H.264 rendering, odd frame size
Having issues creating a high quality H264 quicktime to deliver for upload to a website… heres what’s up….
I have a comp Width 404 and height 600. Portrait framing not traditional tv framing.
I would like to be able to supply a nice high quality H264 quicktime so clients web guys can convert and upload (in that pixal ratio) to a flash player.
I’ve tried exporting out of final cut using quicktime conversion and also tried compressor, both give me washed out quicktimes.
I found a supposed workaround here
But this has done nothing for me. tried a number of times and no luck.
I’m in after effects, and I’ll admit CS4 is a little new to me (I’ve had AE 7 for years) and the H264 output takes some getting used to.
Well all went well in the end, rendered out a fantastic looking H264 quicktime (NOT via quicktime, instead from the output Module Format Menu). Looked sharp, and rich in colour.
But sent to client and all he got was a file flashing green and playing random frames, just all over the shop.
So what now? using quicktime gives me a washed out look I can’t use or seem to fix, using the H264 output gives me a great looking file that a client with the same quicktime version can’t play.
I am running latest quictime on 3 computers all played fine. I am using latest CS4.
Any suggestions would be fab…
