This is an addition to the excellent answer by PTS and an answer for chovy. If you want to place the overlay at the lower right corner, FFMPEG can calculate that for you very easily. Use the modified command: ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -i image.png \ -filter_complex "[0:v][1:v] overlay=W-w:H-h:enable='between(t,0,20)'" \ -pix_fmt yuv420p -c:a copy \ ...

Your use of pitch and yaw is correct, but it looks like you have just overcompensated a little. Your vanishing point for the lines is too near - that bottom line shows this by angling up too much. If you correct them by assuming the vanishing point from the top and bottom of whiteboard, you will get a more natural look, and then your text will look more ...

When an editor is finished, the edit is said to be "locked," or in "picture lock." Best practice for file-naming, however, is to use a date string at the beginning of the file name (such as YYYYMMDD_ProjectName.mov), and to avoid descriptors like "locked" or "final." Otherwise you end up with files named, "...

That would be a task of compositing using something like Nuke or After-Effects. Here's how I'd tackle something like this: Grab a frame of the person looking directly in the camera Track the positions of the eyes ("track_left" and "track_right" as seperates) Mask out the eyes from the still-frame and separate them into eye_left and ...

The clips you cut in your timeline can’t be copied into the media pool because technically these aren’t individual clips yet. Just references to the original media. You can rearrange these easily in your timeline. Just drag and drop clips in your timeline. Everything will move around the clip you change position.

You cannot do this with Premiere. The media info of the recording tell us that you need a maximum video bitrate of 0.108 Mbps to achieve 15 Mbyte. However Premiere's smallest available bitrate is 0.19 Mbps which would yield a 23 Mbyte final video (including the audio) in theory which is pretty close to what you see. As far as I know you cannot get below that....

If I may, I would recommend using Davinci Resolve for this. It's free and does what you want way better than premiere. Since your question was raised for premiere though, let me propose two different solutions for this. Use a Luma-Matte for an adjustment layer. To to this: Duplicate your footage Apply curves on the footage to maximise the contrast. (the ...

Without seeing the tutorial, it's difficult to say exactly, but I think what is happening is that the colour matte nest that you've created, is being used to control the blur on your other layer, probably by being set to being used as an "alpha matte". If your colour matte layer wasn't nested, I think Premiere wouldn't be able to see the alpha ...

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 concat filter uses the frame rate of the first input as the framerate for the output stream. Some MKV/WebM files don't write valid framerates. That can lead ffmpeg to assign a framerate of 1000 (the inverse of default timebase in Matroska), which can lead to huge frame duplication. Set a sane output framerate for such scenarios. ffmpeg -i intro.mkv -i ...

The reason why your video is blurry is because of your target bitrate, which is 0.24 mbps. (I assume you meant mbps instead of mbpd). Raising this value to a target of 4 and a maximum of 6 should give you a significantly better result. It will also increase your filesize, however. I am assuming that the video might be between 200 and 300 MB.

Chameleons do have some pretty wild colors they can change into, and the process is extremely advanced, requiring physicists and biologists to fully understand how it works; check out this video for how it works. Personal note: Something this advanced doesn't happen by random chance. Anyway, my personal opinions aside, it appears to me, this video was ...

Take a look at using noise turbulence to displace the image. You can do this in after effects. There are lots of good tutorials on it. I recommend this one: Maybe add some images so we can see what you have and what you’re going for.

Assuming that it's not changing perspective or moving around too much, I would use a tracker on the tattoo and a clone stamp from another area of skin. More elaborate removal could be done with Mocha, or using a mesh warping tracker like Lockdown, which has a demo of tattoo removal in their showreel at 0m24s:

When you record each track, make sure that the level never goes up to zero on the meter. If it hits zero, it means that the recording is clipping. Clipping is when the computer can no longer accurately record the waveform. So instead of recording the shape of the wave, the upper and lower limits of it will be clipped in a straight line. So a tone sound ...

Markers are part of the XMP standard and are stored in the file. So yes, it's comparable to EXIF. You should notice, that immediately when adding a marker, the file on the disk will be changed, meaning the change date of the file should update. At least that's true on Windows. I don't know what file system a Mac uses and if that's behaving differently. In ...

Create a new library and then click on 'New Project'. Here you can change the format to any resolution you want. In the sync dialogue your can also set a custom video format.

You would do this kind of thing in After-Effects or a similar compositing program (like Nuke or Fusion). Simply duplicate your video as many times as you want the move to be repeated, then offset the layers in time, and lastly roughly mask out the person from every shot except the very bottom layer.

To minimise the file size for distribution of something like this, you need a Variable Frame Rate encoder, which will effectively just encode 1 frame, and set the frame rate such that there's no further frames. I've not seen this available in Adobe (or any commercial product I've looked into), but definitely there are services I've seen encoding video this ...

If you have Premiere, chances are you have After Effects, which would be the best option for this job. But Premiere is still capable of doing it, without any roundtripping to other aps. Here's my results, I just used a screenshot of your screenshot, so you'll probably get a better result using your original footage. To get this I duplicated the layer, and ...

In Resolve, "Power Bins" are what you use to make elements available across projects. Unfortunately, as of version 16.3, Resolve won't store Compound Clips, Multicam Clips or Fusion Clips inside a Power Bin. However, in your case, a workaround is fairly straightforward. Whether your image is static or animated; an exported still image, file ...

One way to do it is to overlay the relevant part of the presentation with another image (could be a blank image). This is called picture in picture, which is often used to overlay another video across part of a background video, but of course the same principle works for still images too. You need a video editor that offers such a feature, any professional ...

I personally use RaceRender, however, there is also DashWare. Both can edit video and add GPS position overlays. Bare in mind, neither of them can add the actual "map" like one from Google Maps, just a line showing your path and a marker showing the current location. Again, my personal preference is to use RR or DW to produce a video with a magenta ...

There are 2 solutions: Create a sequence with all assets that have not been used so far, but which you would like to keep. Next, use the Project Manager to export all relevant files to a new location (your archive) and have "Exclude unused Clips" checked. You may choose to do 2 exports: one with all the sequences for the main video except the ...

As mentioned in the comments, I realized that Premiere Pro was the wrong tool for the job. Thanks to Florian I got started with ffmpeg. For the sake of any future users who might want something like this, I thought I'd share my solution. The following Command helps me convert my wmv source file to mp4 with a png watermark in the bottom right corner and the ...

EDIT: You need to be clear what your goal is. If this is a summer project and just something for some friends to work on together right now, I'd suggest getting Blender (https://www.blender.org/) and learning to use it together. Make some of your establishing shots, if you can. Or start on a script. 99% of people with good ideas for a movie never make it ...

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 ...

Calm down. Final Cut Pro X is a software for professionals and as such requires a certain investment of time until you can work with it. If you are not willing to do this you should look for a simpler tool. Yes, of course it's possible to do what you want, but to me it sounds like you don't know the basics of how to operate the software. To get you started, ...

In Resolve 17.1, Build 24, you can fix this issue by creating an alpha output in color view » nodes. Here is a reddit post I made about it with a screenshot on how to fix it, plus a link to the BMD forum post discussing the issue.
