Also remembering to clear in and out before merging footage has been problematic. I find myself merging and re-merging the same footage over and over and over.

Re: connect a clip to another connected clip or storyline?
by Jeremy Garchow 5 years ago
I agree that it would be nice to be able to connect clips to connected clips. Compound clips can solve this problem, but they can be hard to work with sometimes as you can lose the relationship of the

Media Composer defaults to best quality while real time, but may not be the best quality overall. So changing those parameters may end up with a better conversion. On a somewhat related note, I blogge

I've have very good experiences with Pluraleyes and Avid. I find, if you try to sync more than 3 angles, it doesn't do a very good job, and of course the most important thing is that there is clean en

I am working with a bunch of 4x3 footage in a 16x9 seq. Additionally, I want to be able to do post moves (zooms and pans) on that footage. When I do the conversion in Pan and Scan fro 4 3 to 16 9, it'

Thanks Job! That's an interesting solution. I wish I had figured out about this a while ago. It still doesn't solve the problem of letting me "cheat" the aspect ration a bit without layering effects o
A/B side previews in trim mode disappear when clips have 3d warp effects on them

Ok, well this still makes no sense. If I am at 1:00 and I click and replace it with +10, I go to 1:10. If I click and replace with -10, I go to -0:00:00:10, before my comp begins. How do I go BACK 10
QT H264 exports don't look good at lower bit rates

Dunno if anyone else has experienced this. Out of Final Cut, Avid, or via Compressor, I could export an h264 QT at say 540p, 2,200 kbps and get a pretty darn good client approval video. But in Premier
