Make sure scale values are locked and set both to 100%:

Just to add to the previous responses: While there's nothing quite like Git for the video world, there are Digital Asset Management/Media Asset Management tools that can more or less do the same thing - version control and permission/user management (they also do a lot more, as they're really built as libraries for your media). For years, I used Apple's ...

Version control in the sense of Git isn't very practical in the video world. You would need to make a specific version control tool for every audio and video tool out there as all work with their own project formats. But being able to read these formats is just one thing, then you also need the render engine of that tool to show diff's. Though all of these ...

A simple way in blender or any other 3d package would be to use a boolean modifier, if you want to subtract real geometry: use a array modifier to duplicate your shape create a path and aligning the objects on it animate the object count of the array modifier create a simple geometry for subtracting the path objects at the beginning add a boolean ...

here's a solution that I've used. It can be used to reveal a shape path, or as a way to add a smooth fade-out on the stroke effect as-is: Create your dotted path using the pen tool (or whatever you like), then use the path to create a mask on a new adjustment layer. I use an expression so that I can dynamically change the path - just alt-click the ...

If you created the shape with the rounded rectangle tool, then you won't initially have the same control over the transform as you would if you'd made the shape with the pen tool. But there's a simple fix. Just right-click on "Rectangle Path X" and convert to bezier path. Now you'll be able to use the selection tool to draw a marquis around the individual ...

It's because of Spatial Interpolation. You need the spatial interpolation to be set to linear, and by default it is set to Auto Bezier. Right click on the keyframe at 3'00, and select Keyframe Interpolation. Change the Spatial Interpolation to linear, and it should solve the problem. What's happening: Instead of drawing straight lines (linear lines) ...

Version control doesn't really have as much of a place in video editing because it is by nature non-destructive. At the core of any NLE(non-linear video editor), the output is actually something known as an Editing Decision List or EDL. This is extremely analogous to the history in Lightroom as that history is a record of all changes that have been applied ...

That's called: Banding. About Color Banding from Wikipedia: Colour banding is a problem of inaccurate colour presentation in computer graphics. In 24 bit colour modes, 8 bits per channel is usually considered sufficient to render images in Rec. 709 or sRGB. However, in some cases there is a risk of producing abrupt changes between shades of the same ...

To reduce or eliminate the greenish reflection on the front of the table, you can buy some dark gray or black construction paper, or something equally non-reflective, cut it to size, and tape it over the 2 dark rectangles on the front of the table. I have 3 different solutions for the foot-shadows on the floor. You could point a semi-dim spotlight ...

The most-recommended way to do this is with Twixtor, a pricey plugin for AE and other platforms. They offer a watermarked free trial. There are some free alternatives out there but I haven't used them so I can't say for sure they'll suit your need. One is SloMoVideo and if you google that you'll see videos from people who've tried it.

Here's the math(s): 90 images to make a 10 second video at a frame rate of 25 frames per second (fps) (in the UK) = 25 fps * 10 seconds = 250 frames 250 frames / 90 images = 2.778 frames per image So each frame would need to be onscreen for just under three frames, which wouldn't look particularly smooth - for smooth motion you'd ideally have 25 images ...

Yes, do it as one effect and use the graph editor to use a non-linear curve. You can alter the curve to respond however you'd like then. Simply click on the graph looking icon next to your parameter that you are keying on so that it will appear in the graph editor. Then open the graph editor (icon closest to the timeline on the top (looks like a graph). ...

Method 1 The Last column on the right — in your pic it says растягиваться but in the English version of AE it's called Stretch — that's the one you need to modify Click on the number that says 100%. Alternatively, select the layer and from the Layer menu choose Time>Time Stretch… (I'm not sure what it is in Russian). Then you'll get a dialog that lets you ...

Your resolution is on a third But most importantly, your video is 720 x 480 resolution but on a 1920 x 1080 timeline (so it seems), so you are scaling it to fit (you can't make up for a lack of resolution but upscaling your footage). To get the right comp size, you can: Drag your video file onto the little film icon to the immediate left of the 8 bpc ...

