3 Easy Steps to Animation in Adobe Premiere Pro

3 Easy Steps to Animation in Adobe Premiere Pro | HDSLR | Scoop.it

The Ken Burns effect, which involves slowly panning or zooming in on still photographs, is one such way to keep a sense of movement going. The following tutorial describes a similar, easy-but-effective tip for applying a simple animation effect that will allow you to bring type, illustration, or photography to life in your video. This effect works especially well with hand-drawn illustrations and elements, but can also lead to nice results when applied to text and photographs.

News Shooter | Rode invisiLav solution for discreet lavalier mic mounting

News Shooter | Rode invisiLav solution for discreet lavalier mic mounting | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Our friends at Rode microphones have just launched the invisiLav – a gadget designed to conceal the company’s lavalier and smartLav microphones under clothing. It is a soft sleeve that holds the mic capsule and absorbs noise and vibration. Two mics can be mounted in the same invisiLav which is useful in some instances where you need a redundant backup – but it will work just fine with only one. The invisiLav can be mounted with pre-cut double sided adhesive pads to the either clothing or skin. I love that the video mentions that you can also mount it with toupee tape.

From Import to Output: An In-Depth Guide to the Adobe Speedgrade CC Workflow « No Film School | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Color grading is one of those practices where an in-depth knowledge of your software is absolutely essential to get the job done right. While DaVinci Resolve is quickly becoming the gold standard for grading applications, Adobe users have an extremely powerful alternative in Speedgrade CC, which now has the ability to roundtrip with Premiere much in the same way that other Adobe programs do. One of our readers, Dave Andrade, sent me an excellent tutorial that walks us through the entire process of grading inside of Speedgrade, from small exposure adjustments to output and everything in between.
