There's a semi-automatic way to do this – semi automatic because it involves only typing three keystrokes over and over: xf,, xf,, xf,… — you could train your cat to do it! Here's how it goes: make sure the audio is enabled for the tracks you want to restore (you only need to do this once) park the playhead over one of the clips. hit x (for Mark Clip) to ...

You should export multiple versions to accommodate for different browsers. With HTML5, you can offer different versions of the video and the browser will automatically pick the first one that's supported. For example, take a look at the source code of the paypal website you refered to: <video autoplay="autoplay" muted="muted" poster="none"> <...

Yes - while playing the video, press the L key to increase playback speed and press the J key to decrease it. For further options, please reference the relevant Premiere Pro documentation.

I found that using Adobe Media Encoder is much easier when just cropping. Add the video to the queue and open the export settings. On the source tab you can crop the video and there you can also enter how many pixels to remove at each side. Remember to set the correct output size in the video tab on the right side. Here is a screenshot showing how i did it:

First, add your desired transition to your timeline, allowing it to be applied to only one of your clips for now: Select the transition and open the Effect Controls panel: Finally, from the Alignment dropdown, simply select the "Center at Cut" option: The transition will now be applied to both clips!

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!

Since this is the top google result, I would like to give the actual solution to this problem Option 1 Duplicate the .prproj file you want to downgrade and name it temp_downgrade.prproj or something. Just so you don't have to mess with the original. Download 7zip. Right click on temp_downgrade.prproj and select Extract here. You should see temp_downgrade ...

A while back I ran some introductory video editing workshops. I used to tell the participants about a particularly cool effect that I once found in Pinnacle; it was a pinhata that came swinging into the first video along with a stick that hit the second video out of it and it unfolded across the screen. The point of this anecdote is the following: Don't use ...

When you apply a transition between two clips, Premiere needs to use the frames of footage for each clip that go to the start and end of the transition. If there's no footage past that point, it won't allow you to apply the transition. Consider my illustration below. You may need to have some footage remaining after the end of your clip to allow for this....

I think I've found the easiest way! Just crop the area you want. Go to the Export window without worrying about the black margins showing. Set the final resolution and export settings as you would want. (THIS IS THE IMPORTANT ONE) On the top left of the Export Window, there are two tabs; SOURCE and OUTPUT. Go to the Source Tab. On the left-most side, find ...

Version control in the sense of Git isn't very practical in the video world. You would need to make a specific version control tool for every audio and video tool out there as all work with their own project formats. But being able to read these formats is just one thing, then you also need the render engine of that tool to show diff's. Though all of these ...

MERGING VIDEO CLIPS To combine video clips there is something called Nested Sequence. A very powerful technique. When adding clips to a timeline you are working in what is called a sequence (normally named Sequence 01), drop your two clips into your timeline and rename your sequence 01 to something like 'My day trip to the market'. Select a different ...

According to Adobe, it's a bug. Until Adobe fixes this bug with an update, the workaround is to switch off GPU acceleration in Project Settings.

Simply double click the Sequence Preview and you get handles to resize the footage and you can drag the footage around in the frame.

As MoritzLost says, downscale. Maybe put a link somewhere to the full-quality version for people that are interested. Lower rez will also lower resource usage on the client side. Even downscaling to 640p, 576p, or even 480p might be good, depending on the content, and how visible it will still be behind the text of your page. Also, since EVERYONE that ...

You need to expand the track to be large enough to see the waveforms and overlaid keyframes. Mouse over the horizontal line that divides A2 from A3, drag downward, and your waveforms and keyframes should be revealed. If you right-click in the waveform area, you have the option as to which keyframes it will display in the window. By default it's Volume:...

This is a well-known bug when exporting to H.264. Unfortunately, I'm not clever enough to understand why this happens, but it's a side effect of using the codec. I'll keep looking for an explanation I understand, however I wanted to get this answer out there. As a workaround for now, I suggest making a quick little eyeball adjustment to the comp's colour ...

I would probably approach it by first measuring the size of the area that you want to crop to. This can be done by exporting a frame of the image and cropping in another program (like Photoshop). I would then create a sequence based on the other settings of the video, but alter the resolution of the sequence to be that of the portion of the video you ...

Just to add to the previous responses: While there's nothing quite like Git for the video world, there are Digital Asset Management/Media Asset Management tools that can more or less do the same thing - version control and permission/user management (they also do a lot more, as they're really built as libraries for your media). For years, I used Apple's ...

Is Adobe Premiere Elements good enough for video editing? In general, yes. It is a watered down Version of Premiere Pro for people that would be overwhelmed by a full-featured professional editing tool and just want to cut their video easily and quickly. This means that a lot of the features of Premiere Pro will only be available in a simplified variation,...

Those are interlacing problems it looks like. In the editor, it displays 'deinterlaced' previews so you won't notice this in the editor. In the clip, select "Field options" and then "Always deinterlace" then render your video again, it should be fine then.

It's not very clear what they mean. If you look further down on the same page it says it accepts 5.1 @ 512 kbps. Recommended audio bitrates for uploads Mono 128 kbps Stereo 384 kbps 5.1 512 kbps YouTube doesn't currently support 5.1 playback. If you upload a 5.1 audio track it gets converted to stereo.

The K key is a modifier and stop playback key. Play in reverse To move the playhead in reverse at a normal speed, press J. To move it backwards faster, press JJ. To move backward slowly, press J and K. To move back one frame at a time, press K and tap the J key. To play in reverse slightly faster, press Shift + J. . . Play forward To move the ...

1) Everytime the GPU has to process something, it will load the necessary data (in that case your video frames) into the VRAM. Simple as that, the GPU cannot work with your system memory. Though the GPU gets it's data from the system memory, so your system memory will act as a buffer and you don't need to load that much data at once into the VRAM. Though ...

I can't give an After-Effects specific answer, but maybe this will help.. 1 - If you want to color a specific part of the image, deal with "region based filtering." In DaVinci-speak, that's Power Windows. Masks, Shapes, Roto. However you phrase it. That's how you tell the computer what part of the image you want to effect. Tie the mask to a tracker so ...

While chroma-keying is a good technique for dealing with solids, it doesn't work so well when dealing with transparent or semi-transparent objects. Because the difference can be very subtle, you want to copy the difference instead or blend off luminance. In Premiere, you can use the Set Matte effect to set a track as a luminance matte. In the case of the ...

Is it possible? Sure, just setup each source clip as a sequence that has the audio feed you want for that shot and leave the tracks linked so that you cut between both video and audio. Is it advisable? Probably not. People are far less used to changing of the audio scene they are watching. Video creates kind of a disconnect between the scene we are ...

This is a fast way to copy the clips in succession. Copy the video clip CMD/CTRL + C Target ONLY the track that the loop will be on Then swiftly insert it multiple times by just holding down CMD/CTRL and pressing V multiple times in a row

Version control doesn't really have as much of a place in video editing because it is by nature non-destructive. At the core of any NLE(non-linear video editor), the output is actually something known as an Editing Decision List or EDL. This is extremely analogous to the history in Lightroom as that history is a record of all changes that have been applied ...
