I am using After Effects 7.01 Professional to pan across an image file that is 1724 pixels wide and 1072 pixels high. I notice there seems to be jerky looking motion after it was render as a AVI and play back in Premiere Pro2.0. I am running Window XP systems with 2gb of ram. The same results happens when using AE 6.5 Professional. Help me smooth out my moves, thanks.
Sorry, ann, "jerky' means almost nothing around here, the term is simply too broad. You'll need to be more specific. The size of your image is interesting but not as important as the video format you're working in and what you think of as jerking.
As David said, please provide some more info. which direction is your pan? do you correctly render with fields? Do you use motion blur? Do you use an uncompressed image or is it perhaps a JPEG with noticeable compression?
