While chroma-keying is a good technique for dealing with solids, it doesn't work so well when dealing with transparent or semi-transparent objects. Because the difference can be very subtle, you want to copy the difference instead or blend off luminance. In Premiere, you can use the Set Matte effect to set a track as a luminance matte. In the case of the ...

First off, you would normally use After Effects for special effects such as Chroma Keying. That being said, Premiere Pro is capable of chroma keying quite decently. Here's an example using free smoke effects by JohnnyFXEffects. Set up your scene as you usually would, and then go to the 'Effects' tab. (1) From the 'Keying' folder, select the 'Chroma Key' ...

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 ...

The most common cause of this kind of asymmetric drift is dropped frames. With older equipment, there were sometimes inconsistencies in the internal clocks that would result in issues that time didn't flow at a consistent rate between samples, but most decent modern hardware, while it may have slightly different rates, is inherently stable at that rate. ...

Using FFMPEG the command would look something like this: ffmpeg -i <sourceVideoFile> -i <sourceAudioFile1> -i <sourceAudioFile2> -map 0:0 -map 0:1 -map 1:0 -map 2:0 -c:v copy -c:a copy <outputVideoFile> Basically you're taking the source video file and multiple audio inputs, then mapping multiple audio files to the output's audio ...

To build on AJ's answer in a different direction, you may want to look at After Effects, which is a popular compositing tool. In After Effects, you can use the pen tool (somewhat like the lasso tool) to create a custom shape. With that shape, you can create a mask for the video. This mask can then show only the video inside of the shape. Further, the mask ...

If the element you need to put on the video doesn't move and the shot you are putting it in doesn't move, the best bet is to actually use Photoshop to extract the object you want to place in another video and put it in a file format that supports a transparent background (TGA, PSD, etc.) You can then import it to Premiere and place the image wherever you ...

There is no easy way I'm aware of. It's really important when shooting a timelapse to use fixed manual exposure so that you get consistent exposure from shot to shot. It's a non-trivial task to get color to match from one image to the next if exposure doesn't match because you have to worry about not only the black point (darkest point) and white point ...

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 ...

You may be able to simply use an adjustment layer in Adobe Premiere Pro and use the Three Way Color corrector to deal with this. It is similar to editing a still in Adobe Photoshop. You will want to adjust the levels initially then the tonal range and possibly the curves. If that doesn't work, then the next step would be to try to incorporate masking. If ...

Mark In, Mark Out, Extract. Do not use the Razor tool. I've made the same newbie mistake as you. :)

I would probably approach it by first measuring the size of the area that you want to crop to. This can be done by exporting a frame of the image and cropping in another program (like Photoshop). I would then create a sequence based on the other settings of the video, but alter the resolution of the sequence to be that of the portion of the video you ...

Oliver, have you tried changed your sequence settings to the new dimensions? You can also restrict/define dimensions in the export settings under 'Basic Video Settings'. Hope this helps!

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 ...

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 ...

In and out markers are used for clip selection, however you have to put the clip somewhere once you select it. You can either drag or insert it to a sequence or you can drag it to your Project window to have a copy of it saved with that in and out point. You could later drag from that copy of it in the project to the timeline and it will use the in and out ...
