I am revising my first motion graphics project I created a while back. Looking back now at it now, it looks like a really ambitious project to start with--I enthuiastically jumped in with both feet and immediately got in over my head! (Rotating product globe! Orbiting 3-D text!! Exploding type!!!) Here's how it looks currently:
(BTW, the female VO won hands down!)
Now I need to go back, revise it and add some more segments. I've got some color issues I need to address, hopefully by (re-)setting it up correctly in the first place. I want to change the settings on the exisitng AE projects and create the new AE comps with the same settings.
Method of final delivery will be HD 1080 file on Blu-Ray disc.
So, how do these settings look?
The settings look okay. Just a few observations:
The color issues were a washed-out look that either you or Rick told me way back last September was not an incorrect color space, but more likely gamma shift. So, I figure if i get it set up correctlly, I'll see if that soves the prob; if not, we'll go from there.
If I set the project's color depth to 16 bits, then for output, do I choose Uncomprssed YUV 10 bit 4:2:2? Or something else entirely?
Also, about the output settings, this output will be to import into PR, where I will put it all together. So, as I understand it, that needs to be uncomporesesed, right?
I need to have the quality of this project hight enough for HD1080, but it will also be posted online. (the link I posted above is just my work-in-progress at my website, not for delivery to the client.)
Looking back over old Forum discussions i see i tried the PNG codec, and thought it looked "kinda sickly". I'll try it again once I have everything set up correctly.
I might blame the male's lack of energy in the VO on the direction, or lack thereof, which was me! They are both pros, but she doesn't really need any direction. They are friends of mine, and a married couple, so I told them I was only going to pay the winner. She won 20-1!
My workflow on this project:
Sound like a plan? I am really trying to sharpen my axe before I start chopping this time!
