Idle hissing / noise
by Mike Browning 7 years ago
This is not a noise issue with audio files or audio tracks, but with the program itself... I get a low but noticeable hissing from my monitors when Premiere Pro CS5 is merely active (not when playing

No, these are professional audio monitors, not built into the displays. On one work station, I have Yorkvilles, the other KR8's... running out of a Presonus interface and the other from a Blackmagic D

Thanks for the quick - albeit abrasive - replies. Didn't really answer my question though. 1) Bob - Inexpensive is often relative. I'm certainly not looking for top of the line (whose budget really al
DVD Recorder WITHOUT Menu

Spent hours searching the interwebs and the COW for this one. No solid leads. (apologies if this is not the applicable forum). I am looking for a DVD recorder that records a DVD without the canned men

Thanks a ton. I love simply answers :) You're right about the Pioneer PRV-9000 - not even a used one available. Reckon I'm going with the Panasonic. You'd think this would be a standard option in all

Hi all, Been considering adding an SSD to my Mac Pro to run Lion, while keeping my current boot disk intact. My RAID was set-up with Disk Utility, so I assume it's a software only RAID. My question is

Thanks Steve. Many of my fears are articulated in this thread: http: forums.macrumors.com archive index.php t-1192277.html I'd hate to boot up in Lion and discover my RAID partition has been destroyed
CS5 on Windows 7 crashing ridiculously often

Sounds like an isolated problem then, rather than some weird combo of drivers and other hardware. Would a specific driver version fix the issue or would I need a new graphics card If a new card, then

Re: Bluring effects

I usually make a solid, add a dark blue white ramp effect, and lower the opacity. Then I use a video layer or picture as reflection. Simple, but you can pass it off as glass. Match the ramp to fit you

Re: Mask/Shape Issues?

Yea it's one of the annoying additions in CS3. You have to make sure your solid is selected before you double click on the tool, otherwise it'll make a new "shape" layer, which you know is different f

by Mike Browning 11 years ago
I think (correct me if this doesn't get your result) what you want to do is parent the camera's position and point of interest properties to a null layer. I know A.Kramer does this a lot to make camer

Might just be that your record monitor is set to "automatic quality" - look at the bottom of the viewer and click on the button with the three circles (red, green, blue) and at the bottom of the drop

Also there is another method but not as effective. This might not completely solve your problem but it's a step in the right direction. It won't be as render intensive anyway. Assuming you are staying

Canon XH-A1 capture in Media Composer
by Mike Browning 12 years ago
I've read on the AVID site that Media Composer does not support Canon's 24F mode. Is this just via FireWire and can still capture as 24fps from a DV deck Or am I screwed if I'm hoping to edit Canon 24

by Mike Browning 12 years ago
Also should add for those who aren't Canon users, '24F' is different from '24p', so it captures differently. Just so you know there is a distinction. I haven't seen any patch notes from Avid highlight

Encore doesn't support importing projects, or having more than one project opened at a time. The only shortcuts I can offer is you can save your menus as templates, but that doesn't retain button link