I'll assume the camera op was fooling with the exposure? You'll need to key-frame color correction or AE's Auto Color function may work for you: https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/color-correction-effects.html If you go the CC route it may help to watch the YC waveform rather than the image itself. The Color Stabilizer effect may also work for ...

The selected answer already addresses your question with this specific effect, but if you run into other similar situations where you want to see your results while editing, you can either add another Comp Viewer window, or lock the one you're using. At the top-left of the comp preview, there's a small dropdown where you can choose which comp to display, ...

Don't apply the brush tool to the solid - apply it to your photo instead. There is an option in the tool to choose whether to apply the brush over the image, or to reveal the image. When you're drawing your brush strokes, set it to apply over the image. When you're ready to animate the strokes, set it to reveal the image.

If you enable it in the preferences After Effects and Premiere automatically make incremental saves of the project files. These incremental saves could be used to revert to previous versions, which is like a very basic implementation of version control (you might want to increase the number of versions from 5 though). FCP has a "restore from previous ...

The Timecode effect (effects>text>timecode) will add a timecode, but it's measured in HH:MM:SS:FF rather than milliseconds. You could do it with an expression by adding a text layer, and applying an expression to the Source Text property. Below is an expression that returns what you want. To apply it, alt-click on the stop watch for the text layers Source ...

Here's one idea for the effect, which you can even do in Premiere: Get a live-action camera shot where the camera is slowly trucking forward. In post-production, create a title that has at least one letter with a hole in it (A, B, D, O, P, Q, etc.). Lay the title over the top of the trucking-in shot. Animate the scale and position of the title over several ...

Motion graphics is a form of 2d or 3d animation based around moving graphics. It can include such things as moving titles, animated presentations and graphs, animated background (motion backs), whiteboard animations, animated product demonstrations and more. It can range in complexity from relatively simple (such as basic moving titles) to extremely ...

If what you want to have as an end result is a flag texture inside a non-standard shape, can I suggest instead that you import the flag texture, and use a matte to change its shape? If you've already created a shape that you want to use, you could convert it into your matte by adding a key frame to the matte's path control, adding a keyframe to the shape, ...

Check whether you have Collapse Transformations enabled in your comp1. It's a litte sun icon:

The position property is an array, which is a container with a number of components in it, in this case the three position values: x, y and z. To specify an array you use this notation foo = [A,B,C] where A, B and C are the individual values – constants, variables, whatevs. TL;DR to create an array you put a number of comma-separated values in square ...

I suggest you to build a real lighting rig and maybe stabilizing her neck. If you decide to do it afterwards you have to: modeling the head and her hair (scan it if this is possible) tracking the shots with blender or pftrack replacing the head in your favourite package There are some obstacles: to get realistic shadows and highlights you probably ...

Animate the x value of the Size property of the rounded rectangle path, rather than the Scale to leave your strokes the same width. This will let you change the size of the rectangle without affecting the stroke size, or indeed the size of the corner radius. However the down side is that you can't just drag the corners in the comp window, this will affect ...

Another thing to try before shelling out for Twixtor is the default frame interpolation built-in to AE. You'll see the frame-blending checkbox in the timeline window, click it once and you get the the frame mix mode, where one frame is dissolved into the next to create the interpolated frames. this is fast-n-easy, but it probably won't produce great ...

Is that composition a 16:9 composition with non-square pixels? looks like it. Check your composition settings, particularly the pixel aspect ratio setting. If your pixel aspect ratio is not Sqare Pixels then the comp is set up to display correctly only when it is stretched. This is the way DV video and DVDs do 16:9 while still having the same pixel ...

The simplest way would be: Create your flag in Illustrator Think about or simply test how many frames/steps are key for animation Draw your frames/steps on seperate Illustrator layers in to get the same position for all of it Paste your frame/path with CTRL+V on 1 solid layer every 4-20 frames by switching between After Effects and Illustrator back and ...
