Hi, Ive saved a movie created in Lumion 3 as a 58 second MP4 movie clip, high resolution, 30 frames a second, quite a few effects added.
Im playing around in After Effects, which i have just discovered and looks like fun.
However the playback is terrible, almost unusable for me. Everytime I move the preview slider or press play it lags terribly or wont play at all.
Ive imported a different video clip from a camera and it works fine so Im wondering if its something to do with the way Lumion encodes the MP4 file. Ive tried converting the file to .mov but it then wont play at all in AE for some reason.
My rig is fairly reasonable, i5 3570k cpu, 12 gigs ram, 120gb SSD for the primary drive, two 1gb video AMD video cards running together in crossfire mode. Windows 7 64. Ive downloaded the latest free Lumion 3.2.1.
What can I do to make high quality saved movies workable in After Effects, any ideas anyone???
