I am a long time fan of your tutorials. And just when I think I know a lot about CS6, you reveal some gems I wasnt aware of. Your clear communication and pleasant accent make your tutorials a very positive experience. Thank you!

Re: Tutorial: AE Basics 55: Export 1 - Dynamic Link

I am SO excited about this feature! Thank you for demonstrating it so clearly.

I have a question: can I use proxies to lighten the load (so to speak) like I currently do in AE? Right now if I have a project that has AE on every shot (ala short format, music video), I'll just finish it there. But the issue becomes my poor little macbook runs out of memory and I start getting weird renders. So I'll make up proxies and use those for shots I'm not working on.

Is this something that carries over dynamic linking? Can you suggest a workflow using the DL feature that does something like a proxy?

Thanks again for the tutorial.

Ben

PS I apologize if this is covered in the literature. I was looking for some documentation when I came across your video.

Hi Ben

Thanks for getting in touch, I'm really pleased that you're able to use this powerful feature.

Basically, whatever you have in AE is what shows up in PP. So if you are using proxies in AE and dynamic link the comp with those proxies in it that that is what you will get in PP.

If you want to create a proxy of a comp, then select the comp in the project panel and right click on it and choose either to set a proxy if you have a suitable file or to create a proxy if you want AE to make one for you.

For example, if you choose to create a proxy still, it will add the comp to the render que set up and ready to go to create a still image proxy. Render it out and it will replace the comp in the project panel and wherever it is used in your project.

That will then flow through to PP if you use DL.

Also, remember that if you have a heavy comp in AE (or for that matter a heavy layer which you can pre-compose) you can always choose Composition > Pre-render which will render out the comp and then has a default action to import and replace the slow moving comp with all effects rendered. That should speed up your system.

Hope this helps
Andrew

Hi Camille

Welcome to the world of encoding. With Camtasia (which I use all the time) you have low movement tutorial types of videos so they can use low bit rates as they don't have to cope with lots of fast changes in contrast, transitions etc. However, with you own video you are going to be working on lots of high contrast changing video with effects and transitions and so you need a good bit rate to cope with those changes or else the whole thing will look terrible.

What you can do is in media encoder, add a setting to you sequence and then click on the setting name a wait while the settings box comes up. Then, go about half way down and look for the video tab and scroll down to the bitrate settings.

In there, where it probably says VBR 1 or 2 pass, change it to CRB (constant bit rate) and try encoding a small sample of your work. You can select a small part of the sequence on the output tab on the LHS and at the bottom, move the small triangles closer together to get a smaller area to render out as a test.

See how it looks, and if you can cope with even lower quality start moving the bitrate slider down and do some more test renders.

Hope this helps
Andrew

Thanks Andrew!

This has really helped a lot. before i watched this I tried at first to export it as a premier pro project and had all those same problems exactly like you showed lol.
Then finally i rendered it as a flash movie but every change i had to do and render all over again etc.
this is really a time saver!

One problem i still have however is how to get a premier pro project exported into a reasonable size file.
I tried using the Media Encoder as you recommended me once before but even when I choose the lowest youtube size settings my 9 minute badquality homemade video turns out into a 659mb size thing that takes 500 minutes to upload!!
(our connection upload speed here is 1mb/second)
Other videos i edited with camtasia never took so long.
Is there some setting to make it smaller somehow?

THanks
Camille

AE Basics - A Creative COW series for new users of Adobe After Effects. Having recently completed a training course, Andrew Devis was asked about some more advanced uses for the repeater tool when working with shape layers in After Effects. Andrew has produced 2 'Extra' tutorials to go with his earlier tutorial on the repeater. In this first 'Extra' tutorial, he shows how to create a simple man with shapes, repeat him across screen and then down screen with a couple of repeating options to create different looks and then how to scale the whole animation on the screen to give space for additional motion graphics work. In the next tutorial, he will show how to create shapes from text, how to rotate that shape into a circle and then how to move the circle into a line and how to create other very interesting looks with the use of the repeater tool.
