Determining frame requested by After Effect (AEGP Plugin)

November 30 0

Hi,
I am writing Source Generator(AEIO)(File Importer) plugin for Adobe After Effect.
Frames from file are to provided in AEIO_DrawSparseFrame callback.
But AEIO_DrawSparseFrame does not tell which frame it wants.
Also if we treat tr as current frame time in AEIO_DrawSparseFramePB structure, then also there are no consecutive calls to frame time when we render (i.e there are calls to frame number 0,2,4...).
Does anyone has any idea to determine the frame number required by After Effect and in consecutive sequence (i.e 0,1,2,3 ...).
Thanks

Huh? What are the comp settings? They must be 720x480 for NTSC or 720x576 for PAL with teh respective correct pixel aspect ratios. Also make sure to disable/enable audio as needed in bothe the main Output Module settings >>>and<<< the MPEG-II exporter (just in case this will be the next error that pops up.
