It depends on the exact studio's process, but generally either an animatic (basically a roughly animated storyboard) or the audio is done first. In the case of Family Guy and American Dad specifically, it sounds like they work on the audio and the animatic first. The advantage to doing an animatic first is it can help the voice actors visualize what will ...

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 ...

First up you'll have to upgrade to a different Video Editing program that has more support for the custom effects that you'll need to create an intro. For professional-looking video intros, I recommend using Adobe After Effects. Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas Pro and Pinnacle Studio are also viable options. Since you're new to video editing, I recommend looking ...

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 ...

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 ...

The problem with compression is that it is a double edged sword. It can reduce the space required to store video, however it also takes processing time to perform the compression. When you are running a game, however, the CPU and GPU are already busy keeping the game running smoothly. In order to shrink the file size, you must either reduce the quality or ...

I use my Nikon DSLR to record videos, so I'll share some pointers with you. DSLR are capable of producing very good video images. This is thanks to their sensor size and optics, compared to many handycams. However, since their primary use is not video, there are some things to keep in mind: I don't recommend using autofocus. It is slow (Nikon in Live ...

bmargulies, There are few questions here: Are you looking for a multicam setup? If so the two cameras are unlikely going to match unless you are willing to put in time to post production work. (fix it in post! http://d3j5vwomefv46c.cloudfront.net/photos/large/639498971.jpg?1345259967) What is the purpose of this video If its a 'creative' project (as in ...

I would skip the wearing of rediculous hardwear on my head and just remove, or greatly lessen, the bounce using good image tracking software in post-production. Avid Media Composer handles this well. Adobe After Effects does it too. There a number of cheaper programs (including one offered by GoPro, I think) that may, or may not, do this well. Here's one: ...

The best rendering options greatly depend on what you're using the video footage for. Here's a few great options sorted by purpose: YouTube - Videos uploaded to Youtube in 1080p Sony AVC with the template 'Internet 1920x1080-30p' MainConcept MPEG-2 with the template 'HDV 1080-24p' NTSC Video MainConcept MPEG-2 with the template 'DVD NTSC' (for burning ...
