    Mp4 animation scattering

    Riccardo Cav

      HI everyone,

       

      I created a simple animation in which vector graphics interact with background pictures.

      When I rendered it in mp4 I saw that in the resulting video graphics elements don't move smoothly: they scatter a lot and that's not the effect I was looking for. I would just like the graphics to follow the paths I drew (which they actually do when I watch the video in AE).

      Any idea on how to solve the problem?

      Thanks in advance

          To me, the word "scatter" means, "breaking up into tiny pieces and speading all over the screen".

          What does "scatter" mean to YOU?  Please elaborate.

           

          Other things:

          The animation may not be moving smoothly because you chose a low frame rate for the AE comp.  What is it?

          If you're rendering mp4's directly from AE, don't.  Use Adobe Media Encoder to make them.

          If you're running AE on a computer with a Yosemite OS, that could be the problem.  Yosemite stinks.

            Thank you very much Dave.

            Actually I shouldn't have used the verb scatter: the problem was more that graphic were not moving smoothly.

            As you suggested I used Media Encoder and the result is now very good. I didn't know this was the right way to export an After Effect animation, so thank you very much.

            All the best.
