I have 1080P 25 MXF dnxhd 185 8 bit footage that has been graded in Davinci Resolve. I have outputted the footage as 1080P 25 Quicktime Dnxhd 185 8 bit as After Effects doesnt seem to support MXF.
I imported this footage into AE added neatvideo noise reduction and rendered the output as Quicktime DNXHD 185 1080P 25 with a couple of issues.
The output is blurry where movement happening such as hand gestures, and visually looks interlaced (it isn't Im just describing the look)
Furthermore I viewed both the Source file and AE render in Quicktime player and looked at the inspector for details:
The source data rate read: 185mbits/s
The AE output data rate read: 598.22mbits/s
The output file is much bigger than the input file....
Im wondering why.... as I made all the codec settings consistent with the original. I dont know if this is why the output has gone wrong or ifd its something else, but DnxHD 185 should be 185 mbits shouldnt it?
Use TIFFs. AE doesn't play well with the Avid CoDecs. Adobe blames Avid, Avid blames Adobe. You get the idea... 'nuff said.
