Editing Workflow
by akinonyx 12 years ago
This is my first post, and I hope it's in the right category. I have a question about my editing workflow. I use an NLE to edit all my tracks, then the parts that I want to bring into After Effects, I

Do you have to use uncompressed video Why not use lossless compression like PNG (if you are working with Quicktime) or almost lossless compression like Photo-JPEG at 100% quality (absolutely unnoticab

What exactly do you want to be on screen A colourful time-tunnel For this you could use Motion's particles. Check out the library of emitters and tweak from there. Marc -- www.marc-hermann.de
Complicated Pleasantville Effect

Hi there. Having shot everything with a nice warm red feel as there's lots of red apples in the shot, the director has just had an apiphany. Yup - let's make everything black and white apart from the

I'd agree with Oliver that you should use your compositing software's tracking feature on a per shot basis. Personally I'd do this with Eyeon's Fusion, but I guess it's the same in other programs: ass

any way to identify in the bin which clips are used in my timeline?
by Trevor Ward 14 years ago
I have about 70 clips in my bin. I think I've used about 40 of them in my timeline. Is there a way to identify what clips are being used and which ones aren't. Adobe Premiere 6.5 had that feature and

You could only select the sequence(s) you need and then use the media manager (careful: backup first!) to create a copy of your project with just the used bits from the sequence(s) being offline and r
Best way to export from Motion 2 into Final Cut Pro 5, working in DV?

I am working in DV in Final Cut Pro 5, and I would like to get the best quality from anything I bring in from Motion 2 into Final Cut Pro 5, I keep hearing use the Animation codec. I would like to hea
Re: Best way to export from Motion 2 into Final Cut Pro 5, working in DV?
by Marc Hermann 14 years ago
My favourite Quicktime codec for all things animated is Photo JPEG at 100% quality. It is not uncompressed, but it's practically impossible to tell the difference. If you want uncompressed use PNG. Bu

Forgot to add: The last piece is from a trailer that I edited; I did not edit the film itself. Oh, and it's in German, but even if you don't understand it the mood should hopefully still come across.

I, too, thought it was too long and I was never quite sure what you wanted to sell. If you're a one man shop trying to sell complete products (like the four types you list at the beginning) maybe you
How do you have two tracks of video playing at once?

I guess it's done in the "motion" tab somehow. Basically, I want to start off with footage of guy number 1 and then transition via wipe to both guy # 1 and guy number 2 in the same screen..... sort o
Re: How do you have two tracks of video playing at once?
by Marc Hermann 14 years ago
Or, instead of using keyframes on the crop, you could introduce the guy on V2 with an edge wipe, that will, of course, only reveal the cropped image. To be more exact with the timing you can double-cl

I was hoping that I had overlooked something. Mmmh, might consider getting a BCF as well. The BCR rocks with Reason and Motion, though :) Anyway, I found out that I can at least control the levels of
Can Motion do effects masks?

Hello, everyone, I usually do all my post work in the node-based Digital Fusion where I can restrict the area affected by a certain effect (e.g. blur) by simply adding an effects mask to the node. Thi
Re: Can Motion do effects masks?
by Marc Hermann 14 years ago
