View Full Version : render problems please help

Hey all,
I'm having a couple of problems getting some demo reel clips ready for my website. I'm using After Effects and I'm having diffuculty with a few things.
1) First, I rendered out my clips out of Maya as a targa sequence. When I bring the image sequence into After Effects, along with the audio wav. file that I animated to, the animation and the audio are completely out of sync. I tried rendering out of Maya at both 24 and 30 frames per second. I also noticed that the audio and video file are not the same lenth in the timeline. How do I get them both in sync?
2)Second, I'm looking for compression settings to be able to put my demo reel on a webpage. I rendered out with a DivX codec, and got a reasonable file size (15 Mb) for a 1 minute clip, but when I play it, only the audio plays and not the video.
3) Third, I tried to render out the reel as a Quicktime mov., but for a 1 minute clip I get about 60 Mb. How do I get a smaller file size for a mov. clip?
Basically I'm looking for settings for both avi. and mov. files in After Effects for the smallest file size possible with best quality. Any help is appreciated.
