Enthusiastic amateur - worked as a presales engineer for a Silicon Graphics company back in the day, so did a fair bit of animation with Alias Wavefront, then Maya.

Still do video editing on various platforms, as well as sound editing.

Sonar and Cubase are my preferred audio platforms.

comment How to add gradient transparency mask in final cut pro x?
Can you edit your post to explain how to set up the transform as requested? Without that, this doesn't really answer the question.

You can use Video Production Chat (which has variable rates of activity) for discussions.

I just kind of figure if I can't read it, others will give up too, so it's best to work on it. Sorry the close reason was not really right :-)

comment Variable Bitrates for Streaming?
I think you misunderstand what variable bitrate encoding does. It doesn't introduce stuttering or pausing.

comment lift adobe premiere ram allocation limit?
This doesn't seem like a Premiere issue, but an issue with your PC. As Andrew said, you may not actually be able to use more than 32Gb.

Assembling a PNG sequence in AE is very straightforward, though - it is often the simplest way.

comment Hick-ups when I make mpeg2 export (Premiere ProCS5)
Usually this is because your processor is not powerful enough, or your disk is too slow to manage the mpeg2 export along with the other background tasks a PC needs to do. Solutions include faster processor/RAM, more disks or faster disks.

Hi Jim - adding a quick summary, or a quoted section of the key answer points would make this a much more valuable answer.

comment What tools do you use for command line editing?
This is not a question - it is very much an "I dislike ffmpeg and like these other tools - what do you use" post. Which is not helpful, and is entirely opinion based.

comment Why don't phones correct vertical filming?
The default video camera app on the OnePlus One does intelligently sense what orientation you have recorded video on, and plays it exactly as you would expect. I discovered this at the weekend when uploading video I took at a Slash gig to my computer. Most of the videos were of the whole stage, but I recorded some portrait video of Slash playing solos - worked perfectly.

comment How to encode 60p MP4 video to play on TVs?
have you tried checking which codecs your TV can play (the manual should tell you) and convert to them. Or convert to video and just feed that to your TV over HDMI.
