On a new Avid V8.8.3 PC setup I am having an issue with importing items with an Alpha Channel. When I bring in a PSD or Mov file with an Alpha channel the clip shows as black in the source window and

When you open the newest Photoshop it starts with a nice full page of recent items in large thumbnail view. Is there a way to access that view once inside PS Or is there a way to get Bridge to display
Text animation in depth

I have done AE for many years and done lots of text animations but I will be honest and say I really don't fully understand many parts of the interface. It seems that every tutorial does a light overv

Thanks for that but I am clueless about Automator. The tutorial seems to be showing the Automator in action but not how to program it. Will this work with commands and not just TEXT fill ins Frank
Photoshop layer duration
by Frank Muldoon 7 years ago
I am frustrated by the way Premiere imports layers of a Photoshop file. It looks like it brings in the layers as 5 second clips with in and out marks. The hassle is when I an editing these to the sequ
Re: Photoshop layer duration
by Frank Muldoon 7 years ago
Let me add my additional concerns over the complete lack of actual editing based preferences in Premiere. The ability to customize or alter the way Adobe has decided I should edit is quite unsettling.

Shortcuts

Anybody know how to disable Command-M from minimizing individual windows in 10.6.3 It is a useless and annoying shortcut for me. I use it in After Effects. Thanks Frank
command-m change
by Frank Muldoon 9 years ago
For as long as I have used After Effects Command-M was the standard keyboard shortcut to make a movie. Now for some reason it is changed to Control-Command-M. The Command-M minimizes the current windo
Re: command-m change

Yes my muscle memory is locked to Command-M. But in a larger OS10.6 sense I have no use for a command that puts individual windows into the dock then to get them back you have to go to the dock and cl

All great points. But none of those great features actually make the basic job of editing any easier. I have my issues with basic interface. I am no Avid fanboy by any means. They still can't match fr

Is a cut a transition?

Re: Is a cut a transition?
by Al J. Marschke 13 years ago
My two cents... A wipe or dissolve is considered a transition "effect" like a push or DVE move. Down under I believe they refer to a cut as a "join". In a cut or join you are in fact transitioning to
