You should export multiple versions to accomodate for different browsers. With HTML5, you can offer different versions of the video and the browser will automatically pick the first one that's supported. For example, take a look at the source code of the paypal website you refered to: <video autoplay="autoplay" muted="muted" poster="none"> ...

Not paying attention...I was importing the whole card folder by dragging instead of the actual clip files! Some of the clips were long and must have been too big for the filesystem on the card? When I import the actual clip files through the media browser - Presto - no duplicates and now I see skips in the numerical sequences of the clips - e.g. MTS0000, ...

There's a semi-automatic way to do this – semi automatic because it involves only typing three keystrokes over and over: xf,, xf,, xf,… — you could train your cat to do it! Here's how it goes: make sure the audio is enabled for the tracks you want to restore (you only need to do this once) park the playhead over one of the clips. hit x (for Mark ...

Storyboard first, then shoot, then edit. A storyboard is a tool for organizing your thoughts before you even pick up a camera. It's like a script, and usually follows from a script, but gives you a better idea of where to place and move the camera. This is called "shot blocking". The shotgun method of gathering footage with the hope of being able to ...

As far as I know, there is no quick way to bring the audio back into a sequence after deleting it. I learned this the hard way a while back, and now, I either drop the unneeded audio into a muted track or use subclips to store the audio/video together. If you haven't done much trimming of your clips in the sequence, and the clips happen to come from ...

Workflow is really up to whatever works for you. Unfortunately, you kind of did things backwards from the workflow I would have used. With mini-DV tapes, the fastest thing I've found is to do the clip logging with the batch capture tool and then run a batch capture to have each clip captured as an individual file. It does take a little bit of practice to ...

Do you need to choose "Millions of Colors+" when you select Animation codec, to make sure it generates an alpha channel? Also if it's an animation, you probably want progressive, not interlaced (upper/lower field first = interlaced)

I'm fairly certain you can use alpha masking in Premiere. Basically you make a black and white animated layer that provides the opacity for the footage in Premiere and the effect gets applied to combine the two layers. I will double check when I get home to make sure I'm not accidentally thinking of After Effects though. I sometimes cross the two in my ...

More recently I had moved to individual clip logging at the logging level and doing batch captures that would capture the individual clips. With direct to disk systems, it also uses distinct files, so it's been a while since I did this. That said, what I did for going through long sets of bulk captured footage back in the day was to place the clips on V2 ...
