Movies have certain "looks" to arouse certain moods. The lightning and color depends on the intention of the movie and each individual scene. Let's take the picture you linked as an example: The footballer is lit by the floodlights in the stadium. He is lit from every side so that you can see as much as possible, there is little shadow and contrast. The ...

There are quite a few programs that do so-called "full reference" measurement, i.e. comparing an original against a degraded signal: http://www.acceptv.com/en/products_vqa.php http://compression.ru/video/quality_measure/index_en.html (commercial) http://www.its.bldrdoc.gov/resources/video-quality-research/guides-and-tutorials/description-of-vqm-tools.aspx ...

With consumer targeted software, there is less of a standard of how to do things. For professional software, there are pretty standardized workflows that editors follow and so tools are pretty similar. For beginner software, while the basic concepts are still similar, the way in which they simplify them is not. The end results that are possible are still ...

Most prosumer-level (or higher) video editing software has monitor panels which show you information about color distribution, luminace, levels and the likes. Premiere Pro for example offers a range of reference monitors. Contrary to photo editing, you can't get one measurement of those parameters for the entire video, because they of course vary from ...

There are several websites that do that. For example, this one accumulates free stock photos and there's also a video section. However, your best bet is to use a designated search engine like the creative commons search site, which will allow you to find material distributed under creative commons licenses. Before you use any of the found material, make sure ...

Like slhck says, you can compare 2 digital video files with metrics like SSIM. Your question also asked about brightness and contrast, and other things which will depend on the physical monitor that the video is displayed on. If you want to be sure that the right photons come out of the screen, given the pixels it was sent, then you need to calibrate your ...

Not sure, which version you're using and I didn't use PowerPoint recently, but as far as I can remember, there is a video export function built in. Might be worth a try. Also there's a list with free video software on Wikipedia, which you can take a look at. Many of them should work for your purpose.

You can link multiple clips as you would link two clips. First, put all the audio and video tracks you want in your timeline and arrange them using the timecodes, manual adjustments or however you prefer to align the individual recordings (I'm assuming you have a method for that, since you removed that part of the question in the last edit). Then select all ...

From my experience all unexpected movements when keyframing are fixed by editing bezier curves of those keyframes, make them linear or something.

If you're singing on the new track(s) you've added, definitely! I've done it myself. You can even pan the new track(s) left or right to give your song more "space". If you were thinking you'd take duplicate your audio track in Garageband, and change the pitch of the new track, it's harder. Your harmonies probably won't stay the same number of half steps ...

Have you tried clearing all rendered caches? That would be my first guess.

There are ways to transfer projects between different video editing programs, but they are very limited. Take a look at my answer here; this question is about transfering projects between different versions of Premiere Pro, but the answer is basically the same. You can export a project as an Edit Decision List (EDL), however this will only contain the ...

Based on neuhaus' comment, I've confirmed that the Foscam uses MJPEG compression. Thus it's clear how a brighter (hence more detailed) scene would generate higher bit rates by repeatedly sending complete full frames. I thought that it would be smarter than that.

You're right, at some point it visually looks better to downscale and have a lower rez but less artifacty video. The bitrate where this happens depends strongly on how compressible your content is. One way to judge this for x264 might be to look at the rate-factor. For 2-pass, the x264 output includes the rate-factor. For CRF mode, the CRF value you set ...

Just use an affine transform for the title Create a title with the text Put the video on track 2 Put the title on track 1 Combine them with an affine transformation On the affine transformation, add 4 key frames for a title of 5 seconds, at 0 / 1 / 4 / 5 seconds Set the opacity for keyframe at second 0 and second 5 to 0. Keyframes at second 1 and 4 keep ...
