Hello to you all!
I'm working on an animation project in AfterEffects and I have the problem that if you look closely at the vertical lines in the animation they flicker.
You can have a look at it here: AfterEffects Vertical lines flicker - YouTube
It gets better if I render the video with 60 frames per second but I don't have the option to give away the video with such a high framerate.
It has to be 25FPS. So my question: is there a way to avoid this flickering even at 25FPS.
I tried several things to avoid it:
1. Reduce Interlaced Flicker effect: no improvement
2. I tried to put animated grain in the background: no improvement
3. I slightly blurred the whole animation: a bit better, but not really
Thank you for any suggestion!
Use uneven values for the line thicknesses. This is a typical issue when they are only one or two pixels wide and due to the chosen velocity one edge of the line is always excessively sharp. "Crooked" values liek 1,2 pixels or similar will enforce better antialaising and suppixel sampling. Also of course consider slightly tweaking the scroll velocity to begin with and using motion blur.
