It's almost laughable how much time and energy are spent faking "old tech" artifacts to get that look in a film or video project. There are a number of tutorials here and also at VideoCopilot.net, tha

There are potentially a number of issues here, which I don't think have to do with compression at all. Ideally I need to know more about how you are keying this footage before being able to give you a

My general approach is perform at least basic color and lighting correction to any clip before I start addressing any kind of roto work. Even if the director wants this sequence to look like it's occu

If I understand you correctly, what you'd want to do is put the clip with the graffiti underneath the clip where you've removed it, then use a mask on the upper layer which animates over time to make

Probably the best way to handle that is to use Effects Adjust Colors Curves on the layer, and bring the lower end of the main curve upward just a bit. You can also try adjusting each of the Red, Green

I think I have an idea what you're trying to do... It's possible, at least in Audition. (Not sure if Soundbooth has this effect.) You might try the "Dynamic Delay" effect. * The original delayed slide

Re: Premiere Pro CS3 all audios suddenly lost

Okay, you need to clarify what you mean by "lost". If you are getting a "Cannot find file" type of message when opening the project, then most likely the location of the audio files has been changed.

Just a wild guess but I think perhaps the AVI file is recorded with a compression that, when viewed frame by frame in Premiere Pro, results in only parts of the image being displayed. AVI is a file fo
