Precomped Stroke Effect not showing up final comp
by Nathan Halder 6 years ago
I'm having some trouble seeing my comp with a stroke effect (Production Premium CS5.5) so I'm hoping someone can help out . . . I watched the Aharon Rabinowitz tutorial on masking a signature and appl
Re: Precomped Stroke Effect not showing up final comp
by Nathan Halder 6 years ago
Here's an update. If I render my final comp in AE, the Stroke on effect is rendered. If I use RAM preview or drag the pointer through the comp, it doesn't show up. The obvious problem here is not bein
Both mono audio tracks not available when editing from a sequence to a sequence CS5.5
by Nathan Halder 6 years ago
Here's what I would like to do: Create a sequence with one video track and two audio tracks (mono - 1 channel interview and the second channel nat sound mic). Put that sequence in the source window an

Henry: Thanks so much for response. However, I think this is a fix for CS6 or CC and I have CS5.5 at the moment.
Animating geometric swirling lines
by Nathan Halder 8 years ago
I'm having trouble trying to describe, and therefore search the internet and forum for creating and animating lines like this: I have the Trapcode Suite, so I was playing around with Stroke. I also tr

Thank you Vishesh and John. John, your comp was more what I was looking for. Thanks for the starting point - It looks really good. It's always cool to look at other people's work!
lens flare reflection parallel to flare
by Nathan Halder 8 years ago
Here's what is probably a dumb question, but that's how I learn . . . I'm trying to have AE's lens flare's reflection be parallel to the actual flare. This works if the flare is in the middle of the s
Re: lens flare reflection parallel to flare
by Nathan Halder 8 years ago
Thanks everybody. John, I like the stuff at Video Copilot and the price for the flare kit is much more reasonable than Knoll's. I will check that out a little closer. I realize that some the AE effect
CS5.5 speech analysis with Sony EX-1
by Nathan Halder 8 years ago
I have CS5.5 running on a Windows 7 machine. I have installed the American English module but I still can't analyze EX-1 clips with it - the option on Clip Analyze Clip and in the metadata window is g
Re: CS5.5 speech analysis with Sony EX-1
by Nathan Halder 8 years ago
Figured it out. I had converted some of my files to MXF instead of saving the entire file structure of the SxS card to my hard drive and then navigating in PP's Media Browser. That did the trick.
Premiere Pro CS5.5 imports just part of a spanned EX-1 clip
by Nathan Halder 8 years ago
I converted a spanned EX-1 file to an MXF using the XDCAM Clip Browser software. The video was shot in 1080 24P with a clip length of about 7 minutes total. The first portion of the clip, recorded on
Re: Premiere Pro CS5.5 imports just part of a spanned EX-1 clip
by Nathan Halder 8 years ago
I found a solution, inelegant as it is, by bringing the MXF into another editing program (in this case Sony Vegas 11) and rendering it as an MXF. My computer did this pretty quickly and the quality in

by Nathan Halder 9 years ago
Is there anything I should be aware of when shooting with 2 EX1s with different firmware I would make sure both the picture profiles are the same on both. Any issues with regard to color grading Thank

Good to know Marek. Thanks for your response.
asset playing audio but not showing video on menu

I created a sequence in Premiere Pro with video and audio and imported that as an asset in Encore. I then created a blank menu page and pickwhipped the audio and video to that asset. When I do a "prev
Preview vs Best Render
by Nathan Halder 9 years ago
I shot some street scenes from a car window at 1080 24P. In Vegas 10, I sped up the footage about 2.5 times. When I ram preview and render using the Sony AVC Internet template in using PREVIEW for the

I think my question was answered inadvertently by the gentleman two posts down - I turned off the resampling and now it looks great!
rewrap or convert mxf to avi, wmv, etc.
by Nathan Halder 9 years ago
I shot some conference speakers on an EX-1. Onsite, I saved the SxS cards to a desktop PC using Clip Browser and Exporting as MXF. I did this because I thought I (or someone else) would be editing wit
Re: rewrap or convert mxf to avi, wmv, etc.
by Nathan Halder 9 years ago
Thanks Ian. Painful lesson learned. Previous to this job I cut everything I shot, so this type of workflow wasn't an issue. However it's not something I ever thought about. Seems obvious now to keep t
Photoshop animation renders don't have alpha channel

I'm new to Photoshop. I created a lower third while watching Richard's excellent Creative Cow tutorial. I animated my lower third then went to Actions Video Alpha Channel Play. Then I Exported Rendere
Video tracks are all muted!
by Nathan Halder 9 years ago
There must be a rational answer to this. I can't see any of my video in my preview window. No tracks are muted and none are solo. However, all of the tracks have gray in the background suggesting they

My apologies. Should have looked around some at Vegas before throwing myself on the mercy of the Cow pros. Options Mute all video was the culprit. Not sure how I did that. The d is underlined so I tri

Vegas 10 audio import and audio selection in trimmer
by Nathan Halder 9 years ago
Forgive my ignorance as I couldn't seem to find the exact answers to these questions: 1) How do I set up Vegas 10 to only import the two tracks (instead of 4) I recorded in camera I'm using an EX-1 an
Re: Vegas 10 audio import and audio selection in trimmer
by Nathan Halder 9 years ago
That really stinks. I started getting angry at first but then I thought of a work-a-round. Perhaps you already do this, but I could make different sequences and nest them into my final project. All my
Sony AVC mp4 audio sync

I recorded an interview on an IPhone 4 but used a field audio recorder for the sound. The original file was roughly 5 minutes and 500MB. Even without effects applied, my computer plays it choppy in Ve
