Soo… I finished my project on friday a few minutes before 5p.m. Now it’s Sunday 3.30p.m. and I still didn’t submit it. Why? Oh well because I can’t export it from Adobe Premiere. I tried everything…
- I tried to change settings.
- I redid the whole thing.
- I tried to export sound and the video sepparately to find out which one is causing the problem. It wasn’t the sound.
- Then I exported images made in TVpain which were fine.
- It turned out that the problem was caused by frames exported from Autodesk Maya.
- I exported half of them and it worked. Then I tried the other half and I got UNKNOWN ERROR again…(I don’t understand…)
- I tired to find which freames in the 2nd half were faulty. I failed. BTW every exporting takes around 20-30 minutes…
- Decided to re-save 2nd part with Photoshop’s”Automate”. It took about 2 hours…
- I went back to Premiere and replaced Maya files with Photoshop’s files.
- Everything seemed okay
- Exported it.
- Tried to play it. Video is glitching, in some places the sound is out.
- Decided to try to use After Effects.
- I’ve written down all the timing from premiere to make it quicker (this is hard to understand to everyone except me but it was like 5 in the morning…)
- Set everything up. But it turns out that even though I set frame rate to 24fps the video plays much faster than on 25fps in Premiere. (Video should be around 1 minute 40 seconds long when in After Effects is around 1 minute 15 seconds….)
- I know that after exporting it from After Effects I can stick it in to Premier and just slow it down to synchronise it with the sound, but how can I know that after hours of working on it when I slow it down all movement and transitions will look okay?
- Once again I decide to try one more time with Premiere. This time I’ll re-save all of the frames from Autodesk Maya. And let’s hope it will work…
Deadline was on Friday. I really hope that this whole situation explains why I didn’t submit my work on time and it proves that I wasn’t being lazy. (Honestly I was very happy with myself when I first set it up to export, I was so proud for making it on time…)
Don’t count your chickens until they’re hatched.
