comment How do I cut out black space on a video?
You might want to check the "repeat edge pixels" box in the blur filter to get rid of the dark lines around the outside.

comment Encoding Video For Archiving Using Premiere Pro CS6
Yes, if you trim it it re-encodes. If you don't re-encode then you can choose to keep just the clips you use. If your footage is just one long take then this method won't save much space—In that case you might be better re-encoding in one of the codecs mentioned.

You don't necessarily have to re-encode - see my answer.

comment Premiere project exported with Adobe Media Encoder is not producing DVD-compliant files. Works in Premiere. Are there settings to adjust?
To get a better answer, it would be good to describe what settings you are using in your export, and what software you are using to author your DVD.

comment How do I match the audio and video streams in my video file with the audio I recorded separately?
This isn't really answering the question. The problem is not getting them in synch, but keeping them in synch because they play back at slightly different rates. BTW did you know that premiere can synch separate audio streams without plugins? adobe.ly/1E4Ros2

comment Motion graphics vs compositing
I wouldn't say "blended" is technical, it's a synonym for "mixed". "Fuse" is more for connecting things (usually using heat to melt them). You might say "the colours were blended" but you wouldn't say "the colours were fused".

Melted? That might not be the right word. "Blended" maybe?

comment Multiple video encoding loss
Why render them as an intermediate step? I'm not sure about Blender, but most other NLEs let you nest one sequence into another without having to render. So you can do your edits and drag your edited sequences into the compilation sequence.

comment Moving Crop in Video
ImageMagick could do the cropping if you have numerical description of the crop frame. I'd suggest: export as image sequence using ffmpeg, batch process using ImageMagick and remux as a movie in ffmpeg. You'll need some sort of shell scripting to glue it all together probably. If you post an example of the file with the crop info I can work out the details for you.

comment video artifacts
Welcome to Video Production. Adding some example images to your question would help people to answer it. Sounds a bit like the "rod" phenomenon, which had credulous people convinced there were rod shaped insects that were invisible to the naked eye but not to video cameras: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rod_%28optics%29

comment 25 frames per seconds and 30 frames per seconds footage in one seq
VFR playback may have existed for years, but unless you know exactly that your audience is using software / hardware that supports it, it sounds like a recipe for disaster.

comment What is the proper workflow for slightly different framerates, i.e. 30, 29.97, 29.976?
You do know that your Canon 60D records in YUV not RGB, don't you? Converting to RGB won't improve the video, but it will incrrease file sizes.

comment How to DISABLE--NOT REMOVE subtitle tracks from an MKV file from the command line?
I don't think you need to be so belligerent. This answer tells you how to disable not remove subtitles, and it does so in a way that is easy to reverse.

comment How do I change frame size, preserving width (using ffmpeg)?
If you're using recent versions of ffmpeg you don't need to stipulate x264 as the codec any more, but it still might be worth looking at what settings you might want.

comment 'Seamless' loop hangs/pauses at beginning of clip
It could be fiddly, but another way to workaround the problem would be to remove a few frames from the beginning or end of the loop. This would only work for certain content, but it might may the transition less noticeable.

comment 'Seamless' loop hangs/pauses at beginning of clip
Another workaround is to have a few of the loops in the video, so that if there is any stuttering it will happen less frequently. Of course, this will increase your file size too. I do this for video that gets used in a large public venue. A lot of times the video is played back using devices like Roku boxes that can stutter on each loop. I edit the loops into as long a video as I can fit on the card, so there'll only be a stutter once every hour or so.
