Copy/Paste a title without altering it
by Jeff Gerst 9 years ago
I saw an old thread about this, but wanted to know if Premiere has updated this feature - Does AP CS5.5 allow you to copy and paste a title in a sequence and change it without changing the original. I

If you're on a mac, click and drag it while holding option. That will make a duplicate that you can edit without changing the first one. I will sometimes do a copy and paste, then option drag it up a

by Matt Campbell 7 years ago
We have a 7D with both the kit lens 18-135mm and a 50mm f1.4 prime. I use them both but am looking to step up our video work. As I'm just getting familiar with DSLRs what is a good general purpose len

by Gerrit Van Dyke 7 years ago
I'm hardly an expert, but having used both, I'd say that the 17-55mm is a better length for a crop sensor. Essentially, it's the same as a 24-70 on a full frame. Gives you a nice wide lens and portrai
