So I have about 90 minute worth of video from an event that I want to add a very slight bit of sharpening to and denoising in After Effects. I want to just get this all done and out of the way before I start cutting so that way when color correcting/grading I have a better idea of the final product. What i want to do is just apply the effects and then render everything out oevrnight and then reimport everything with the changes made to start cutting with. I was just wondering what the best format would be to export out to before importing back in. I'm on Windows and it's a mix of 5D DSLR and Canon C-100 footage.
If you want to take a generation hit , increase your footage size files substantially and waste time applying fx to footage that wont make the cut..go ahead.
Uncompressed avi is one option.
You could choose a lesser ( compressed) option depending on the end "intention" of the program.
Yeah i was trying to work out in my head how inefficient or pointless of a atsk it may be. The only thing I came up with was excess space and a possible compression hit. Being I have space to spare and this is only for web video, I figured the potential drawbacks weren't huge.
I also like to know of all options that would possibly get a task done regardless of efficiency, this helps me learn by gauging the why's and why not's
