Thanks for your quick reply baf2681. You’re now officially my favourite reviewer.
I’m glad I could help at least a little bit. Personally I have never used Maya neither have worked with animation much, but I think the easiest solution would be to change the project’s frame rate to 25fps in case Maya “stretches” your animation accordingly.
I have one other idea. You could export 24fps images from Maya, then render them with some video editing software as 24fps uncompressed video. Then import the rendered video into a new 25fps project and stretch the video in the timeline to fit your desired length. For video editing I mostly use Sony Vegas Pro, which has a supersampling feature. In this case it would basically calculate the differences between the “stretched” frames. The output actually doesn’t look bad, but you have to be aware that if you convert your 24fps footage to 25fps there will always be some level of either quality degradation, ghosting or jitter.
You need to render your footage as interlaced. That will solve your jittery motion problems on television. For YouTube it’s best if you render your footage progressive (deinterlace / blend fields / adaptive discard fileds kind of option in your rendering software). What program do you use for rendering?
I’m not sure at what framerate YouTube plays files, but every video uploaded on YouTube is processed and converted by YouTube. So, if YouTube plays files at 30fps it will convert your uploaded video accordingly.
More information about interlaced and progressive video here.
Thank you both for reply. In my uploads I always include a help file for less technical users where I explain that they have to deinterlace the footage if they’re seeing unwanted horizontal stripes/lines.
However, if someone would like to use my footage for a television project, I think they would rather have original interlaced footage.
Like felt_tips said, I would be very grateful for some clarification from the staff or reviewers: interlaced footage – yes, better quality or no, more friendly to the average user?
I’m fairly new to the VideoHive and I apologize in advance if this was answered somewhere before. I found one similar thread but I couldn’t get a right answer from it.
Today one of my uploaded items was rejected. One of the reasons was interlacing. Now I’m unsure whether should I delete my other uploads in queue and fix them or not.
I was under the impression that 1080 50i was some sort of a standard, so most of my uploads are interlaced. I can of course deinterlace my footage and upload it in 1080 25p. But doesn’t that mean that some of the picture information will be lost?
Normally I wouldn’t be even asking, but my other two interlaced uploads are already accepted. Now I’m wondering if the reviewer maybe didn’t notice that and accepted them “by mistake”?
From now on I think I’ll just shoot with 50 progressive frames to avoid the confusion – that would be ok to upload, right?
I give my warm fuzzies to baf2681 who reviewed and accepted my first upload on VideoHive
So, Constantis, how many videos have you received up until now? I really hope that this idea of yours works out as planned.
