by Edward Gilman in the Adobe Premiere Pro Forum
Hello, I am creating a MPEG2-DVD from Adobe Premier CC 2017 which is the only format that plays on our DVD Player (Samsung DVD-1080p9) on a USB Drive. For some reason, the MPEG2-DVD adds an additional 20 seconds to the end of some of my videos. Some of them export...

Re: Avid Offline to Resolve Online
by Jake Diamond in the DaVinci Resolve Forum
Thank you very much! This all worked perfectly. I have one last question: In terms of copying media from camera cards, do I include the whole card, and every folder/subfolder to keep the structure intact? Or can I go in and grab just the .mxf file from a Sony FS7...

The 2nd GPU... it does nothing!!

by Derek Boettcher in the Adobe After Effects Forum
I know this has been a hot topic with some people, but the removal of multiprocessing felt like a step back with AE's render system. I understand that it was a necessary evil for them in order to continue their updates and development. In the meantime, are there any third...

Re: AE scripting: using the colorpicker
by Tim Hildebrandt in the Adobe After Effects Expressions Forum
I could manage it, to find a work around. I create a new layer inside the active comp (if there is none, create one), apply the " ADBE Color Control " and execute the " edit value " command through AE. This brings the default AE color picker with the...

Re: American Football game video production behind goal posts
by Bruce Watson in the Field Production Forum
A popular option for a "pole cam" is a PTZ camera. Security cameras became so popular for this that manufacturers like NewTek have offerings now. Their new PTZ NDI camera looks very interesting, and it's seemingly in your price range. BTW, what "27' giant carbon fiber tripods" are you thinking...

That would be a completely unprecedented method for Apple. They seem not to care about maximizing the profit from an individual sale of FCP X, but rather selling more licenses and more hardware. There is an assumption here I think is that Apple is not developing the tools for these...
