I've poured through the 80 million after effects posts and still have not found my answer, and I feel that the question is relatively straight forward. Here is the situation:
I currently am editing a project using media composer 6. All footage has been transcoded to DNxHD 115. The project is finished. I simply want to add some lower thirds using after effects. My question is what is the best export format for me to send to after effects. Essentially, I dont want to lose quality after compressing and sending to after effects.
After I add the lower thirds in after effects the project is finished, and I will be converting it to a quicktime h264 for vimeo.
Now I am aware of Boris Transfer AE and Automatic duck, however I feel those are for much more involved projects. I simply have two instances in my sequence where I want to add a lower third. I feel like there must just be an easy way to export and finish in AE. http://www.editableclips.com/category/abstract-backgrounds.html
