OK so I know the C100 does't shoot at higher frame rates for smooth slow motion - yet I see people talking about shooting at 50i and then importing on to a 25p timeline in premiere which gives you a p

OK thanks! Is it an issue that my C100 shooting 60i imports into Premiere Pro CC 2015 as 29.97i UFF Do I need to interpret this footage to 59.94i frame rate before the other stuff

Opening most recent sequence
by Dave Fleming 5 years ago
Hi All, One of the more annoying things that started occurring when I transitioned from CS6 to CC (and beyond) was that Premiere picks a random sequence to load when booting into a project instead of

depending a lot on the wine glass footage, you may be able to either key the wine as it is filling, or create a luma matte by crushing the blacks and whites to create a high contrast image to use as a

I'm adding closed captioning to :15 spots, so I'm doing it laboriously, creating them in Premiere Pro CC (not 2014). The 608 spec displays properly, but the 708 spec displays with periods between each
extending clip with 3D camera tracker

I have a 4 second clip that I 3D camera tracked and then added some 3D text to the scene. I now need to extend the clip 15 frames to account for a transition I'm doing to the incoming clip. The RAM pr

Locate media dialog confusing

This is my first run-in with relinking media in CC since coming from CS6. I was certainly impressed at how "intelligent" the program was supposed to be in finding missing media. But, that hasn't been

Matt, Dave, Thanks for the responses! Dave nailed it - it was the motion path on the incoming keyframe that had been adjusted that was causing the overshoot recoil look. I had wasted a fair bit of tim

I did read through that workflow but must admit to being a bit intimidated by all the steps involved. So, with these two workflows side by side, you see a noticeable quality jump with the longer workf

by Dave Fleming 8 years ago
Fair enough--that answers that. Another question: Would it make more sense to interlace the footage at 1920x1080 or to keep the progressive frames and jump down to 1280x720 59.94p Or does that make no
