This sounds like interlacing problems. What;s the horizontal & vertical resolutions of your footage and comps? Where did any video footage originate? Is it most apparent in portions of the clip where there is motion? How is your Premiere Pro project set up?
If you're not hip to interlacing, you could be opening up a snake's nest to be sorted out before you proceed further.
Thank you for responding! I am not hip to interlacing! I'm brand-new to AE, as are my co-workers, but I have more experience in edge animate and flash pro (the time-line functions/object options are similar) so I got the task of fixing this . I will try to get those figures for you asap. Can you clarify:
"How is your premiere pro project set up?"
what do you mean by this, specifically?
And yes, it is ONLY apparent in the clip during motion.
Okay, maybe it's the timeline in PP -- I don't know that app very well. When you make a new timeline, PP asks you to select from one of a number of presets -- which one are you using?
On the AE side, What are the composition settings of this project?
If you incorporated any new video footage into the template, how was it shot?
And yes, funny-looking horizontal lines in portions of motion is a sure indicator of interlacing problems. Now let's sort 'em out.
PP presets = I do not know of any preset (I just opened the file and looked for presets, in vain, and I opened a new file and couldn't see any preset dialogue). DV capture though
Can you define composition settings visa vi AE?
video footage is only on the PP side, no footage added to AE template.
It sounds like you & your colleagues are brand-new to this stuff. I gotta tell you, it's not all laid out in crystal-clear logic, and it's not very intuitive... ESPECIALLY After Effects. There are many, MANY basic pitfalls for the beginner. This'll help:
I'm sure there's something similar for PP, and I strongly urge you to use it.
Let's get some basic info about that template. Open the AE project. Open the comp you use to render for use in PP. Open the comp settings: Ctl-k Win, Cmd-k Mac. take a grab of the window & post it.
Add that comp to the AE Render Queue. Once in, reveal the Render Settings & Output Module. Take window grabs and post them, too.
That should get the ball rolling.
I'd ask about this conundrum on Adobe's PP forum as well. Both applications have to work in conjunction with each other, and right now, they're not. I get the sense you're groping around in the dark and hoping for the best.
Great I will do all of that and thank you very much for helping me

Just wondering if you had given any more thought to this issue or if you are waiting on some info from me (I think I got you all the info you asked for but let me know if something is missing).
