comment How to get a better quality diagonal line from Flash to YouTube?
What you're probably seeing there is an artefact of chroma subsampling. Youtube videos are usually compressed as h.264 with 4:2:0 subsampling. What this means is that colour is sampled at a quarter of the resolution of brightness. A workaround would be to use a less saturated red.

comment Reasons to use DNxHD instead of ProRes?
If you're using a windows machine then that's a good reason to use DNxHD.

comment How to Extract clips from a CD?
When you say 'dvd cds' do yopu mean VCD, or user-burnt DVD's. If you open them up using Explorer/Finder what folders do you see?

comment Software to make a transcript?
With the Premiere transcription thing I always found that the time spent hunting through the transcript and checking for errors was greater than the time it would take to just write it yourself. Especially as the errors are sometimes not apparent unless you're reading it while listening to the voice, and even then a few always slip through. We have to transcribe everything we produce and we use an online transcription service. The price beats paying one of the office staff for the time it takes for them to do the transcription (and then for me to check the timings) by an order of magnitude.

comment Making Premiere Pro Project Codecs Cross-Platform Compatible (Windows & Mac)
You could troubleshoot by removing that file and sending a test version. That said, Animation files work fine on my Windows machine. One thing that sticks out is the quicktime (Desktop) preview file format. Maybe change that to all I-Frame MPEG?

comment How do I recreate this Annotation effect In After Effects?
Well, I guess it depends on the look you're going for. I can't see what's so difficult about doing a 3D track. It's actually easier to use than the 2D tracker - you don't have to anything except run the tracker and create a camera when it's done analysing in the background. With a 2D tracker you have to set up track points, nurse the tracker through the analysis, and then apply the tracker to the target layer, for each target you want to track.

The good thing about a 3D camera track is that once you've done it all your 3D layers track properly without any more effort on your behalf. So if you had multiple annotations you'd have to 2D track each one, which would take way more time than one 3D track. 3D tracks also 3D so you get correct perspective, as well as rotation and scale.
