I'm animating photos with white borders in AE, like polaroids. It's basically a camera slow panning and tracking around them.
Each time the camera gets closer, and pans appear to be faster, I get this choppy look caused by the sharp white borders.
I have tried
- Subtle Gaussian Blue
- Enabling Motion Blur
and while they help a little, the effect is still there. Is there another technique? Someone suggested to take into PPro and apply the anti flicker effect.
Please help. Deadline today.
There are things like critical panning speeds that you must be aware of. The lower the frame rate the bigger the problem. The FAQ section of this forum has a link to two articles that may help. One is for horizontal motion the other is for vertical. FAQ: Why does horizontal motion stutter (judder) in my movies, such as during pans?
There is a lot of good information about all kinds of problems in the FAQ section. You'll find a link on the form homepage. After Effects FAQ List
You could also be experiencing skipped frames during playback. The answer to that problem is also in the FAQ: FAQ: Why is my output file huge, and why doesn't it play back smoothly in a media player?
