post AETTR workflow
« on: October 13, 2013, 03:25:43 PM »
Hello there.

I was wondering if anyone will be so kind to share the way they work post with time-lapse AETTR, flicker and stuff.

OK, here is what I'm doing so far.

I import to Lightroom, play with setting, export to tiff, use QT 7 to export Prores 422 HQ.

I also did a night to day time lapse with AETTR and av ramp...
color and exposure is much better for night but for day color is wrong and a bit too dark..
is there a smart way to ramp tempeture and exposure, without going one by one? i got like 450 pics..

I don't use After Effets and I edit on FCPX...have Lightroom..

anyone has a good workflow for this situation?

thanks in advance...will share a few timelapse test soon..thanks.

I really don't like Lr for doing timelapse, it's just so slow and I end up getting all these thousands of pictures mixed into my photo library. Bridge/ACR works great for me and the Br preview is super fast, so I can "playback" with it at almost real time, which is great for manual deflickering, which I've had to do several times b/c my post deflicker settings were inadequate.

I know you say you don't use AE, but IDK what I would do without it. My workflow is pretty dang efficient and non-destructive from original CR2 to final compiled timelapse with music, titles, etc:

Br/ACR (.xmp modifications) => AE Camera Raw Sequence => Dynamic Link to Adobe Premiere Pro => Final Render

At any point in this workflow if I notice something like a flicker I missed I can go all the way back to Br and fix it, and all I have to do is just re-render.

I just finished working on this and had to do a good bit of manual deflickering.

I use LR5 and LRTimelapse - they work together to smooth out your exposures, and any other settings you have applied in LR.

http://lrtimelapse.com

The free version can process up to 400 photos (edits the metadata only) however you can stitch together 2 videos after you've completed the editing.

I also find that I get the absolute best quality video, by exporting 1920x1080px jpegs at full quality, then using Quicktime Pro (or similar) to create an image sequence video at 30fps.

Hope this helps?
