After Effects 5.0 jerky motion.
I resized 6 images in Photoshop 6 to 1920x1080. I imported them separately into After Effects 5.0 and performed some simple pans and zoom outs. I then dropped them all into Final Cut Pro 7 and rendered to a Quick Time movie formatted to 720x480. I've tried rendering as both progressive and interlaced. Once the piece is uploaded to my website the image quality looks good, but the motion is real jerky. I've also added a voice over. The imported AE images were compressed using H.246. The Final Cut render was done using Apple Pro Res 422. I'm using a Mac Pro (2008) 1T HD. 18 G Ram quad core. The files I'm using are on an external wire fire 1T HD. Started out just trying to get my feet wet, and now I'm drowning...help!
