I've been pouring through the forum looking for a solution to my "video problems" and decided it was time to ask the question... How do I fix this.
I created a small animation in AE with still pictures that look like polaroids that "drop" and then fade off. I then render to AVI and open in PPro (I don't have dynamic link). When I play the AE AVI in PPro it flickers and I can't for the life of me figure this out. Since I'm new to both AE and PPro I'm thinking the settings are not the same between the two projects or during the render. In the other posts I've read there are numerous reasons why this could be happening. To simply narrow things down without going into a lot of detail, is there a "standard" I should be using in both projects to ensure the AE project plays properly in PPro? I know this should be "easy" but in reality it's driving me crazy :-)
FYI - I also imported a small AVI clip to AE and then re-exported to AVI to try and narrow down the correct settings and I get flicker/jump in the new AVI file.
Do you have the same frame rate on both projects ( 29.97 or 25 or 24...). Are both AE and Premiere projects interlaced or progressive?
If you got these two exactly the same, then it may be the fact that you are using compressed footage - look for Dave's Stock Answer #1, great advice. Render out uncompressed or tga/tiff sequences from AE then import in Premiere and render.
