut and it is in pro res 422. I am doing some green screen work. But after efffects does not recongize the file. But after effects will work with h264. I have a friend that used pro res 422 and it has worked fine for him in the 16 bit mode. What might be the problem why I can't get pro res 422 to work in 16 bit.
Thanks,

Steve

I am using after effects cs3 professional. Is this why it is not working. Do I need to upgrade to cs4 for pro ress 422 to work in the comp.

Thanks,

Steve

Pretty sure CS3 should work.

Do you have FCP studio installed on the same machine you're running AE on? This is the only way to have the codecs needed.

Stephen,
I noticed in another post your are running FCP7.
What operating system are you running?

Do you have the most current updates for After Effects and Final Cut?

You could try trashing your Preferences and see if that does anything.
Hold down the Command, Shift and Option keys as you start After Effects to restore preferences to their default settings.

I am importing a file from final cut
How are are you exporting the file from Final cut?
Is the File in Final Cut Prores or are you converting
it to prores upon export?

But after efffects does not recongize the file
It recognizes it in 8bit though correct?

But after effects will work with h264.
Are you saying that when you set a comp containing h.264
footage to 16bit you don't have the same problem?
Im assuming you know h.264 and AE don't play well together.

It would help if you could walk us through your process step
by step. The more details you can provide, the more likely we will be
able to figure out the problem.

-Andy
