Check out Wrigley Video

You may want to view the free video tutorials at Wrigley Video. It will help you with keyframing.

How many audio tracks can you have at once?

I previously used Windows Movie Maker 2 to edit video and I was annoyed that I could only have two audio tracks, which I used for the orginal audio and music but if I wanted sound f/x I'd have to get rid of the music. How many audio tracks can you use in Premiere Pro?

I believe its unlimited, or perhaps 99. In avid, you are "limited" to 24, but you can always nest and mix down. I think most people would be happy to have at least 8... dual tracks for dialogue, effects, music and ambience at the minimum.

Exporting to Mpeg-2 in Pro 1.5

Question about this topic. When I go into the media encoder and selest mpeg-2 or mpeg-2 DVD there are lots of pre-sets. This is something new to me from the older 6.5 version. How do I read this? How do I know what settings to use? What are you using?

Something I noticed under Mpeg-2 is there is no 720 60i, it says 60p. Not sure if this is a typo or what. When I click on it it does say 60fps not 30. Under the dvd option there isn't a high quality 16:9 option. Why is this? Are two passes better than one?

Some insight on this would be great. thanks.

Mpeg-2 codec

Is there a better mpeg-2 encoder than the one that comes with Premiere? Not saying I don't like it but I'm sure there are some others out there that might give better image quality or compression. Thanks.

Changing the color of a tower

I was wondering if I film a large gray stone tower, is it possible for me to change the color of the tower realisitically to black?

Jim -- I have not needed to do any keyframing in Premiere Pro since my last post. The next ad that will require motion keyframes will be done in 6.5, simply because it's a reedit of an old spot that I originally did in 6.5. But so far I've not had any problems with either 6.5 or Pro.

That last part should certainly be possible. Give it a try!

Drew: with all due respect I don't think you understand what you
are asking. Yes, it can be done with the AVC because it contains
After Effects & Premiere, both who support greenscreen removal
etc. Any program with such a feature can help in that regard
(which I already explained in my first replay and gave you a direct
answer that PPro can do this, After Effects can do it ever better).

However, this is very complicated stuff and takes a lot of practice.

There are no specific tutorial for your questions (crowd replication,
arrows etc.)

But if you did a google search (like I have done) like:

greenscreen OR bluescreen tutorial

You'll find links (including an after effects 4.0 tutorial) like:

http://www.jushhome.com/Bluescreen/Bluescreen.html
http://www.jushhome.com/HiddenPhanto...p/MSPComp.html
http://www.beepworld.de/members33/da.../tutorials.htm
http://www.darkskies.info/key.html
http://www.swfanfilms.com/makingmovies.htm

This should give you an idea what it takes. You can also see the
difference in quality between certain keys (ie, the way the footage
is extracted from the green/bluescreen and then composited into
other footage).

Yes, do a search on the boards with the following:

Procoder CCE Tmpgenc

You'll find lots of posts (specifically by me) with more information
on better encoders. ProCoder seems to be the best at the moment
with CCE & TMPGEnc a close second.

p.s. Premiere uses the MainConcept encoder (Sony Vegas uses
it as well), which is good, but not great.

60i is probably called 30 fps interlaced (I don't have Premiere).
Usually multiple pass encoding (VBR) is better than single pass
(CBR) encoding indeed, the more passes the more efficient it can
encode the video (and the longer the encode will take). I've seen
encodes of 7 or 9 passes (with CCE or TMPGEnc, see your other
thread) that looked very very good.

It might, depends on things (like the background etc.). What you
need to look at is color correction and more specifically a secondary
color corrector. This allows you to isolate a certain color (just the
gray, and if that was in other parts of the picture you could first
mask out just that section (on a duplicate track) and then put the
secondary CC on there) and then shift it in color or intensity etc.

I found out the hard way that Premiere does not have built-in capability to properly edit MPEG files...

Once I got to use a plug-in, everything worked out fine.
