workflow
by Mike Sullivan 3 years ago
I'm somewhat new to Premiere and I want to make sure I am doing things in the most efficient manner. I have hours and hours of 4k AVHC media on an external array, but it is not fast enough for editing

Mike Sullivan "I have hours and hours of 4k AVHC media on an external array, but it is not fast enough for editing." That needs a lot of CPU power to decode. Media speed is probably not the bottlenec

An animator sent me some 3D architectural animations of a new facility. The camera moves through some rooms and around hallways revealing some TV monitors along the way. He currently has green in each

by Mike Sullivan 9 years ago
I am not very Illustrator savvy. How can I take a few different paths from Illustrator and convert them into one mask in AE
Re: Combining several paths from Illustrator to one AE mask
by keith mcgregor 9 years ago
Sorry, it really doesn't work that way, when you select all and copy, then tab over to AE and paste, it brings all the paths and makes them separate because it sees all the paths, some are intersectin
Render time increased without reason
by Mike Sullivan 9 years ago
I have a fairly complex composition with large layered files. It was taking about 10-12 hours to Render which I expected. However, after making some minimal changes now the Render times has jumped to
Re: Render time increased without reason
by Mike Sullivan 9 years ago
I can't remember specifically, but one thing was a tint effect to some graphics. Nothing super render intensive. When I twirl down the current render details the things that take the most time are "re

I've seen many tutorials about getting titles logos to blow away like sand, but I need to get an entire video frame to blow away organically to reveal the frame underneath. I've been experimenting wit

by Mike Sullivan 11 years ago
Hi Les, I'm glad you liked the article. For the theater in Wyoming we used a Dave Jones Synchronizer to get the DVD's to play at the same time. We don't really do much DVD's anymore, however. Nowadays

Thank you Walter, At the moment i'm looking into Roxio DVDit pro HD. It looks like a good option but it also has some limitations, will see. If i try Do Studio i will let you know how it works. thanks
wait to hit play
by Mike Sullivan 11 years ago
Forgive me if this is a silly question... In Encore CS3 how do I make it so the disc doesn't play at all until the user hits 'play' on the machine or remote

Re: HDV 24p to DVD
by Bouke Vahl 12 years ago
Yep. Make a downconvert any way you like, but make sure you change the timebase to 23.976. Ae can do this, export the clip as a QT (ref), set 'interpret footage' to 24, create a 23.976 SD wide comp an

by Alan Lorence 13 years ago
Sorry I didn't reply sooner. Does this happen with every project, or only specific ones Try different stage sizes too. It may be motion blur settings, or video driver issues. Also make sure that you l
Warp Lines Out
by Mike Sullivan 13 years ago
How can I simply change the direction of the warp line son this emitter Instead of flying out at me I want them to go from left to right. Is it possible
Re: Warp Lines Out
by Alan Lorence 13 years ago
There are several steps -- hope I get them all: - r-click on the emitter on the stage and "make line" - select "emission angle" in the hierarchy and set to 90 - select "emission range" and set to 0 -
missing alpha

BOOM 5

I'm having a heck of a time trying to get my head around the Boom 5 emitter. It's perfect for what I need except it's too much "boom". I just need to tone it down a bit, but it's seems so complex, I d
Re: BOOM 5
by Elvis Deane 13 years ago
This one's tough to edit because there are keyframes all over the place to get the effect. In the Number graph (which is set to 200% or so), start it with a value of 0. At frame 18 set another 0 keyfr
