Scrolling text with after effects CS5
on Mar 17, 2011 at 6:45:29 pm

Hi everyone!

I'm an intermediate AE user and I'm doing a vertical scroll. I copy and paste the Mercury Jones script in "position" and worked really nice but I can still see the flicker in my text. My settings are

1920x1080 23.97 fps square pixels and the scroll timing is 30 sec. I added a flicker filter but I can still see the flickering. Is it like a very simple number to change or what should I do.???

Thank you
Itzel

[itzel Valadez] "1920x1080 23.97 fps square pixels and the scroll timing is 30 sec. "

First, let's get that frame rate correct. Do you mean 29.97, or do you mean 23.976?

Since the frame rate is 23.976, I have to wonder if you're seeing flicker or if you're seeing fast motion.
23.976 can't accommodate fast motion smoothly, and if your text is moving at 3-4 pixels per frame or more, it won't look smooth.

You can put motion blur on the text and it might help.

Thanks Dave,

Yes I think I'm gonna use the blur effect. The editor I'm working with is using those settings. I don't like it! but I'm gonna make two options one with the 23.976 fps and other option with 30 fps. My render movies are Apple ProRes 422. He asked me to do it that way.

When I compared the two files the 30fps looks much better than the 23.976. He is using FCP, my only concern is if he use the 30fps is it gonna work under a project with a 23.976 fps.???
The final product is a serie of web episodes.

Thank you very much Dave!!!! thank you!!!

You are wise to be concerned. The answer is no, it will not work. If your editor is cutting footage at 23.976, the footage you deliver must also be at 23.976. If you mix frame rates, it will only make your animation look worse in FCP.
