I’m using Episode Pro 4.3.2. I just got the update, but haven’t installed it yet. I’ll do that now. Viewing on an Apple 23″ Cinema. The AE render looks fine, I’m only having this problem after the EP encode. I’ve tried several different formats with the same results. I also tried a different .mov (different project) from Final Cut and it looks fine after the encode.
this is the process from shoot to encode:
HVX200, DVCPRO HD 720P60, 24PN> P2 (MXF) >
Final Cut Import (quicktime wrapper, DVCPRO HD 720P60) >
Automatic Duck export to AE, 16bit project>
AE render (quicktime, animation) >
Episode Pro encode: H264 mov, H264 mp4
I should also mention this is my first time using Automatic Duck. For those not familiar, you export an XML file from final Cut, import that into AE and it brings in all the native media from your FCP timeline.
And to clarify, I changed the AE project back to 8bit, rendered that, and the encoding results are the same..
I looked for an Episode Pro forum, must have missed it somehow..
