Error in video when render and compressing too H264 MP4
on Apr 19, 2011 at 6:51:40 am

Hello people, lately I've been having a small issue with my Mp4 files. When played in Quciktime, VLC, Preview (MAC) the whole video jumps, flickers or lacking.

It only does that when I compressed the files to Mp4 with Media Encoder from Adobe, It has never done this before, so I'm clueless?

Hope someone can help me!

Ps. All my projects are render out from After Effects with animation or None.

Installed any new codecs lately?

I am having the same issue. Don't recall installing anything new. I checked and rechecked. It only does this when rendering to H264 MP4 files. Exporting to prores and stuff still works. VERY FRUSTRATING though. Never had this issue before.

[Ronald Griffin] "It only does this when rendering to H264 MP4 files. Exporting to prores and stuff still works."

Dave's Stock Answer #3:

Don't use AE to compress files for final delivery. The various compressors are there only to make quick 'n dirty files showing a project's progress to producers, clients, the kids, etc. AE is incapable of doing multipass encoding, a crucial feature that greatly improves the image quality of H.264 and MPEG-type files in particular.

Render a high-quality file from AE, and use a different application to do the compression. Popular ones are Adobe Media Encoder, Sorenson Squeeze and Apple's Compressor, which comes bundled with Final Cut Suite. Even compressing in Quicktime Pro is better than compressing in AE.
