Hi all, I'm in a doozy of a pickle here. Here's the breakdown. I'm editing a one hour nature special. With 28 TB of footage, all the clips had proxies made for them. I have picture lock from the netwo

My apologies if you've already tried this: Can you take all of the proxies offline and then re-link your merged clips to the master video files and the secondary audio I Hate Television. I Hate It As

Hello, I have a comp that has 2 illustrator ai layers that are set to 'continuous rasterize'. I then also set the actual comp in my main comp to the same setting and scale it up to the size I want, an

I recently had this same obstacle. I got around it by creating a black solid layer above the comp that was being continuously rasterized, and then using a luma track matte. The black solid could chang

Hi guys- Going crazy here: I'm creating some simple custom shapes in AE and adding the TRIM PATHS feature to animate them (see image) "drawing" on. Essentially I have a comp with two shapes (a line ma

Thanks Vishesh. I don't think that's a practical solution, unfortunately. The line thickness has been used without incident or issue in several projects. The weight of the line has successfully been u

Youtube also processes in batches. Sometimes if you upload a 1080 file, it will process 320, 480, 720, and THEN 1080. It can take over a day to do so. visit ProMotion Arts

synced audio suddenly drifts, separately on both tracks

Hey guys, forgive the urgency, but got a project due Friday (2 days away) and just got handed a very strange issue. Allow me to overwhelm you with details: The setup: Interviews were recorded using a

by Kevin Knutson 8 years ago
Wouldn't you know, the camera went out with a videographer and the card was cleared before we archived a copy of the BPAV. Seems like that only happens when there's a problem to fix. Oof.

Lav was on channel one, and cam mic was channel two. However cam mic was recorded so low it might as well have been a mic in the next room over. Unfortunately, pick up shooting is out of the question,

Are the :90 clips consistent (as in, are they ALL exactly the same length, or just roughly ). Do you have access to a second deck Perhaps you can tape to tape duplicate and see if a fresh tape helps H

Re: stills are shaking after export/render

Dave is right that your images are too small, but that shouldn't give you the jumps that so frequently occur in FCP. Try what he says about motion (or after effects), but perhaps also try bringing you

You can use the "monitor out" BNC connection, found just next to the DC power. Might have to convert from BNC to RCA if your monitor doesn't have the BNC.

What kind of footage, and what do you mean by instant viewing If you need to show an edit, you can present it in full screen straight from the edit software. Or you can present an exported file in mos

There's something to be said for your professional image though. With the clients I shoot, if I showed up with an iphone teleprompter, I'd get blacklisted regardless of functionality.

Keylight is a tricky, but great keyer. Refresh your memory with their documentation. It is meant to handle motion blur, and indeed it can. It kind of bothers me that Screen Gain is the top slider, as
