I just wanted the pieces to go off the screen as they shatter. They were constrained by the boundaries of the imported image, but once I pre-comped, all was well. Thanks! David Bark Lightshine Product

I have a 3 camera shoot in the edit bay. 2 xdcam and 1 DVCpro from a P2 card. When I lay one of the xd tracks on top of the P2 track, all is well (for editing). When I lay the 2nd xd track on top, of

Actually, just hitting unlimited RT did the trick. It's an orange line, but at least I can see it. I don't know who shot these 4:55 segments, but there are dozens, so syncing and doing Multiclip isn't

Trying to finger out how to best emulate an effect I saw on "The Vampire Diaries." It's a static frame with one character zipping across a room with lightning speed. Just a blur, really. (Cut to: Usua

Yeah, but you won't like it. Shoot the room (non moving camera.) Let everyone react, etc. Clear the actors off screen. Have your actor walk through the screen with two people holding a greenscreen beh
Particles Along a Path

I'm almost to the Air Motion Path section of the Particular User Guide, but it looks like that's all about controlling particles after they're emitted. This is actually raising a number of questions.

Hi guys. HVX was set and recorded video at 480i 24p. (Recorded to P2 card.) When I brought the footage into FCP, ii's 29.97. I know I've gotten 23.98 into FCP at 720. Is this some kind of pull down my
Re: fps not matching from camera to FCP
by Shane Ross 9 years ago
Well, 480i is a 29.97 format. 24p will get you the film look, but remain at 29.97. 720p24 does 24p in a 60 frame format...UNLESS you choose 720p 24PN. Then it shoots 23.98...24p NATIVE. 1080i24p is al
