CamStudio pipeline into After Effects CS4

edited July 2010 in General Discussion
Hi All,

I have found this CamStudio pipeline into After Effects CS4 to be working great so far. If anyone has other useful tip please jump right in :-)

< b>Step 1
The version I use is Camstudio is 2.0. (http://CamStudio.org)
---* The codec was:
---* "CamStudio Lossless Codec v1.4" or "ffdshow Video Codec".

The setting are:
---* Set Key Frames Every: 120
---* Capture Frames Every: 33
---* Playback Rate: 30

< b>Step 2
Then to convert the video I use "FLV to AVI MPEG WMV 3GP MP4 iPod" Converter it can be found here: (http://www.aone-soft.com//flv_to_avi_mpeg_wmv_3gp_mp4_ipod_converter.htm)

---* The version I use is "FLV to AVI MPEG WMV 3GP MP4 iPod" Converter is 5.0.0526
The settings are:
---* Output Format: H264 - AVC MPEG-4 Format (*.mp4)
---* Video Quality: Superb
---* Video Size: Keep Original Size

< b>Step 3
In After Effects I render out to:
---* Format: QuickTime Movie (I use the defalts)
---* Note: This will make a Large GB Sized file but this is how I keep the pixel quality perfect.

< b>Step 4
Next I use Adobe Media Encoder CS4
* Format: FLV | F4V
* Preset: FLV - Web Large, NTSC Source (Flash 8 and Higher)

< b>Step 5
Then to convert the video I use "FLV to AVI MPEG WMV 3GP MP4 iPod" Converter
---* Same settings

After all this I keep the pixel quality high and the file size down.

Cheers
