“real editing software” noob. i recently got passed my changing file names mistake.... i have an issue where i think when i drag new clips to my time line and/or a sound track i notice i lose some stuff. am i doing something wrong amongst my multiple layers? to be specific, I Alt+A to move my starting point back to build an intro. Then i begin adding tons of new clips and sounds to the layers at the start of the timeline. i noticed a few times the intro was bleeding into the start of the footage (which means at some point it was there) finally done with the intro, i play it from the start to see it live and then i notice the first bit of footage is missing the original first bit. (this also happened in another later spot of the timeline) i have to possibly RE edit a good amount of stuff. how can recover and/or AVOID doing what i’m doing incorrectly? sorry for the read friends just need to be specific to avoid confusion.
Hello! Just found this forum so please go easy if I'm breaking any rules. Please let me know if there's a better place to put this type of post. Often I'm a lone filmmaker so I can make simple mistakes sometimes, it's terrible. This time I didn't have a lens hood and went with the shot anyway and yikes this clip is underexposed. It's for a music video for a friend and I really want the visuals to match how talented my friend is. Here's the underexposed clip: And here's what the rest of the footage looks like: It looks like the underexposed shot is too stylized. I thought it'd help to not have the blacks crushed, but I tried raising the midtones, but it makes it look even more stylized/washed out. I can send any screenshots to show what I mean if it helps. Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this?
First of all, I'm not 100% certain if this is the best place to ask a question like this, but it seemed like the place to begin my witch hunt. I'm currently in the process of opening a small business centered around selling area rugs. However what we're doing is a little different because we aren't going to have any in store product. It's all digital and we're using a projector to display life size rugs in a mock living room setting. All of that aside what I need to accomplish is making sure the color of my projected image matches up with the real life rug itself (which I have samples of to color correct against.) As you may know when the projector projects the image a lot of color is lost so what I'm doing is altering the digital image using adobe lightroom and photoshop and comparing that projected image to the real thing. The projector is a Sony VPL5HZ700L. If you can offer any advice on how to off set this difference in color that would be incredibly invaluable. Thanks, CharlyWho.
