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 ...

The easiest way is to use ffmpeg or avconv. The command: ffmpeg -i mjpegvideo.avi -vcodec copy frame%d.jpg will create a series of jpeg without reencoding.

If you have a frame where the person does not exist, you can use a tool called a difference matte. (You'll need to scroll down to the section titled "Difference Matte Effect" for a description.) It will find a difference between the frame without the person, and the frames with a person and remove areas that are the same, leaving only the difference (in this ...

Both MKV and MP4 are container file formats. Container formats define how actual audio, video, subtitle and other data are structured. MKV is an open standard format, while MP4 comes from the ISO and is based on the QuickTime file format.

"I copy pasted Final Cut Events and Final Cut Projects folders to my external HD but I don't know how to restore it into project in FC. Any help is appreciated." It's better to perform this type of operation from within FCPX, instead of the Finder via copy/paste. With the project selected in the Project Library, choose File->Move Project... As long as you ...

The short film, Wildebeest was rendered in Adobe After Effects and Flash. This is the quote from an interview by the director Ant Blades. "The film is animated in Flash and AfterEffects. The main aim was to be funny. The secondary aim was to develop a style I hadn’t tried before." Source:"Filmmaker Ant Blades, Wildebeest" Workflow of Mr Blades is to first ...

There are quite a few programs that do so-called "full reference" measurement, i.e. comparing an original against a degraded signal: http://www.acceptv.com/en/products_vqa.php http://compression.ru/video/quality_measure/index_en.html (commercial) http://www.its.bldrdoc.gov/resources/video-quality-research/guides-and-tutorials/description-of-vqm-tools.aspx (...

Final Cut Pro X has a plugin called Pro Removal that can remove moving things from the scene on fixed camera shots. Also there is a tutorial for After Effects that shows how remove objects from scene using the tracker. Also you can clean frame by frame using Photoshop or similar if you have a good amount of time to spend or a crew to help you in the task.

Blender, which is free and open-source, can do difference matte keying. I don't know if it's better or worse than After Effects' keyer because I haven't used it before.

I dont know of any software for Premiere that can do this (there are plugins for After Effects but cant find any for Premiere - thats not to say they arent out there). I think your best option would be to export your sequence as an XML. You will loose any CS5.5 features there are not in CS3, but this would occur regardless of which method you use to get ...

This is possible with the FFmpeg command ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -ss 0 -c copy -t 60 output.mp4. This would cut the video from the beginning -ss 0 to second 60 -t 60. Be aware that -ss is and offset which -t is based upon. So -ss 10 and -t 60 would result in cutting to second 70 and removing the first 10. You can use the -to option to cut at a fixed time ...

I recently encountered this exact problem and I was able to repair the file using Untrunc, a program created specifically to solve this problem, as suggested by sparrowt on SuperUser: For this method you need: another video file which isn't broken a linux installation (I used Ubuntu 12.04) and basic ability to use a command line. This is ...

Using Quicktime Player 7 you can export any movie file as an Image Sequence Open your .mov file using Quicktime 7 File > Export In the Export dropdown select Movie to Image Sequence Open the options and set the export format (eg JPEG or PNG) If you want just the current frame leave the frames per second blank. Otherwise, enter hte videos frame rate and ...

All of the pro video editors have a means of animating titles to some degree, some are better than others. I am only experienced with Sony Vegas Pro 10, but I have seen my colleagues use Adobe Premiere with Adobe After Effects to create some mind blowing 'dancing' titles. Vegas has plugins available to boost their basic package but the basic package can do ...

If you had just 4:3 and 16:9 videos, I would suggest: ffmpeg -i input.mov -filter:v 'scale=-1:768,crop=1024:ih' \ -c:v libx264 -crf 23 -preset veryfast output.mp4 That would scale a video to a height of 768, scaling the width to keep the aspect ratio; and then it crops the width to 1024, keeping the height at 768. The fact that you are using 1:1 videos as ...

For this purpose I like to use SolveigMM Video Splitter. It's very fast and lossless video tool (no recompression) and it fully supports H.264 video (GoPro records in mp4 files using h.264 compression).

I think it is mostly a structural thing. Games generally involves simple interaction with a lot of similar content. Hardware devices have a physical interface and while they can run lots of different software, the capabilities of the device are reasonably easy to describe. For general productivity software, the interactions are complex, but not so deep, ...

Gstreamer offers the ability to overlay images on videos and has also excellent live streaming capabilities.

If you are open to a hardware only solution (possibly cheaper than having a dedicated PC for the task and certainly far more reliable), then what you are looking for is a device called a logo generator/keyer. Basically, the device constantly outputs a video of the logo you want to overlay and keys it on to the video stream being passed through. The ...

I haven't used VLC as my primary player since 2007. I switched over initially to KMPlayer and then Potplayer. Potplayer allows fairly flexible splitter and codec assignment for decoding. It also sports a whole host of video and audio processing filters. In fact, I believe that one can use Avisynth filters to process the video during playback, too.

Updated: this tool can now recover files from more sources. Try with recover_mp4_to_h264. It's a command line program, and will require a good reference file. Usage as indicated: recover_mp4 in_good_similar.mp4 --analyze recover_mp4 in_corrupted.mp4 {out_video.h264 | out_video.hevc | --novideo} [out_audio.aac | out_audio.wav | out_audio.mp3 | out_audio....

Most consumer video recording software I know compresses on capture. Mpeg and others can be configured for lower quality if you want greater compression, but unless you are recording a plain black screen at night in the dark, nothing will give you the level of compression you mention - it just isn't possible.

In video, there is no "I don't have disk space" or "I want to add compression to files to lower my disk space usage and caching". You should record uncompressed, work uncompressed, and at the final stage export the uncompressed video to a suitable format for delivery. Record your video. Edit wherever you want (I suggest Vegas, because is the fastest on pc)...

AAF is the newer and more complete framework. It is the successor to OMF, which still lives on but mostly because of legacy applications. Note that Automatic Duck makes a line of highly-regarded tools that help with import and export of these interchange formats and have recently been made available for free.

I would personally use After Effects, but that's because it's what I have/know. If you don't want to take the purple pill (it's a questionable life decision, let's face it) there's heaps of other software you could use, but three free ones are: Blender a FOSS 3D animation package that also does 2D and even traditional hand drawn animation, as well as ...

You could try: Turning off ray tracing Lowering the resolution Turning off soft shadows unless needed In Blender, use the Simplify option These and others are covered in this blenderguru article

You should have the option of export to QuickTime - which is pretty widely used. And even if you don't like those format options you can convert to something else easily from there.

As @Oliver-G said above, your final use of the footage will dictate your render settings. But I'm going to explain HOW rendering works, because it's essential knowledge. Rendering is the process of taking your After Effects comp - a series of instructions of how to process files - and writing every pixel's value to a file (See footnote 1). The way AE does ...

Adobe After Effects is probably the most common application for creating motion graphics. There are plenty of books and tutorials out there to get your started.
