It is often called a lower third because it is a bar often appearing in the lower third of the image. Also sometimes a name plate or title plate.

I'm pretty sure it hasn't changed since CS3 (in fact It's been the same for as long as I can remember): in Edit > Templates > Render Settings >. Another way of getting to this dialogue is from the Render Settings drop-down in the render queue. At the bottom of the list of templates in the drop-down is Make Template… Choosing that brings up the ...

I can't give an After-Effects specific answer, but maybe this will help.. 1 - If you want to color a specific part of the image, deal with "region based filtering." In DaVinci-speak, that's Power Windows. Masks, Shapes, Roto. However you phrase it. That's how you tell the computer what part of the image you want to effect. Tie the mask to a tracker so ...

If you are trying to do editing, you are using the wrong program. Adobe After Effects is an effects and compositing program. It is designed to make alterations to clips of video that can then be used together. It is not designed for editing clips together. If you wish to do video editing, you want a piece of software known as a Non Linear Editor (or ...

If you want to Preview Audio you need to use RAM Preview... Press 0 on the number pad [shortcut key for Ram Preview], then you can hear the audio. Press [0] on the Numberpad.

Let me start by saying what they did there is actually far, Far, FAR simpler than you think. I'll try to break it down shot by shot what is going on. On the title, there are three main elements. The first element fades in on a time lapse of clouds moving across the mountain. This appears to be the same time lapse they use a few seconds later for the ...

Simply copy the two animated masks to the 4th footage file and set them to "Intersect" instead of "Add". Then they will only reveal the footage that they are applied to when they intersect with another mask. Then put this footage files layer ontop of the others. Here a screenshot as a reference.

They call this the rolling shutter effect. Also known as the jello or wobble effect and is caused by the side to side motion of cameras that have the CMOS sensor. The rolling shutter effect can be caused by: fast moving objects, moving or panning the camera quickly, or camera vibrations. Why does this happen? The CMOS sensor on the camera reads ...

Its been a long time since I've been in AE, but you could do this a few ways. You could physically layer a clip of the effect(with transparency) over the section you want to 'flash', or select the frame and tweak the saturation until it looks right. Jim has a good point about splitting it into 3 frames. It will look much less harsh, but it will make timing ...

I'm not an AE user, but if it has the concept of an effect layer, you can add a track above your clip that has one frame of 'brighten' or blowout. Alternatively, split your clip into three -- pre-glow, the hot frame, post-glow.

After Effects is not designed as an editing platform. Audio preview only works when you do a RAM Preview and pre-render all the frames for the content you are previewing. You never get Audio with the real-time preview. The intent behind RAM Preview is that it lets you check the final quality of the render prior to writing it to disk, but it isn't really ...

As currently stated, the answer is, you can't. The only thing special about that video is that it is very well planned out and coordinated with lots of lighting making it almost certainly outside your budget to reproduce something similar. The video work itself is all actually fairly basic. Any camera with a decent dynamic range and sharpness could ...

Assuming the lighting is solid, you should be in good shape. I haven't used the keying features of iMovie, but I can give you a few tips for After Effects. I'll defer to any power users of AE's keying functionality to chime in with more specific advice. First, you'll probably want to start with the Keylight plugin (from The Foundry). It should come bundled ...

I would probably start from the smallest orbit and work my way out. If you adjust the anchor point for each object that is rotating, a simple rotation keyframe should make it rotate around the center. Once you have the smallest thing rotating, you include that composition in another composition and adjust the anchor point similarly to make it rotate around ...

You should try VirtualDUB with the MSU deflicker plug-in. It's totally free and work better than other software I've tried. You don't have to tweak any settings, it's working directly. It's available for Windows.

I'm currently following this tutorial and at 12:44 i think i got the same problem as you did in this situation. When I turned on "Accept lights" my text turned white to my ...

After tearing my hair out I found the "hand cursor", now I can drag the panel around however I want it :)

Try using CC Sphere on a large texture instead. It will wrap the texture into a sphere, which you can then move around in two dimensions. If you need to pass the spheres behind or in front of each other, you could place the layers in 3D space, even though the spheres will still really be flat layers. The other option would be to use some particle ...

CC Ball is a video effect to make an array of balls that video can be displayed on. It isn't designed for making circles that you can move around like this. What you want is a 3D shape object. Unfortunately, unless you have a 3rd party tool like Blender to make a geometry you can import, there isn't an easy way to make a true sphere in AE. The only ...

The standard way to deal with this is to use color calibration. Unfortunately, color accuracy on consumer devices tends to be all over the charts. There is no way to guarantee that the color will be similar, even on multiple of the same model of device, or even on the same exact device over time. Thus, the best practice is to setup a color calibrated ...

Darby Edelen posted an answer on Creative Cow.[enter link description here][1] You won't be able to define any spatial paths any other way, but this should work: d = 5; fd = d * 2; p1 = [200, 500]; p2 = [500, 200]; t = (time - inPoint) % fd; if(t <= d) linear(t, 0, d, p1, p2); else linear(t, d, fd, p2, p1); This starts from p1 at the ...

An SSD is a replacement for a hard drive, not a replacement for RAM. RAM previews are rendered into your computer's system RAM, not to internal storage (and then you can save the RAM preview to disk if you wish). Having said that, I recently replaced a 7200rpm internal hard drive in my macbook pro, and added some more RAM. It makes a huge difference to ...

Rendering in 1080p takes up more resources than 720p, so it is normal that your render is slower than usual, even though your new hardware is superior. 1280x720 = 921600 pixels per frame, 1920x1080 = 2073600 pixels per frame. The software has to render 2.25x the amount of pixels per frame, so you can expect it to take about twice as long. the 770 GTX has ...

You probably want to work with Motion Paths here. Though for those to work you need beziere based shapes and not parametric shapes like you have right now. The differences is that parametric shapes (coming from the shape tool (rectangle, ellipse etc.)) are defined by numeric parameters (the part with the first position value in your image). Bezier shapes ...

This is really just a typical title. You can prepare it either in Photoshop, Illustrator or After Effects directly. It can also be created in Premiere with a little work. At their most basic, an MTV style song information could just be text that you put in a layer that you fade in and fade out of the video. Alternately, if you want a more complex one, ...

All of the animations you want to do there are achievable with masks and the Stroke effect. I suggest you start to generally learn to use After Effects, these are very simple things you want to do there and you shouldn't need any tutorial once you understand the very basics of After Effects.

After Effects, especially with Mocha, has the most advanced motion tracking and stabilization capabilities of these 3 options, but they are also the most complicated to use if you want the best possible results. (Note that AE also does offer simple options like Warp Stabilizer if you don't need super advanced stabilization.) The options in Final Cut Pro X ...

You can work around it using multiple compositions. Do one composition to generate the 3d layer and then use that composition within another to handle the blending (or vice versa depending on your needs).
