Importing Motion Footage

Motion footage sources include video digitized from analog video sources (such as Hi8 or BetaCamSP), digital video (such as DV transferred via Firewire, or Digital Betacam via SDI), and film (scanned as Cineon files, or transferred to video using 3:2 pulldown).

The process of importing motion footage varies little from other types of files. But as you have already learned, different formats must be interpreted by After Effects according to their attributes and your requirements. In the following sections, you'll learn about the Interpret Footage command that is used to correctly identify motion footage's frame rate, field order, 3:2 pulldown, and the pixel aspect ratio. The Interpret footage command also enables you to automatically loop footage, and set the display quality of EPS footage files. You can even learn to edit After Effects'internal settings.
