Ok, you’ve created a 30,000-frame animation that needs to be deployed to the web as an animation and to DVD as a movie. (Don’t judge me. Seriously.) Anyway, you’ve done this, and you’ve got all your scenes exported and whatever and the website looks great. On to the DVD production. Let’s see, just export an uncompressed video file, stick into After Effects color-correct and export as you need. Nope! Hang on there, not so fast. Literally–if your CPU can’t render the animation at 30fps, it won’t render to video at 30fps…in other words, you’d think that Flash would be smart enough to process each frame during the export ensuring that no frames get dropped, because we only care about the high-quality output of the video–but no such luck. So, we’ve been using this utility for what seems like 20 years (ok, since 2001) but what a HACK. I mean seriously, Adobe. The only other way I was able to get good video from Flash where the animation was too complex for 30fps was to reduce the framerate of my animation to like 1fps, export, and then pump up the framerate to 30fps in After Effects. HA. HA. HA. If anyone has a method, or I’m being a total moron, I would gladly accept public humiliation in exchange for knowing how the #$(*@# to do this properly. Kthx.
