Check out Derivative's TouchDesigner. Its a real-time compositing and rendering software that we use in our studios. It's used worldwide for really complex projects, so you could easily make a little patch in that where you could make 2 UI buttons and link those to some incrementing numbers, then composite the numbers onto the video and record it. Then you ...

Have you ever heard the expression: 'Good, fast and cheap. Pick any two.'? A good and fast way would be to hire a professional post-production studio capable of layering over the video a scorebdoard graphic, and layering over the graphic a character-generator input. You sit in the chair behind the editor and tell him what scores to input and when. The new ...

While there are video encoders that do this kind of thing, most commonly this is the work of a video switcher or mixer. A video switcher is a device used for mixing live video from multiple sources. The bad news is they generally aren't cheap. An HD capable switcher is typically in the $6000+ range with the absolute cheapest one I know of being the Black ...

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 ...

As currently stated, the answer is, you can't. The only thing special about that video is that it is very well planned out and coordinated with lots of lighting making it almost certainly outside your budget to reproduce something similar. The video work itself is all actually fairly basic. Any camera with a decent dynamic range and sharpness could ...

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 ...

Your workflow is a little off from how it is designed by Adobe. Step 1: Adobe Story: You build your script and can break it into shots that you need to capture before you even start shooting. This can then work as the blueprint to plan out shooting of the project. Step 2: Adobe Prelude: I believe you can preconfigure a shot list that needs to be captured ...

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 ...
