Particle effect: throw multiple 2D images around the screen?
by Adam Spencer 2 years ago
I want to achieve a sort of Flash-style effect by having a fountain of custom 2D images spurting on the screen. For example, a clipart flower or icon smiley, etc. I'm thinking a particle generator plu

Thanks for that, I was looking for more of a plugin solution... AE is a bit over the top.
Which hard disk for editing? 2.5", 3.5"?
by Adam Spencer 4 years ago
I do amateur editing, so don't want need to pay for a RAID set up. But I'm a bit conflicted about 2.5" vs 3.5". I'll be using an SSD for the OS drive. As for storage, I was initially going to go with
Re: Which hard disk for editing? 2.5", 3.5"?
by Adam Spencer 4 years ago
Thanks for the replies. To answer some questions: I'd prefer 2.5" simply because it's smaller. I went mini-ITX years ago, although kept my 3.5". I'm trying to avoid bulky legacy components in a new bu
Where is my autosave file?

I was working on a project in Ppro when that stupid autosave dialog box popped up. Even after 5 mins, it refused to go away, so tried cancelling it. But program stopped responding. Now When I restarte

CS5.5 Clips Not Fading to/from Smoothly
by Peter Corbett 8 years ago
I'm seeing not very complete fades to and from black on CS5.5; say when a title is over-layed. At the first first frame (or last) of the dissolve, the image abruptly cuts out. There is not a smooth tr
Re: CS5.5 Clips Not Fading to/from Smoothly
by Adam Spencer 6 years ago
I am STILL having this problem. It still happens in CS6. Really aggravates me because I have to manually fade every single clip that I want to dissolve. It doesn't matter whether I use hardware or sof
Can't open Premiere CS5.5 projects in CS6?

I've installed a trial version of CS6, and I can't open any of my CS5.5 projects. It just comes up with an error message: "This project contained a sequence that could not be opened. No sequence previ

I tried that, but all I got was one long clip containing my video. I could play it back on the timeline, but all the individual clips and edits were missing. It was just one long clip.
What is 1080/50p (or 1080/60p)?
by Adam Spencer 7 years ago
I'm looking at getting a camcorder that records in 1080 50p, but I simply cannot find a decent explanation of it. Why was this format introduced and what are the benefits I can only deduce that the ca
Re: What is 1080/50p (or 1080/60p)?
by Taz Bari 6 years ago
Hi My question is that if you convert the 50p to 25 does it effect the speed of the shot. From my basic understanding when we change frame rates speed changes so i assume if i convert it to 25fps it w
CS6 - Keyframe won't snap to end of clip, it snaps just *before* the end
by Adam Spencer 7 years ago
If I'm moving an image across the screen, the final keyframe will not snap to the end of the clip. This is with the keyframe timeline zoomed-out. Once I snap the keyframe to the end, I have to manuall
Re: CS6 - Keyframe won't snap to end of clip, it snaps just *before* the end
by Adam Spencer 7 years ago
I can clearly see the image stop moving before it fades out. This means the keyframe did not snap to the absolute end of the clip like it was supposed to. This should not happen, and did not happen in

I'm trying BCC 7 in Vegas 10, but it just seems buggy. I'm trying to use some of the auto-animated effects such as rain, comet, and clouds. Some of the presets for these effects will playback fine, ot

Hi, I'm just using the effect on a solid black matte generated in Vegas, or on an empty event. My project is 1080p 25fps. I just tried changing the export preset to one of Vegas' own MP4 presets witho
Where to get cheesy 2D effects for use with text?
by Adam Spencer 9 years ago
I'm looking for Powerpoint-style text effects - where the text spins into place, bounces, zooms close then shrinks down to size, etc. I don't want wipes, 'organic', or 3D transitions - which seem to b
Re: Where to get cheesy 2D effects for use with text?
by Adam Spencer 9 years ago
Thanks for your suggestions. Track Motion doesn't really help as I want to avoid using a hundred keyframes. I've never really played with Protype Titler. It looks like it only has 9 effects presets. I
How to stop Vegas from resizing imported images to full screen?

Hi, I'm capturing to a hard disk with over 500GB free. My C: itself also has 400GB free, so even if it was accidentally capturing to the C:, there's plenty of space. I've tried with both drives and h
