View Full Version : Rendering technique- time saver?

05 May 2009, 10:34 AM
This is probably a dumb question but...

I was talking with my motion graphics teacher a while back about using Time warp in After Effects to add motion blur, or slow down the video. He said something about it generating in between frames.

So I got this idea where you would render out every other frame in Max or Maya and then use After Effects to generate the missing frames with time warp, or some other effect to save time.

Is this a good technique to use? And I haven't really seen anything used like this so has it been done before?

It can be used to save time if you have a really tight deadline, but I wouldn't recommend it. it's far better to render your animations at the frame rate you require.

Optical flow techniques may generate artifacts and need twaking to get nice results. It's not like pressing a button and voila. So at the end of the day may be as time consuming as doing the full render. Re-timing techniques degrade the quality of the image
