I rendered out a video in MPEG-2 DVD (NTSC). So far so good.
I accidentally deleted all the files. I also don’t have access to the original footage anymore. Which wouldn’t be a problem but I want to export the MPEG onto tape… into another composition… into anything!
For some reason whenever I put the file into Premiere to output it, or into AE to render it as a different format, it always comes out wrong. And by wrong I mean jerky… but worse. It just holds stills of itself instead of being the freeflowing video I so loved. It’s almost like a slideshow with music.
Why does it play ok itself but won’t output properly? Any workarounds? The best thing I can think of so far is to play it on an LCD screen and point a camera at the screen. Please tell me that’s not the only solution.
