    PS21 Ult and Google Earth Pro

    Hi.

    Using Google Earth Pro, it is possible to create a video of "flying" from point A to Point B. I've done this successfully creating a VLC video which plays correctly. I've also "massaged" that video through Handbrake. When I import either of these VLC videos into the timeline for editing with "regular" clips, I cannot seem to be able to edit it. The clip will not play even though I have left it for some time in the belief that it is (albeit slowly) rendering. (There is no evidence of rendering with the yellow bar to green bar transition.) However, when I export, the resulting video does play correctly but because it's not edited as desired, it's essentially useless.

    Please suggest, if you can, a solution to this problem. In other words, how can I edit the Google Earth video to match with "regular" clips in the time line? There is a music clip associated with the project which dictates what editing is desired.

    Thanks.

    Is there any way to upload a sample to the cloud? A "raw" sample from google earth.

    Thanks Tony.  Would YouTube be ok?

    No, not a youtube video. Do a google earth video (anything), save it and upload that to the cloud to see what it actually is and if PS21 can handle it.

    Re: PS21 Ult and Google Earth Pro

    Put a hold on that question for the moment Tony. I used Google Earth Pro "Movie Maker" to generate the VLC video. I tired to import the "raw" file into PS, but it shows up in "green" in the import window. I've "massaged" it through Handbrake and can import it and, at the moment, successfully play for editing purposes. I'll let you know the outcome.

     

    Thanks.

    What is a "VLC" video ?

    Re: PS21 Ult and Google Earth Pro

    Hi Tony,

    For a 35 sec Google Earth Pro Movie Maker video massaged through Handbrake and Imported on to the time line of PS 21 Ult, it took approx 2 - 2.5 hours to render before any kind of editing could be done. The entire video was approx 180s long. There was no Yellow bar converting to Green bar converting to default bar. If the clip was edited/moved in any way, there was a considerable time delay before any further editing could be done.

    With a lot of patience, I managed to get a video somewhat to a desired level of satisfaction.

    A "VLC video" should really read a "video playable by VLC Media Player".

    Re: PS21 Ult and Google Earth Pro

    Without a sample of the google movie, it's hard to say where the bottleneck is. How large are the files? 

    What does MediaInfo say about the file's properties?

    Re: PS21 Ult and Google Earth Pro

    Not so much the Handbrake MediaInfo, but the original source. 

    And as I wrote, maybe a sample for the raw video? It can be anything.

    I had to remake the non-Handbrake version and it's here: https://youtu.be/f927O5CHKSw

    Re: PS21 Ult and Google Earth Pro

    So you can use the file? I watched it. Where was the final destination?

    Re: PS21 Ult and Google Earth Pro

    Hi Tony,

     

    You can watch the file. However, it's not possible to import it into Studio 21 UNLESS it is "massaged" using Handbrake and even then, editing in Studio 21 can only happen as described above. The destination is Las Vegas!

    Re: PS21 Ult and Google Earth Pro

    Thanks! 

    I see I do have Google Earth Pro on my computer. I haven't used it ever. I'll give it a shot and report back.

    Darcon:
    ...However, it's not possible to import it into Studio 21 UNLESS it is "massaged" using Handbrake and even then, editing in Studio 21 can only happen as described above...

    Couple of thoughts:

    The file exported by Google Earth Pro is in a Quicktime format; I can't remember whether Studio 21 needs the Quicktime "core" components to be installed in order to handle such files? Later versions do have a Quicktime library included so can cope with some kinds of .MOV files.

    The file exported by HandBrake has an unusual frame size (probably because on HandBrake's "Dimensions" tab, automatic cropping is enabled. So Studio is most likely continually having to resize the source video as you preview/edit it. Try setting the cropping to manual/custom and reducing the amount of cropping to zero in all four directions (so you do end up with an output file having a standard frame size of 1920x1080. Another option if you can put up with the lower resolution is to have HandBrake resize the video to 1280x720 and edit with that.

    What have you got set for hardware acceleration settings in Studio's control panel? I'm fairly sure the Xeon CPUs don't have any H.264 hardware acceleration; but if you've currently got it set as 'None' you could try 'Cuda' (counter-intuitive as it's an AMD GPU) - but it might allow Studio to find and use any H.264 playback optimisation hardware in the graphic card (with 'None' it's completely switched off)).

    Regards,
    Richard

    Re: PS21 Ult and Google Earth Pro

    Hardware acceleration is set ti "None". I'll try CUDA later as you have suggested.

     

    Thanks.
