Problems with DXV in AE 2018 and 2019

Post by martinb » Mon Dec 17, 2018 13:20

Anybody else having trouble using dxv files in After Effects CC 2018 or later?
Older version works well.

Yes I just experienced some issues re-rendering some artwork in AE2019. The rendered files seem to be unstable.

Zoltan, I'll send you the 2 files I was working on directly.

For me issues appear after 6.0.9 release. Importer from 6.0.9 seems to works OK.

Now I'm on 6.1.1 and decided not to use DXV codec in production.

As a note, I've been testing AE and AME and I'm getting similar issues with Quicktime Animation and ProRes 4444.

For a project, I had to re-render some files to slow them down 600% with frame blending and I ended up having to use Motion 5 to export to ProRes 4444 then convert to DXV3 in Alley.

Thanks, this will be fixed in 6.1.2.
Turns out, the frame prediction for decoding could cause random frames to appear.
