Hi guy. I need an answer quick its urgent. Can someone pls tell me if AfterEffects can split videos. Like split a long video to some small videos. And can it help me dub some audio?
It would be great if anyone could explain how to do these tasks. Cause I'm completely new to it.

i dont know anything about AE. but i do know windows movie maker can split videos and you can dub it. the tools are basic, but it gets the job done. i used it for music videos for schoool projects.

I know that too but Movie Maker doesnt open DAT files. And I dont have a video convertor right now.
And guys I've got another problem. In AF I tried to import the file. Its a DAT file. But the video doesnt get opened. I dont know what to do. Pls help me.

what about downloading a trial program?
09-09-2006, 08:17 PM
I tried but as it is trial it only converts 50% of the video.

there was a trial prog i used to use a while back called eo video. it was a trial but ther only limitation was it only lasted for 3o days. i can't remember what all it converted though.

Anyways now I'm using a converter my friend bought. But it doesnt look very good. But atlast my question reamins the same can AfterEffects split videos cause I trust it more than Movie Maker.

no. it can't. Well, not really. When you open a new file you have to set the timeline to how long you want it to be.
So unless you know where you want to cut the video your screwed. But if you do, then you could just render out parts instead of the whole thing. Then move the movie around in the timeline till you render all the parts you want.

I was waiting so long for the answer that at last I found it out my self. Anyways I'm not using it for spliting. But tell me can it be used to dub the audio of the video.
09-09-2006, 11:12 PM
yes it can be
it can do any hell thing to a video !!

yeah, you can render out just audio and add new audio.

I just saw your thread, of course you can split your videos
You can make different compositions, load your footage, and set the in an out, shift + [ for in, and shift + ] for out, there you trim your file, then, in another composition put the same file but with you different in an out.
Then when you have all your compositions, go to the render queue, and from your project window drop all your compositions, of I forgot, in every composition move your in and to the lenght or you footage, so you wont render black frames.
Now you can render all your files at the same time.
I'm trying to post a screen grab, but there is something wrong with the server I thibk

Yeah I know that now. I found it out myself last night. nThe only problem I was facing was that the file was a DAT file but later I got a converter and gotmy job done.

Do you have Premiere? For future projects I would recommend that for editing/cutting, etc. since it gives more of an intuitive interface. AfterEffects is good for, well, effects. And compositing, and things of that nature. At least, that's what I've noticed.
