Hi all, I've been searching online for a clear answer to this, but haven't been able to get a firm answer--probably because there are so many scenarios that require unique approaches. But here's my question:
I'm creating an After Effects animation that will be 1920x1080 for film festival submission and possible online distribution, Bluray, DVD, etc. It's only animation, so I'm not needing to match the frame rate of footage. So, the question is, do I build my original project with composition settings of 24 fps, or at 23.976 fps, or does it even matter? Will a project built at 24fps render out easily to 23.976 for bluray, or is it better to start at the 23.976 comp setting? Could I just as easily build the comp at 29.97 fps then just render out at various frame rates from AME without significant issues?
I'd use 23.976, especially if it's going to Blu-Ray. I bet 23.976 would work at festivals, but check first! They should have delivery specs. The web doesn't care; it's pretty much frame rate-agnostic, just so it's progressive and not interlaced. That would be bad for the web.
Thank you for your help!
