Hi,

 

I am wanting to export a series of different graphics indivually from Illustrator to then be arranged into a stop motion video in Premiere Pro and then export the video from there. However, I can't seem to export a high quailty video, everytime its slightly blurry. Is there a way to create high quality graphics videos with these programs?

Premiere supports Ai files.

Drawback is they are rasterized on import.

Yes, use After Effects instead of Premiere Pro. In After Effects you can tick the Continuously Rasterize switch for the vector graphic and that will give you razor sharp output.

It depends on the needs, but any intermediate codec if you want to use the animation in Premiere Pro.

What about using Dynamic Link to add the Ae comp to the Pr sequence? Then you only have to make one export decision. And you get live updates when you make changes in Ae.

I try to avoid DL most of the time it does not do as advertised.

I've had good success with it over the years. I agree that the "Replace with After Effects Composition" command is flaky, but if you are very careful with your Ae project names, and if you add the Ae comp before doing any work in Ae, it works. 

If you use the following method to get the comp into Pr, It's very reliable:
  1. In Adobe Premiere Pro, choose File > Adobe Dynamic Link > Import After Effects Composition. ...
  2. In Adobe Premiere Pro, choose an After Effects project file and click Open. ...
  3. Drag one or more compositions from the After Effects Project panel to the Adobe Premiere Pro Project panel.

Regardless of whether a DI or DL is used, the key is Roger's suggestion to use Ae's Continuously Rasterize function to keep your graphics sharp.

Replace with Ae comp works fine. Its the updating from Ae to Pr that is flaky. Hence the advies to use intermediate files.

Dynamic Link has too many issues and chokes Premiere Pro projects too often. I never recommend it, for anything. For live updates, Edit Original is as good when working with intermediates.

Save them as .ai via File > Save in Illustrator and make sure that the Document Color Mode is RGB.

 

what would be your reccomended work flow for something like this 

 

When the file has been saved in Illustrator, just use File > Import in After Effects and make sure that Import As is set to Composition - Retain Layer Syles. Personally i work mostly with logos and type made in Illustrator, so i do not have so much more knowledge than this when it comes to workflow between Ai and Ae.

 

If you need more help i recommend to post your questions here: After Effects on Adobe Support Community
