I am wrestling with the help manual.
I want to pan across a collage of photos - which naturally have straight edges. With anti-aliasing turned off, the TIFF sequence “shudders” on playback - as if the player can’t read it off the disk fast enough. Slight starts and stops make it look jittery. I thought it might be improved with anti-aliasing, but that seems to add a smearing artifact even at somewhat higher settings (Best/1x1/4x4/5%/Catmull/200%). See attached file S203. I switched to Geometry at 200% MIP and still get the smearing (see attached file S204). So my question is, am I overlooking something very fundamental? Or is it impossible to get a smooth, jitter-free “Ken Burns” motion pan using Cinema?
I’ve tried every filter and setting I can find in After Effects and Premiere to try and smooth it out, but they each add a crummy artifact of their own, so things sort of stack up. Seems like it should be able to work straight out of Cinema without fussing with Adobe settings.
Sorry - don’t need you to spoon feed me. Just point me in the right direction and I can sort it out. Right now I’m staring at a blank wall.
