Cool Edit Pro is now Adobe Audition. They have started a beta, so you're in luck. http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/audition/

No, the display port on your macbook pro is output only. You may be able to use your camcorder as a webcam if it is capable of streaming video over USB or Firewire, though.

This is a well-known bug when exporting to H.264. Unfortunately, I'm not clever enough to understand why this happens, but it's a side effect of using the codec. I'll keep looking for an explanation I understand, however I wanted to get this answer out there. As a workaround for now, I suggest making a quick little eyeball adjustment to the comp's colour ...

...FFMPEG worked, it was a steep learning curve in terms of getting it to work in my environment and, took me a few days to learn how to code in Bash Scripts Shell based, but in the end very happy with the results and it's integration with both Macs and my Unix server.

I think the simplest way to this is to use MP4Box. ./MP4Box -add file1.mp4 -cat file2.mp4 -cat file3.mp4 output.mp4

Be aware that you are not changing anything. If I call you Bob, you are still Jac and even then you are probably posting under a different name. If you have software that naively trusts the filename instead of examining the actual binary headers of the file, this can work for you. If the actual format or encoding is wrong then no name change will fix that. ...

Yes, this simple conversion should work fine. Both files are technically mp4 files anyways. Only notable thing is that certain older Apple products, like older versions of appleTV for example, require it to be in m4v format so don't forget to switch it back if your switching between a Mac and a PC if you are using older mac products. By default, m4v files ...

I can recommend Adapter. It is a Wrapper for the ffmpeg package and does its job pretty well. Because of its easy UI. You could also use ffmpeg directly via macports, but I think that Adapter is far easier to control.

For online delivery and viewing on laptops/tablets, 720P should be sufficient for capturing the entire sheet in a legible way, but resolution isn't the only factor to consider... A 1080P camera would capture higher-resolution images, but a 1-hr lecture at that size would probably result in a file size around 1GB. Assuming the intended delivery is online, ...

All anyone might be able to say is that there are no known holes in the various players. (I don't know if that's true, just that it's impossible to know that there are no undiscovered bugs in a complex piece of code.) H.264 streams are complex enough to have lots of corner cases. They're parsed with speed-optimized code written in C and assembly. You're ...

Depending on the functionality needed, Audacity (it's free) may do the trick. Otherwise, you might try Cubase (it's expensive depending on version). Both can use your existing sound interface. If you want an easier (in my opinion) user interface, check into ProTools, but you will need to buy compatible hardware.

1st, make sure you don't have any equipment or 3rd party programs that interfere with the audio on your computer because, more often than not, it is a problem with that instead of the audio on the computer itself. I actually asked a similar question (which is specific to your question) about a third party program messing with Ableton (same as with ...

I was encountering audio sync issues when trying to do this with Avidemux, but I came upon a two-step process that keeps the audio in sync: Concatenate files using MKVToolNix (I used version 7.4.0 for Mac). This results in a Matroska video (.mkv) file. Remux the .mkv file to MP4 format using Avidemux (I used verison 2.6 for Mac). I chose the MP4v2muxer ...

You could create a droplet in compressor. Unfortunately, your options for destination folder are limited by this method to either source, desktop, cluster storage, or your movie folder. Since you don't want your watch folder endlessly copying movies, "source" is a bad choice, and you probably don't have cluster storage, so as long as you're ok with your ...

I also bumped into this issue and couldn't find a way to create a true copy of a text layer that contains effects, etc. However, there is a way around this, it still adds 1 step to the process, but it's better than most solutions I found. So, duplicate your title, rename then go to the original title, choose it on the timeline, copy it. Then go back to the ...

Duplicate both your Title and your sequence, call one sequence V1...and the other V2, then take your title and call it Title V1 and title V2...then replace the title in sequence 2 with V2, then from that point on any changes made within the V1 side will not affect V2 and vise versa.

If you have a Mac, download "Cam Twist." It offers reasonable live keying, and it can even put you as picture in picture. If you use the right browser, I.e. Firefox with the Google Hangouts plugin necessary for hangouts, "Camtwist" will just be an option in the list of cameras. Download it here.

FFMpeg has an option to modify the aspect ratio of a video file without actually modifying the video, see http://www.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-all.html#Video-Options For example, in your case, the desired aspect ratio is 720 / 480 = 1.5 (3:2) (which is NOT 4:3, it should be 540 in that case) So your command line may look like: ffmpeg -i input_file.avi -c copy ...

The good news is I didn't just overlook something. Transcoding .WMV to .MOV is a real problem. The bad news is that it cost me $29 to solve it. I purchased the "Player Pro" license for Flip4Mac by Telestream after reading this support article by Apple.

8 cores is nice but unnecessary. Adobe products rarely utilize all the cores unless you have multiprocessing enabling, which if you don't know: multiple frames are being rendered at the same time using different cores for each frame. But even at that I doubt you could get all 8 cores on board to do that because you need more ram dedicated to each cores ...

It looks like it is probably something graphic driver related. The Mac Book Pro Retina screen shots look almost identical to what I see on my color calibrated environment when I look at the video you have posted on your site. Looks like the playback screen is probably recognized as a video playback by whatever color corrections are going on on the Dell ...

Ok finally worked it out haha Do not be a dummy like me and insert the memory stick upside down! You will know when it is correctly inserted because a red light will come on indicating ready to record.

HighPoint RocketStor RS5212 is a Thunderbolt Dock that will accept two hard drives or SSDs. I would not use FireWire for SSDs, unless you don't have USB 3.0 and you're on a budget. USB 3.0 is often fast enough to get the maximum out of your SSD, FireWire not.

AVIdemux can do that when encoding, but i cannot remember if it allows you to do that when you chose to copy the stream without reencoding (you don't want to reencode, since it will not only be time consuming, but also lossy). If you are willing to change it from AVI to MKV (VLC and most other players will have no problem playing it) you can do that with ...

I usually manually drop my files into the iMovie Drop Box for safe keeping until I want to use/edit them and do all my managing of videos (personal ones, at least) in iMovie.

I've seen a few reviews of the Retina display machines that suggest that the graphics chip has trouble pushing the display at full resolution. At this point, I think the Retina machines are better suited to the processing of static images for iPad development than for high-res video editing.

Yes. M4V is a slight extension to the MP4 container format. M4V is Apple's version, which adds optional DRM-encryption. So if the video is DRM-protected (i.e. came from the iTunes store) it should stay as m4v (and will open by default in iTunes). If it's not, it can be used with either extension, and many players will be happy either way. By default, .m4v ...

i think MPEG Streamclip can do this. It's free on mac and pc.

I would suggest using ffmpeg, and the -vcopy switch. Usually this will work, but it depends on codec support. Various builds of it have various codecs. If one version of it doesn't work, try downloading a copy from a different site.

Avidemux should do the work. Load File Go to File -> Append and select File To the left of the video window, set video mode to Copy; same for audio mode; set format to MP4. Go to File -> Save -> Video.
