Also make sure that there is extra footage at the end of first shot and beginning of second shot when using crossfade. Otherwise Premiere will be forced to repeat some footage, and this can look like flicker.

In short: Set the out point in first shot at least a second before the shot ends, and the in point in second shot at least a second into the shot.

That way Premiere will have 2 seconds of overlap to work with.

Newbie question re: Premiere Flicker
You did specifically mention cross dissolve so this probably isn't your problem but some months back I saw this result when using the additive dissolve, one above cross (in P6). I gave up using it for that reason.

automatic scene detection in Premiere 6.5?
It appears that Premiere 6.5 does NOT have automatic scene detection for capturing. Is that right?

Is there a plugin available that would add that function?


Hans van Turnhout March 8th, 2003 05:26 PM

Premiere does not gave automatic scene detection. There is a stand-alone capture program called Scenalyser (www.scenalyser.com) that captures and splits into scenes. There used to be a freeware version for just splitting captured files but I couldn't find that on the Scenalyser page anymore. You can download a demo of Scenalyser and see if you like it.

Thanks, Hans.

In addition to Premiere 6.5, I have Pinnacle Studio 8.0 which does have automatic scene detection. I suppose I could capture in Studio then import the clips into Premiere for editing. Do you know any reason why that wouldn't work?

Alex Taylor March 8th, 2003 06:56 PM

That might work. Both programs capture in AVI but I'd be willing to guess Pinnacle captures at a lower resolution. You could still import the clips into Premiere but they would be of lesser quality if this is true.

If you can change any settings in Pinnacle, get them as close as possible to Premiere's capture settings (720x480 resolution, 48kHz audio, etc) and you will have no problem at all.

Adobe Premiere User Forums
Is anyone aware of any Adobe Premiere user forums (other than this one) where I may go and pose questions on how to do a particular effect?

Thanks a bunch

Adobe Premiere 6.5 ability questions
Hi Everyone,

I am still editing on 6.0...and I have a question about 6.5.

You might be able to do this in 6.0, and tell me if you can:

I want to add 2 different video clips running as smaller windows on the frame...

Also can you scale in size the video clips??

Or can you put in a picture and scale in size the image an dmove it around?


Ed Smith March 14th, 2003 06:13 AM

If I think what you are trying to do is basically have multiple images on the same screen?

The answer is yes!!! and you don't need 6.5

All you need to do is place each video on a seperate video layer i.e 1a, 2, 3 etc (to add more video tracks, on the time line there is a little black arrow pointing to the right >, then select add video track)

Then apply a transform filter (found in the video effects folder) to each video. You can then effect its size, postion etc.

Then adjust the parameters.

Have a play around, and see how you go.

All the best,

Ed Smith

You can read more about Scenalyzer at www.scenalyzer.com.

There is also a free version available that splits scenes up AFTER
you've capture them (this is what I use).

Download that here
