The kind of X you are seeing usually appears when applying a demo-version of a transition of an effect. Are you sure you are not using some third-party transition pack that you simply haven't bought yet? Try using the standard cross-dissolve and report back if the X remains with native transitions. Cheers!

The action you're trying to perform is called “stabilization,” which is usually performed by analyzing the entire frame when the goal is to eliminate camera shake, but when you want a single object to stay in place, you'd track a single point, or small area of the target, and apply the same counter-movement that you would to eliminate shake. In AE, point ...

The problem that you won't be able to easily fix is the missing parts of the right hand in the foreground layer. But if you're ok with that there are a couple of ways to do this shot. First you could key out the white part using a colour key effect. This is going to be problematic, because there are white parts of the image that you want to keep, like the ...

Yes, your observation is correct and everything works fine. Even if settings are identitcal, the file hashes will always be different. The reason is quite simple: XMP metadata which is embedded in the files. Such metadata entries which are often different are: time stamps (not only the date but the time too) creation date modified date metadata date IDs ...

I've finally found out the answer. It is possible, but fiddly. For the source timecodes for every clip: Duplicate your sequence. Find the Timecode effects in the Effects panel and apply it to the first clip in the sequence. Double click the clip and go to Effects controls and make sure the Timecode Source effect is set to "Media". Then copy the ...

Make sure the size of your comp in After Effects is the same as the size of your original video clip. Make sure the clip in your layer is set to scale 100%.

Knowing the details about what format your camera recorded is often as simple as consulting the manual. However, some cameras shoot multiple formats, and often, editors are given footage from unknown or unreliable sources. One of the best tools for discovering the full details of an A/V file is the command line utility, mediainfo. Depending on whether or ...

Use a dropdown. Select Dropdown Expression Control from Effects>Expression Controls and hit edit to input the colour names. Then use a switch to deal with the four possible choices. let colourChoice = Math.round(thisComp.layer("White Solid 1").effect("Dropdown Menu Control")("Menu")); switch (colourChoice){ case 1 : [7, ...

Hold the Shift-Key pressed and move your mouse wheel to scroll the timeline horizontally. This works when not playing as well as when playing but only if the timeline is not auto-scrolling. If you want to keep the playhead centered, go to Edit-Menu -> Preferences -> Timeline and select "Smooth Scroll" where it says "Timeline Playback ...

Open a text editor and find the ▶︎ unicode symbol. It will be called something like: BLACK RIGHT-POINTING TRIANGLE Unicode: U+25B6 U+FE0E, UTF-8: E2 96 B6 EF B8 8E Open a sequence in premiere and create a text object. Keyframe the opacity to 100% Move forward 15 frames Keyframe the opaticty to 0% Select the two keyframes Right click them and set them to &...

I think this is likely to be due to out of phase audio in one of the stereo channels. Below is a copy of my answer from here: Premiere Pro audio muffled and distorted on export (I have tried to flag this as duplicate, but cannot because the answer wasn't accepted). This might be because you are exporting a stereo audio file which has one channel phase ...

Issues like these usually arise when you either have the layer transformed in 3D-space, or when using distortions and transform-effects on the layer. Since you do not have the 3D-checkbox ticked, I assume that you have some sort of transformation applied in the effect-controls. Did you use something like cc-lens, mesh-warp or turbulent displace? If so, first ...

I think you’ve probably identified the cause. I’ve found when using mobile phone footage (And video conference captures) both premiere and after effects can incorrectly identify frame rates. If all the footage is around 59.93-60fps, I would try transcoding it all to 60fps first using a codec suitable for editing (like ProRes), making sure it’s all in sync ...

Summarizing what I learned from this page and the steps I ended up taking to crop & make a new clip at that exact size: Crop Video & Export at that exact new size (e.g. for getting rid of any unwanted black bars): Import video into Project Panel. Drag onto Timeline Window to create a Sequence. Choose In/Out points. (“i” and “o” keys) File > Export ...

HAdobe publish this information on their website - see this link or below: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/system-requirements.html It's pretty simple, personally I would use the recommended specifications as a minimum in a professional environment. If it's for personal learning, then it's your call how much you spend, but don't get anything less than ...

First use the trial to test if it runs well on your system. It's the same version as the full version. If you start After Effects it will ask if you want to start the trial now (unless they changed the procedure since the last time I looked). Adobe has this cloud apps overview tool that let's you install and update apps. Here you could also choose to install ...

According to Adobe: Workspaces are stored in XML files in the preferences folder. With some caveats regarding monitor size and layout, these workspaces can be moved to another computer and used there.

The high pass plugin in Photoshop doesn't exist natively in After Effects or Premiere. The Find Edges tool approximates the kind of effect you're after, but given that it's for a scientific assessment of something, probably won't work for you: You could try something like the Unsharp Mask in After Effects or Premiere, and then apply it back to the original ...
