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.

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 ...

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 ...

Davinci Resolve lite is free, and it contains an excellent motion tracker. By combining the motion tracker with a power window, and adding a color correction (to darken everything outside of the power window), you should be able to achieve the results you're after very quickly. For tutorials on Davinci Resolve, search youtube for Alexis Van Hurkman. He ...

Find some people IRL who share your interest and enthusiasm for filmmaking. They don't have to be professionals, and you don't have to pay for a fancy film school, but opening a discussion with real people about technique is the best way to start learning. Watch movies with these people, press the pause button when something grabs your attention, and talk ...

Remember its all about the story. How to tell the story. And the tools you use to tell it. Editing, lighting, special effects and sound (are the tools used to tell your story.) Remember: story, story, story. Starting out: A good entry level camera to start filming with by Tom Antos. ...

Don't use the Ken burns effect. Animate the transform controls, setting keyframes for scale and x/y position. By default, the keyframes will ease in and ease out, giving you a Ken Burns like effect, but you'll be able to control it more precisely.

What you like to accomplish is a zoom? In that case you can just add keyframes on the position of the video within your canvas/composition. Find the moment where you want to zoom. Add keyframe on the scale / position Add keyframe on end of the zoom Set preferred value Add keyframe one frame before zooming out Add keyframe on that next frame. Add keyframe ...

For this purpose I like to use SolveigMM Video Splitter. It's very fast and lossless video tool (no recompression) and it fully supports H.264 video (GoPro records in mp4 files using h.264 compression).

While it is true that 720p video only has about half the data of a 1080p feed, the other thing you have to realize is that when you push the system beyond it's limit, it may spend a lot of time trying to process frames that it doesn't finish in time. Depending on how the player is configured, it may give up and try to catch up rather than finish rendering ...

In the current version of Lightworks (11.5.1) you can change the Output framerate (and other formats) from the Project menu in the top right corner: Click on the menu arrow by "Project Name" Select "Video" Click on the menu arrow for "Output format" and choose a different target FPS.

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 ...

Try this: open the file in the Quicktime player -- it'll have to be Quicktime Pro. Select the frames that you want to remove with the input and output markers. Hit 'Delete.' Then save as a 'self-contained' movie.

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 ...

If you're on Linux, consider Cinelerra: the most powerful video editor for Linux, Openshot: simple, powerful, and free video editor for Linux, or Kdenlive (also available for FreeBSD and Mac OSX): Free and open source video editor for GUN/Linux and FreeBSD Openshot and Kdenlive can be installed via apt-get install, however Cinelerra requires a little more ...

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 ...

There are a few problems here that need to be addressed. First, the pitch shot is vertically oriented or "portrait" (vs landscape). This is considered very, very bad practice. This is a huge and constant amateur mistake because many amateurs now shoot video with their tablets and smartphones and hold the device the way they normally do, vertically, but ...

I don't think it's possible in Vegas to move the "timeline" line (cursor) along with your edit. You can, however, set the cursor directly to where you want your event to end by just clicking to that position. Then drag your event to the cursor and let it snap magnetically to it. This way you dont have to manually set and delete any markers.

Yes, it is generally possible, but with a few limitations. h.264 uses what is known as a group of pictures. A group of pictures groups multiple frames together in a way that allows for further compression, but the entire group of pictures has to be decoded together. As such, it is only possible to cut a video stream in between groups of pictures. This is ...

This is possible with the FFmpeg command ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -ss 0 -c copy -t 60 output.mp4. This would cut the video from the beginning -ss 0 to second 60 -t 60. Be aware that -ss is and offset which -t is based upon. So -ss 10 and -t 60 would result in cutting to second 70 and removing the first 10. You can use the -to option to cut at a fixed time ...

I would go with either jing ( http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html ) free or Camtasia ( http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia.html ) both from Techsmith. Camtasia allow you to zoom in on part of the screen after recording but before rendering. This basically solves your problem and is great when you need to create video to a resolution that is less than the ...

I don't know of anything that allows you to specify something like trimming a certain amount off in batch, but you can do all of the rest with Adobe Media Encoder. Open AME and drag all of the clips that you'd like to trim into the Queue panel. Select all of the files in the queue and click on one of the preset links: Choose a format and preset ...

Possible duplicate of: What Beginner Video Editing Software Should I Use? Though still valid on its own for requesting a specific feature set. Even though pretty much any video editor will have your requested features. I often recommend Lightworks (also available for Linux and Mac) as its free and soon to be open sourced. Here a video tutorial on how to do ...
