The After Effects Videos Don't Seem To Work with Facebook Videos

0 Members and 1 Guest are viewing this topic.

I created a 60 sec Facebook Video Header and uploaded it to Facebook. When it plays the After Effects Videos do not display in the dimensions defined.

I've tried the Logo Search Animation Video and the Elegant Spinning Text plus I've tried a couple of the Kinetic Videos. All of them do not fit within the Facebook dimensions.

Here's a an example: https://www.screencast.com/t/GQzlPgAnVi

Thoughts?

After Effect templates are designed for a specific screen ratio so my guess (it is only a guess, but Jon will comment) is that they aren't usable on the Facebook header videos.

If they were resized to match the different ratio they'd look weird.

After Effects clips currently only fit the landscape (16:9) videos.

I hope to add some AE clips for the other sizes soon.

Thanks Amin and Jon...still love the video tool. I worked through a modification for my intro slide and it will do for now.

Starting to get the hang of it. Wish the rendering time in between actions, i.e. change text, adding an image, animation, etc...didn't take so long. I suppose that is what is needed so the rendering time on the download isn't as long.

When you know you're going to make a lot of changes to an individual slide, uncheck the 'Auto-Refresh Slide' checkbox below the slide. When you're done making all of your changes, click the Refresh button next to that checkbox. That will greatly speed up the time it takes to create each slide.
