Really simple dissolve questions
by David Dean in the Adobe Premiere Pro Forum

Re: FCP is interlacing video when exported!?
by Michael Gissing in the Apple Final Cut Pro Legacy Forum
I suspect it is the AIC codec and sequence settings that is can't render a QT movie using current settings without interlace. Codecs like AIC and DV don't really support progressive modes. Changing the sequence to ProRes gives a better render and output as well as making a true p...

Hey, I only brought up my wrinkly green screen to point out that I could clearly see I wasn't getting a clean key but, rather, my green screen was just turning black. I could still see the folds. That's all I meant, not that it's the fault of the green...

Thank you, Duke, for responding: I know that I shot clean, very controlled green screen. So I know that's not the issue. My issue is some sort of a software issue: 1.) I drop Ultra Key on the clip. 2.) In the effects controls I select the "eyedropper" tool and...

Re: How To illuminate scene with Optical flare

Optical flares is not a light source. It simulates the various reflections, refractions and other artifacts coming from camera lenses, i.e. what different camera lenses add to the look of a light source. You can attach it to a light by selecting "track lights" in the Optical Flares effect options....
