It's referred to as a jump cut. I would guess that perhaps the Apple ads that used it might have made it popular again, but that's just a guess. The idea behind it is to visually show a change in direction of thought since typically it matches up with the start of another phrase. It jumps the viewer forward in time and makes them aware of a subtle change ...

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.

Unfortunately you are asking too much from Sony Vegas my friend! In order to get a true effect you'd have to do something called "rotoscoping" which means you go into each frame and mask out the background. You can do this in vegas by going into the pan/crop window on the video event. Look for "mask" and then you can key frame out the background with the ...

There are a few things to consider. The MP4 spec was not designed for the playback of high frame rate files, because the files are highly compressed, and limited to using a single core for decompression. Even if you had 12 cores, the file would not decompress any faster. The easiest way to solve your issue is to either encode the MP4 into another codec, or ...

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 ...

There are no filters applied there. It's pretty much basic shots, probably from a DSLR based on the feel of the video. The shots with the one guy were shot with things overexposed and then they upped the contrast to try and do recovery, but it results in large overblown highlights where there was too much light to fit in the dynamic range (the amount of ...

I haven't used LightWorks recently or extensively, and I am not sure how the whole EyeFrame converter works, but if you want to change your output frame-rate, I think this link will help. In it (the link), user HammerHead says: You choose the project-rate when you first create your project from the projects browser (the window that you see when you ...

Tough question, and I imagine that those effects may be combinations of many other effects (probably in a 3D package given the context of the video itself). Barnaby Roper has a pretty interesting skill set, and we could try forever guessing what he did without getting it exactly right. That said, you should be able to accomplish a similar effect with ...

Libav can do that as well, but it is not clear what you mean by 'process'. With avconv you can remux without reencoding, so you will still read the whole file and write it again, but will use only minimal processor power to split and then recombine the streams. The format of the command can be along the lines of: avconv -ss 3 -i in.mkv -c:a copy -c:v copy ...

I've never heard the terms On-line and Off-line editing used for audio. In the video world, off-line editing is a term used for the editing process, whereby you edit your footage (often compressed) and then export and EDl for the On-line editor to do the final assembly with higher quality picture, maybe adding titles and some transitions and color ...

I'm using a GoPro Hero 3+ too Even on my fast MacPro Westmere (mid-2012) setting your GoPro to resolutions above 1440 will slow playback and rendering. Going up to 2K and 4K might not even work at all. Also, if using the ProTune setting on your GoPro, make sure you utilise the free GoPro Studio conversion tool to get vastly improved picture quality from ...

I'm fairly certain there is no such mode. It doesn't have the same kind of feature that lightroom does as the full screen video preview is really the closest in terms of being related functionality. The full screen mode is helpful in Lightroom because it allows focusing on the photo with only basic controls. Premiere is much more complex than LR and a ...

First up you'll have to upgrade to a different Video Editing program that has more support for the custom effects that you'll need to create an intro. For professional-looking video intros, I recommend using Adobe After Effects. Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas Pro and Pinnacle Studio are also viable options. Since you're new to video editing, I recommend looking ...

In my experience (2 years), there's not a great way to accomplish this. Here's how I would do it: 1) Make an additional "background image", in the dimensions of your typical video (16x9, I assume). 2) Drag your original image over that background image, at the top, leaving room for (later) the video clip at the bottom. 3) Save that image. 4) Bring that ...

There's a good discussion of it – "it" being "datamoshing" here. Not just how it's done, but also why you probably should not do it.

If your editing software can produce motion from the still image you can just take the last frame of from the previous portion of the video and set the stationary and moving points (and if you are doing some 3D-like effect akin to rotating in the Z-axis also the depth values). Another approach is if you have a video that records the 'effect' and then you ...

In Vegas you can make a default text or preset by using the save preset feature. For instance you may add a text at the end of all your movies that looks like this: Joe Blow Productions Copyright Joe Blow 2014 After you make this text, give the text title a unique name "Joe Blow", then click the save preset button just to the right of the title ...

Vegas' text capabilities are rather limited. It allows you to insert captions only one by one. There is an extension for Vegas Pro, which is called Vegasaur. It contains Text Generation Wizard that can import text from subtitle files (srt, sub etc.) or just from the Clipboard http://vegasaur.com/Vegasaur

Adobe After Effects has the ability to fill based on previous frames which works fairly well if the camera is stationary. Basically it pulls pixels from previous frames where the person isn't there and places them over the person. It can extract the person because it is easy to tell what pixels are changing and look for a group of them from frame to frame. ...

You could export the video to still frames, then the problem is reduced to removing the person from pictures. You can use Gimp or any decent paint program with a clone tool to copy sections of a good image to the image that needs correcting. The clone tool is pretty quick to use. But yes, at 30 fps if your perpetrator is in the scene for 5s is a lot of ...

You can easily do this in Vegas Pro using the blur function and compositing two tracks. One way to do this: The lower track will be your back plate, apply the blur effect on this, the top track is your clear on blurred original track, use the cookie cutter likely an oval or a circle and and invert it so you have it allow everything around the cookie cutter ...

It's two very basic tools in After Effects. The first is simply either a perspective correction or a 3d transform depending on which way you want to do it coupled with an x/y movement across the frame. There are also a few different ways you can approach the blur such as using a layer as the basis of the amount of blur and using a mask or using a filter ...

I have no idea if this is optimal for you, but one approach using free software would be to first determine the percentage (and direction) of drift by finding a point near the end where you can tell with some precision what the sync error is, in frames. Demux the video and audio into separate streams, using a free tool like AVI-Mux. Load the audio into ...

Any fairly basic video editing package should be able to closely emulate the look. You just have to be able to distort the video to make it fit the shape that looks like it is 3d and then size and position the speaker's video appropriately. I'd personally probably do it in After Effects with a 3d layer for simplicity, but most far cheaper consumer video ...

If you can use images of the text, just about any program will handle it fine. I would expect that any professional level product such as Premiere Pro should also handle it fine. Even in software that doesn't support it, you can often fake it by entering the text and then doing the reveal backwards starting from the end of the line.

There are three reasons I can think of: The file is (as Andrew suggested) offline. The JPEG doesnt have a .jpeg extention (final cut has problems with files that are missing their extension) The JPEG resolution is too large. Try sizing the resolution down to under 2000x2000

Adobe Premiere Pro actually has a multicamera mode you can use where it will display all the videos playing together and you can switch between them. You just line up the time and then can swap. If they aren't time synced, then you can simply cut clips out and place them at will. That's why it is called non-linear editing (NLE), because you can take clips ...

I'd be careful how one uses the term 'jump cut'. Historically a jump cut meant a serious violation of continuity such as a cowboy holding a gun in his left hand and then in the next shot he is holding it in his right hand with no possible reason for the sudden change. Another example is when action might be moving from left to right and suddenly in the next ...

You can simply transform the video to be vertical within the normal frame. I'd do it using a nested sequence that way you can avoid having to alter your main full quality sequence. Simply make a new scene, drag your existing scene in to it. Click on the clip, go to Effects Control. Expand Motion control and adjust the rotation, scale and position as ...
