Hi there. I am working on a project wich involves 2 spot about 30 seconds long. This project includes video footage in HD And the output mode must be in HD 1920x1080.

Cause is the first time im working with this kind of footage i m a bit scared about how the overall work will come out. Well if you got any tips before i start i would really appreciate it.

Best regards,

stranger.

Square pixels at 1920 x 1080. You'll want to find out the frame rate too.

If you have AE CS3, use REC-709 working space for anything you create. THe only hitch there is that you don't want to run any of the Avid video through 709 or you might see a color shift. Try to save the final compositing of the graphics onto the video for the Avid online session.

Sao, the frame rate is 29,97, but i m not too familiar with the working space REC-709, i've looked in the composition settings and i cant find it. Its like working in square pixels ? I think i dont understand well, you say that the video footage should be in some kind of compressor native ( Avid )? And in that way i should output my final composition in one set for the avid online session? I dont want to be anoying but could you explain it to me step by step? If not dont worry, thanks for the help though.

Best regards,

The REC-709 is in the Project Settings (at the very bottom of the "File" menu). REC-709 is a recommended gamma value and color gamut as outlined by the ITU. Adobe's color profiles do their best to emulate the color space and gamma curve of the selected profile.

 

As you import footage, you can assign it a color profile that tells AE what to expect from it, then define a separate working color space that emulates the output target. That way you can adjust for the output profile.

 

From there, in the output module, you can tell AE to render in the working color space you've specified, or choose "Preserve RGB" to ignore the working color space. You'll probably want to leave it at it's default and have AE apply the working colorspace profile when you render out.

 

For comp settings, you could just select the composition preset called "HDTV 1080 29.97" from the composition presets pulldown menu that comes up when you create a new comp.

 

You can download the Avid QuickTime codecs from Avid's site. That will let you work with Avid footage on a machine without the Avid hardware installed.

 

The format you render out depends on what kind of thing you're trying to do. In some cases you might want to render directly to the Avid codec and in others, you would just render to an uncompressed format like "Animation", then import that into the Avid.
