Chapter 2. Importing Footage into a Project > Interpretation of Footage

Interpretation of Footage

In this chapter, you learned how to use the Interpret Footage dialog box to help After Effects properly interpret alpha channels, field order, 3:2 pulldown, frame rate, looping, pixel aspect ratio, and EPS options. Chances are, you'll use the same settings on several items within a project. Fortunately, After Effects allows you to copy and paste these settings, so you won't have to revisit the Interpret Footage dialog box every time. Starting with After Effects 4.1, you can also customize the "rules" After Effects uses to determine interpretation automatically.

To reapply the Interpret Footage command to other footage items:

1.
In the Project window, select a footage item that uses interpretation settings you want to apply to other items.

2.
Choose File > Interpret Footage > Remember Interpretation (Figure 2.94).

Figure 2.94. Choose File > Remember Interpretation to copy interpretation settings from one clip.


3.
In the Project window, select one or more footage items to which you want to apply the interpretation settings (Figure 2.95).

Figure 2.95. Select other clips to which you want to apply the same inter pretation settings.


4.
Choose File > Interpret Footage > Apply Interpretation (Figure 2.96).

Figure 2.96. Select File > Interpret Footage > Apply Interpretation to paste the interpretation settings to the selected footage items.


The interpretation settings are applied to the selected footage items.
