AE doesn't seem to support .MTS... so I'm trying to find a way to get a few clips into AE, remove some grain with the grain removal tool, and then get them back into Premiere into my main project. Does anyone have any advice about the best format (and maybe a converter tool) and method for doing this?
I appreciate it!
Which version of AE? AE has supported P2/ XDCAM/ AVCHD files for a while now, all of which can be labeled as MTS. Without exactly knowing what files, nobody wil lbe able to give concrete advice on converters and such. That aside, there's no need to turn this into a science lesson - simply export image sequences or losslessly compressed Quicktime files (Animation, PNG) from Premiere. any otehr format will only introduce another level of compression, which kinda defeats the purpose of denoising it in the first place...
I appreciate the help. Im using AE CS4, just as I'm using Adobe Premiere CS4. When I attempt to import the MTS file it gives an error saying it's an unsupported format. Anyway I think exporting image sequence would be great. I'll give that a try and let you know how things go.
