Forums Adobe Premiere Pro Sequence of TIFF usage question?

  • Sequence of TIFF usage question?

    Hi all,
    Just a quick question. I’ve been rendering from my animation tool
    to a sequence of TIF files and I was wondering if it was better
    to import these TIFs into AE or Premier to create the movie. This
    movie will eventually be included into a Premier project that
    I am going to create a DVD from. But I wonder if AE is better for
    the initial conversion from TIFs to a DV movie file.

    Any ideas?

    Actually, any ideas on rendering animation for DVD would also
    be very helpful.

    Thanks

    Maybe I am missing something, but I always like to use AE to do this kind of thing, as I have experienced develish problems (mostly random jitter from photos I edit in photoshop) in the past using Premiere Pro. [I have tried most of the discussed resolutions to photo jitter (jitter that sometimes manifests itself only on an analog TV when the DVD is played), such as deinterlacing, adding a slight blur, flicker removal, etc., but to no avail].

    When I use AE to generate an .avi, and import it into PP, I never have to worry about this.

    Thus, I vote AE. Others may overrule me.

    Well, I have never had problems with numbered stills being brought in as a clip. Lots of individual stills? That’s different.

    But numbered stills have always behaved themselves for me. I use that method to get Particle Illusion projects into Premiere Pro.

    Steven,
    What size and frate rate do you render out from particle
    illusion? I am using 30FPS, 720×480, and 0.9 pixel aspect
    ratio.

    Any thoughts…

    I had to look. I have been too busy with HDV sizes lately.

    720X480 is fine, but so is 720X534 which would be more accurate, since PI does not do 0.9 PAR. (I don’t think it does anyway)

    It is better to import the TIF sequence into Premiere, use it in your timeline and export to DVD.

    If you first create a DV Movie from it you will be adding compression artifacts and creating unnecessary files on your hard drive.

    If there is some incompatibility issue, then use AE to create an lossless compressed movie and use that in Premiere.
