I'm trying to create a time lapse of 1170 images I took during the Geminid meteor shower. I edited all the files in Lightroom v4.3 with the Catalog Settings set to "Automatically write changes into XMP" selected. Lightroom created all the necessary XMP files for each CR2 file. All the files look great in Lightroom. After importing them into After Effects v22.214.171.124, there are four frames that are corrupt, although this varies. Two of the frames appear really dark. It's as though the Blacks got set extremely negative (e.g. -100). The other two frames look like color calibration charts. Here are the changes I made in Lightroom:
Enabled with Default settings
First, is there a way to find out which filename (e.g. _S1P8449.CR2) is associated with a particular frame? When importing into AE, I selected all necessary files at once ensuring the Camera RAW Sequence was checked. There were two frames missing but it indicated a range from 8282-9453. When I render or do a memory preview, I seem to always get bad frames. In addition, they seem to be random. One time through, it was frames 356, 398, 816, and 921. The next time through, after purging the cache and memory, it was 460, 496, 727, and 1017. It's been very frustrating trying to figure out what's going on. I've tried rendering as Quicktime, FLV and AVI just to name a few. They all show these corrupted files. I even tried using the standalone Adobe Media Encoder for rendering. It too had the bad frames. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm using Windows 7 with the latest service pack and all updates. I have 24 GB of memory. I have Adobe Master Collection CS6 with all the latest updates.
