give em an ego boost

Post by lakewud »

Have been scouting around the 140pgs on this useful forum for the last few days. Very insightful to see other peoples problems with using Videostudio. The longer im here, the more im sure to learn.

However, aside from 'dropshots' i havent come across any other sites mentioned where i can view other members work. What i really would love to see are other peoples efforts.

Reading about their problems with transitions etc..cant help wondering just what use they put them too. Call me nosey, call me devoid of any ideas for my projects and want to nick them...whatever..but theres nothing better than once youve edited it wanting to show it off, even family footage....I know i would love to bore you all with mine..once i can master the edit and getting on the web!!

Truth be told most people over use fancy effects and transitions.

ex: experienced editors use straight cuts, crossfades, fades to/from black and wipes for 95% or more of their transitions, saving the fancy stuff for use as 'video exclamation points' or important segues.

As for transition artifacting in a render, one reason comes down to how one classifies such effects when, for example, rendering them to MPEG which is the typical destination format.

If fast moving scene elements outrun the ability of the MPEG encoders motion search engine to track them this almost always results in artifacting. If a transition is complex and/or of short duration it qualifies as 'fast motion' content just as much as a race car or any other fast moving object in the scene.

The standard motion search pattern is only 3x3 pixels, so the solution most people miss is to enlarge the motion search pattern in the Advanced MPEG options to something like 8x8 or 16x16. You can also set up rectangular searches (ie: 16w x 8h) if the motion is only horizontal or vertical.

Terry thanks for your reply.

I do realise that the vast majority of screen work limits the use of transitions and the like to the minimum for obvious reasons.

I still suspect that from what i have seen - namely dropshots - i havent really been impressed with both the use of the capibilites at our fingertips nowadays and more importantly the actual footage shot.

Hence my original question, that of showcasing other peoples work in the vein hope that despite all the impressive sounding talk regarding just what you can do, and have done etc...lets see it so to speak. Im sure im not the only one who would be intrested in seeing whats out there.

fade some one in/out of a scene

Post by Ken Veal »

try this
Film a scene preferably with nothing moving in the background using a tripod.Film the same scene with the person in it.Place the 2 shot with the person in it into the overlay track and use the fade transition.
