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!

Make sure to render partially transparent clips with a codec that supports alpha. Try using prores4444 and set the colors to rgb+alpha like you did. This filetype and codec should give you a file with a transparent background.

I think you might be getting confused. Have you tried re-importing the video back into AE and checking the alpha channel there? Otherwise use your player app's information function to check the pixel format, it should tell you if there's an alpha channel present. MPV (my fave) has this function, as does VLC (tried and tested fave). Also Quicktime is not a ...

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 ...

Are you exporting to h.264? Try rendering to a master file in a intermediate codec like ProRes, Cineform or DNxHR. Rendering to h.264 involves referencing multiple frames to create the intermediate frames. When those frames have to be rendered first it adds an extra drain on resources, particularly memory. Is the computer hitting the limits of available ...

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 ...

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 &...

Yes, this is possible. Simply right-click your logo in the Project-Panel and select "replace file", then select your new logo.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

It's all about the little sun icon on each layer, called "Collapse Transformations": It chooses whether to display the image as a vector (sharp) or as a bitmap (possibly blurry depending on the resolution of the layer). There's lots online about it - here's one example: https://www.schoolofmotion.com/blog/collapse-transformations-continuously-rasterize-...

You can add a new adjustment layer at the top of your composition, with the Levels effect set to the following: Input Black: 254 Input White: 255 This will have the result of causing any luma values that were below 254 to become black, while anything above it becomes white. Here is an example of it over a fractal noise pattern: Before After

There are a ton of options. The easiest one that can be done in any decent video editor, is preparing a transparent shape. You are used to thinking about the text being the object. But if you combine it with the big rectangle you now have a rectangle with a hole with the shape of some text. Put that in a layer above a video and you are done. For the ...

What do Audition/Premiere show as the bit-rate of the audio file in the original source video? What do iMovie/Premiere show as the bit-rate of the audio file when imported back in? Sounds like possibly the source video is indicating an incorrect bit-rate, i.e. actually recorded at 48kHz, but being identified/treated/exported as 44.1kHz in Audition, which ...

A possible workaround would be to use the Venetian Blinds filter. Here with a bit of experimentation I've made a path with a stroke of 20 and for the blind effect I have doubled the width to 40. The Transition Completion value is set to 50% so that half of the effect is achieved. You might want to play around with the settings if you want longer dashes or ...

Proxies Consider using proxies: especially if this is 4k or bigger. A proxy is a lower res stand-in for editing. Upon export the original, bigger, higher quality originals will be used to create the output. See Adobe Premiere Pro User Guide: Proxy Workflow for more info. You can have Premiere create the proxies, or create them with ffmpeg and have Premiere ...
