Blend modes allow us to add texture to text, change the look of clips, even create unusual and eye-catching effects. Blend modes exist in Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Motion and virtually every other video and graphics editing application. Larry Jordan shows how to use them in this webinar.
Changing clip speed (also called “retiming”) creates dramatic effects – from high-speed time-lapse to extreme slow motion. Final Cut Pro X provides a wide-variety of techniques to change the speed of a clip. During this session, Larry Jordan illustrates dozens of ways to change clip speed.
Video compression makes our media files small enough that they can be stored and viewed on the web. Sounds easy – but it isn't. This webinar covers the basics of compression, then shows how to compress files in Adobe Media Encoder and Apple Compressor.
Green-screen effects, also called “chroma-key effects,” allow us to easily insert a foreground actor into a different background. But, exactly, HOW do you do this? This session starts by showing how to set, light and record green-screen shots in the studio, then creating the finished effects in Apple Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
