I'd agree with Dr Mayhem's comment that it's risky to have a file with content you don't want public sitting there on your laptop hooked up to a projector. mkvmerge, or another remuxing tool, will be able to chop up your video. I think avidemux might do well for this, since you can use the GUI to find edit points, and it supports remuxing instead of ...

I like to think of alternate ways to do things, so here are a few. One variation of the split screen is a picture-in-picture layout, where Caller B is in a small (often rectangular) box overlaid on the main shot of Caller A. Another variation of the split screen is a "cloudy" picture-in-picture, where Caller B appears as a cloud-shaped image with fuzzy ...

"Raw" ususally refers to uncompressed video (though this is technically wrong), meaning you probably have a very large file. Rendering is the process of re-encoding the video using another codec, usually to reduce file-size while maintaining a decent enough video quality. The reason that .mp4-files with the H264-codec are widely used is that they offer a ...

I used to get stuck with this problem. I finally solved it by changing the "video playback settings" from "the sequence settings" in the "sequence" menu. The default resolution is 1920 x 1080. I changed it to 640 x 360, and after that playback was always 100% smooth, even while using a mixture of .mts and .mvi full HD files, with contrast and brightness ...

The issue could be primarily technical or mainly aesthetic. Assuming that the clip is designed to be loopable, it's a technical issue. But if you edit two copies of the clip end-to-start and the transition still looks bad, it's more aesthetic. On the technical side, I've had success with Windows Media Player looping WMV and FLV clips. This depends somewhat ...

I upvoted mc01's answer. But I also want to suggest a couple of alternatives (which is something I do a lot on this forum!). If possible, you could shoot a new ending and beginning that utilize the skip/jump. It could be a gunshot or part of a quick earthquake. Or a character could mention that there might be a power outage, or a ripple in the space-time ...

You can't seamlessly loop a clip that wasn't designed to loop. Some suggestions below, but all require video editing software. No plugin for a player that I know of. Option 1: Clip has a distinctive/necessary beginning & end that have to be seen, or has audio/narration that cannot be edited or shortened The best option in this case would be to edit the ...

DASH HTML5 video streaming already works by getting the player to load video in chunks that are usually about 10 seconds long. You should be able to cook something up that gets the player to display your segment seamlessly, by giving it a DASH-like list of videos. You might need to remux your video segments into .mp4, if some web browsers choke on the flv ...

iSpy Connect may be able to help you here. I've haven't played about it with it much but I know you can load an existing video file into it and it will detect motion.

mpv has very good real-time scrubbing using the mouse on the on-screen controls. It also has seek-while-paused, and accurate-seek (decode-from-prev-keyframe) for seeking backward by 1sec. Also frame-step backward and forward. (controls: , and .). It also has an A/B loop keybind, where you can easily get it looping over a part of the video. So basically ...

Do you play your game with v-sync on? If no, your frames don't line up with when the video card actually sends an update to the monitor, so you get tearing. This can and does make things look less smooth. Maybe the videos you're watching were made by people that had vsync on at 60Hz, to avoid any tearing in any of the captured frames? Check out this ...

The least-lossy way should be to just stretch time, so your 25p becomes 24000/1001p. Then your video can go on a NTSC dvd with soft-telecining. The audio needs to be stretched to match, using a pitch-preserving method. (Soft TC means stored as progressive frames on the disc, with flags set to tell the player to apply a 3:2 pulldown if it needs to make 60i ...

Maybe try a different tool for muxing your files all into one? Like ffmpeg's concat meta-demuxer. (the concat filter (-vf concat) doesn't work with -codec copy, but -f concat for the input does.) https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Concatenate Probably your pauses in the concatenated video are from a timestamp glitch in the merged file. The mkvmerge manual ...

I would suggest looking for an interface that offers SDI inputs (as I suppose both your SP and SX players have SDI outputs) with which you will have better results than with a composite inputs as is on the Canopus product. SDI interface will allow syncing your interface with the player, and get embedded audio directly in the SDI stream. An example of such ...

I personally would use media encoder and let it do the conversion. Convert it to a mpeg2-dvd format and pick a preset, you can adjust the preset to your liking. ME would do most of the heavy lifting. At this point I trust them to do the best job. I find that nothing beats actually trying it though, you're not really out anything but time. And very little ...

The only success I've had in AE with regard to rendering a video that has a transparent background is to render it as an FLV file. The other outputs I tried (various MPEGs, MOV, AVI) always pulled a background into the export regardless of the fact I had the transparent background toggle on. (Reminder: also render as RGB+Alpha). There should be a toggle ...

One of the best ways is AnyVideo Converter Free. http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/

Use Sony Vegas. It can merge the stereo inputs and renders the output file as the format you need.

there is an other nice on-the-fly video overlay software called Clamp, which is a commercial add-on for Wowza Streaming Engine. This can read overlay instructions during a live event from a text file or from database and apply them on the live stream at specified times.

musicbed.com is probably the best quality I've heard from these types of sites. Of course, it's a little more expensive. But when you need quality, you should be prepared to pay for it. They have tons of good stuff already, but you can also actually commission them to write custom music for your project.

Well there is a source I have used a lot in the past. Very popular, a lot of others have used as well. Its free, legal and good quality. but I tend to pay a token fee for stuff I use ($5) though there is no obligation to do so. Its called incompetech.com Kevin MacLeod. He is an American musical and sound track composer. He has a large volume of tracks one ...

I've used Adrenalin Sounds before and they have a great selection of music and an easy search system. If you can't be bothered going through a heap of tracks they will create a playlist for you, which I have found helpful in the past.

When you want to change the size of the videofile you can do few things: Change the framerate of the video Change the compression rate (quality) of the video Change the size (width height) But all those actions will affect the quality of the endproduct P.S. Of course you can change also the codec, but if your files are already lossy compressed you can't ...

Have you tried compositing it with Blender? I think you can achieve pretty much what you want with it. Look for tutorials but here is an example. This is a tutorial for creating a hologram, but you can take the part on how to create the horizontal lines from the cathodic ray TVs.

I doubt that GoPro studio doesn't let you use vids from another source because I used footage from a sony cybershot. Moreover, on there website it says that it supports full capabillity to cannon and nikon cameras. If you are using windows 8 .mov files aren't supported. It supports all video files of H264 mp4 and mov for all other versions of windows. ...

If you have an editing package, you can see if any of the popular lens flare plug-ins are available for it. For example: mFlare Knoll Light Factory I know that Motion has a built-in lens flare generator. I'd assume most other packages do, too.

I think the type of lens flare you're looking for is anamorphic lens flare.
