I am a bit of an After Effects Newbie, looking for a bit of help with a radom effect that occured whilst I was recently
Basically I imported a bit of footage .mov and it through an interlacing effect over, like the signal was lost? anyway I thought it actually looked pretty cool and was wondering how one might render such an effect? or what actaully occured, I have since not been able to replicate it.
Any help greatly appreciated
This is a CoDec issue. Wherever your MOV came from it was encoded in an unsuitable manner - for AE, anyway. Read up on that stuff. if you wanted to replicate the look proper, you'd use distortion effects in AE. Similarly, a search for "old TV" or "TV distortion" will turn up enough tutorials and presets for that.
Cheers Mylenium, thats brilliant help
Hey there, just had a fiddle about - trying to recreate the effects
This effect is good: Bad TV
But its not really close to what I was doing..... any idea what codec would throw that error? I tried a few - basically won't let me import them if bad
