    Re: Logitech, I Got Me A Logitech!!!

    Loved the video on the freeze frame effect!  I gave you some love on YT also.  I immediately made a video utilizing your technique.  It's a good idea to NOT use any automatic features on your camera when doing this.  Use manual everything (white balance, color, etc).  You can see the "seems" in this video as a direct result of the automatic white balance on my sony cx560.  You might need to watch for clouds too if your shooting near windows or outdoors. It still came out great though!

    Re: Logitech, I Got Me A Logitech!!!

    LOVED IT! You did a great job using the time freeze effect in that video. It suited the plot of the commercial and looked great. BTW, Declic Video wants to feature the time freeze effect on their website and they also want to include your video as an example of what someone did after using the effect. Do you mind if they post your video on their site alongside my tutorial?

    Please reply and let me know either way.

    Re: You Picked The Red Pill...You Are No Longer Blinded...You Can See The Matrix.

    Hey Vigor2001,

    Just wanted to drop in and say thanks for all the great effect videos on youtube.

    I bought Avid Studio a little over a month ago for a few school projects and have been learning a lot of tricks by watching your tutorials, in fact I have tried to reproduce a few...

    Here are a few demos that I came up with after watching your videos:

    Matrix Bullet Dodge Effect

    Clone Games

    Kamehameha Effect

    Keep up the good work ASP!

    Re: You Picked The Red Pill...You Are No Longer Blinded...You Can See The Matrix.

    Hey Nightmarcher, great job on the effects. I'm glad I was able to help you out. You videos look great. The Kamehameha effect was nice. I have an energy ball effect that I am planning on doing myself. It is a little different than yours but I still like how yours tunred out. Keep up the great work!

    Converting Actions Essentials Files

    Quicktime or .mov files come in multiple codecs or compression formats. Only .mov files with DV, MJPEG, MPEG-4, H.264 codecs work in Studio. In order to get all .mov files to work with Studio you must know how to convert them to a compatible codec. This video will teach you how to convert your Action Essentials files and any .mov to a compatible format for use in Pinnacle Studio.

    Converting Action Essentials Files

  •  04-26-2012, 12:15 528645 in reply to 528588

    Re: Converting Actions Essentials Files

    Hopefully, Avid will add more codecs so we won't have to resort to spending more money. People should watch this video to make sure that Avid Studio will work with the .mov format they have.
  •  04-26-2012, 12:46 528651 in reply to 528645

    Re: Converting Actions Essentials Files

    Not disagreeing with you Tony, but it is possible to do some of these conversions without spending money. Mediacoder is worth a look.
  •  04-26-2012, 13:15 528656 in reply to 528651

    Re: Converting Actions Essentials Files

    Free is always good. Better would be to have more codecs in the program! I am 'fortunate' to not have any of those issues. My 2 cameras import just fine.
  •  04-28-2012, 10:01 528900 in reply to 528651

    Re: Converting Actions Essentials Files

    Free is awesome, but not always better. Price is important in todays economy but, if price is all that matters then the Microsoft Zune would have put the iPod out of business...not the other way around. LOL! :-)

    I know that most people want to use free solutions and media encoder is a fantastic option. I provide solutions that the newbie and the seasoned video editor can understand and for this purpose I think the solution I offered works well. The learning curve for some with media encoder is much higher especially when creating custom files (which have better quality than the presets). QuickTime Pro is easy to use and it allows the user to keep the file as a .mov. So I guess it all depends on who you talk to. Free and learn, or $29.99 and use? It is all up to individual preferences and there is always more than one way to skin a cat.

    When I skin a cat I prefer not to have to pay Apple for the privilege Wink
  •  04-30-2012, 20:40 529234 in reply to 528901

    Re: Converting Actions Essentials Files

    I hear you Jeff. If you know "how" to skin the cat and it is "easy" to do free is better. Everyone has their own preference.

    Unfortunately everyone doesn't have the same level of knowledge or experience and some prefer to pay for some things to get them done. Everyone can make videos/films for free with Windows Movie Maker but some people prefer to pay for Avid Studio (and other Avid products) because the user interface and other features make editing easier and they have the knowledge and experience to use it. It is all about the individual, their preference, and their experience level.

    Re: Converting Actions Essentials Files

    No argument with that Smile

    The main reason for specifying "free" is because of the people who complain that they shouldn't have to pay extra to convert something that AvSo should, in their opinion, be able to handle anyway, and they have paid for AvSo. I'm of the opinion that Avid can't possible keep up with every obscure video and audio format that a 3rd party decides to implement, some of which are never intended to be edited anyway. There are some formats that need to be added to the compatible list, though AVCHD 2, for example.

  •  05-01-2012, 21:47 529437 in reply to 529264

    Re: Converting Actions Essentials Files

    No argument with that Jeff! Big Smile

    I defintely understand your point of view and appreciate your comments.

    Most consumers buy video editing programs without doing the proper amount of research or even reading the box to check the system requirements. Even though I don't work for Avid I find myself answering complaints about AvSo not working with files. AvSo users complain to me that they paid for a program that doesn't work when they haven't done due diligence to ensure that the program will work with their computer, file formats, etc. I can understand the complaints about bugs (even though I have yet to experience any of them), but complaints about things that the buyer can avoid are uneccessary. So yes, grab media encoder if you want a free solution and check out Xilisoft (works great on all files and has a codec converter) or QuickTime Pro if you don't mind giving up the loot. Big Smile
