I'm working with uncompressed avi files in AE. I'm having a very frustrating issue, and I want to see if there was any kind of setting within AE that I could tweak to get my videos to look correct.
The videos look fine sometimes, but usually the video looks terrible. It appears that the frames look fine as long as there is little movement in the scene, but once the scene changes, the video frame freezes (almost as if it wasn't refreshing), then as the scene changes the video "wipes" itself clean again, and then the video returns to normal.
Windows Media player and VLC both view the videos completely perfectly, however, AE does not!
If you see this on a viewer after you've rendered your AE project, I wouldn't sweat it: it's probably that the hard drive can't keep up with the high bit rate of a high-quality file, which is precisely what you should be making in AE.
If, on the other hand, you seeit in AE during a RAM Previes, you've got problems.

"Uncompressed" is a pretty loose term. RGB, YUV, 422, 444, 8-bit, 10-bit, packed, planar, run-length encoded...
What flavor of uncompressed are you using? What uncompressed codecs do you have installed on your computer?
