There's a certain text effect I'm trying to learn how to do. It's in a bunch of stuff, but the only example I could find quickly was the Life After People title here (1:07 if the timestamp doesn't work):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQOAhyqPw5k#t=67s

That frenetic flashy defocusing and stuff. Is there a term for that? Is there something I could look up to learn how to do it, or am i gonna have to reverse engineer/hack it and just git gud?

I can definitely-probably piece together my own version of the effect but if there's some proven techniques that would help, it'd save me some time/headache

"Glitch Grunge titles" should get you there in Google. Video copilot just did a tutorial on glitching recently but it's more techy. However there are a million templates and tutorials out there for the more creepy grungy titles like that. Check videohive.net - motionarray.com and various other sites like that.

I think it's called a jitter effect. Se7en popularised the look and they did it optically on film, then cut bits up to play around some more.

Perhaps a glitch plugin might help creating the staccato effect as a base. Or just frame by frame.

No problem let me know if you need anymore help! I've done them from time to time in AE.

Which learning resources would you guys recommend for Mocha Pro? I see it get recommended a lot in this thread, but really want to learn more about what it can do for me and my projects. All I know is about its planar tracking capabilities (which I learned via Mocha Lite for AE) but nothing beyond that, and I just want to be sure that it's worth spending money.

They have an extensive library of their own free videos: https://borisfx.com/videos/?tags=ca...a%20TV&search=d

And Mary Poplin (the esteemed Mocha ambassador) does webinars all the time. Just sign up for their mailing list and you'll get an invite to the next one (and they give away free licenses during these via random draw).

If you need/do any of these you'll need Mocha:

screen replacement
removing/painting out things
lens distortion fix/add (typical VFX workflow is remove lens distortion, do VFX, reapply lens distortion)
tracking loving anything
a much better spline tool than AE. So at the very least you can just use Mocha to create masks better and quicker than native AE.
a million things you won't realize that Mocha can do until you're posed with a problem and realize "poo poo, I probably do at least part of this in Mocha!"

For instance, the other day I was doing some vfx on a commercial that involves a prominent bow hunter who was injured in a wreck years prior and has some nerve damage in his face. He's supposed to wink at camera, but can't because his face only lets him blink now ha.

It was a tight push in on his face and then he is supposed to wink. I tracked (position and scale), then created a clean plate of his eye staying open, then used the insert tool in Mocha to insert the eye staying open (with blended edges). Took it back into AE (this was before it was a plugin and it was just standalone) and, using the masks from Mocha via copy/paste, just made an adjustment layer to add some subtle grain back in.

Hey, hey, you better get back out there. There's a few places on that 'bot that weren't ripped to shreds.

Sorry for what is probably a stupid question to you guys. I'm wanting to transcode 4k60fps h.265 video into something Premiere CC 2015 will like. I've downloaded and used handbrake to convert it into h.264 mp4s but obviously h.264 still isn't optimal for premiere. I'd like to try either ProRes or DNxHD (I'm on windows 7).

What's the goon-approved transcoder? They all look super malware-y when I google around. Cheers.

If you have Premiere can you just download the DNxHD codec and use Adobe Media Encoder to do it?

I can't even pull the video from the h.265 into premiere to start this though.

e: And I'd like to be able to do batch transcodes as well now that I think about it.

Are you on the latest Premiere CC update? I was under the impression that it was Now supported in both Premiere and Adobe Media encoder. But looking online it looks like some people had issues with one of the later update accidentally removing h265 codecs. Maybe something to look into?

Or have you tried just loading up Adobe Media encoder by itself and seeing if you can do it that way? That would also allow batch transcoding. Sorry to keep pushing the Adobe route by want to exhaust all of that since it technically should work before moving on.

After I learned about glitch text I went and learned about tracking! Man, I love the crazy stuff you can do with this software.

Circling back to this, my Premiere does support H265. So if you're on the latest update, it should.


Here's what I did though (having never used H265 yet). I opened AME by itself, put a video in and selected HEVC (h265) as the codec and HD 1080 as the preset for it.

When I hit the play button to start it rendering, it popped up a warning saying that the H265 codec wasn't installed and clicking "ok" would instantly install it and allow transcoding.

I did that and now it works fine! Maybe try something similar?

About a year ago I was working with h.265 in Premiere and it seemed to glitch out a lot. Not sure if it would have / still does the same thing just transcoding, but that's why I use a different program to ingest.

Thanks for all the responses. I only own the older 2015 premiere and not the newest one (trying to decide if I want to subscribe to it vs use other software). They don't support HEVC very well in the older one and I don't really want to encode into h264 because it's still a pig for editing apparantly. I'm hoping to find something external like handbrake that can do my transcoding. Powderific what do you use?

Well, I'm on mac so I did ProRes 422 and like I mentioned above I do it with Kyno. I use Kyno to browse video folders and make sure all my offloads worked right so I have it anyway. Not sure if it's worth it if you don't want to use it for stuff other than transcoding.

Don't know if anyone saw this, but Adobe announced their version of iMovie, called Rush:

https://techcrunch.com/2018/06/19/a...e-video-editor/

I just hope it doesn't turn into a Final Cut X situation where the simplified version leaks into the flagship line.

Better review video style? Worse?

Cool! Text seems waaaay more readable to me this time, and I don't remember if you had them there last time but animating them on the way you do is a nice touch. I like the format a lot, and I'd love even more of the side-by-side/picture-in-picture stuff where we see you shooting at the same time as what you're shooting. I think switching your music up helps a lot, too—I didn't realize it was a 9 minute video until I was 8 minutes in. The pacing feels much better than before.

For your audio, I don't know if you did much post-processing on it, but you can try to get rid of those plosives with a low-cut filter (which you may have done, I can't quite tell). The other option, which I use to avoid have to do reshoots pretty frequently, is just use Audition's spectral paintbrush tools to cut out the lows just on the trouble spots. They're super obvious, and you can get precise enough with it that for stuff like yours nobody would ever be able to tell.

Looking forward to the next one!

Considering Premiere's massive uptick in user-base was from folks jumping ship from FCX because of what Apple did... I doubt they would do that.

Then again... it's Adobe.

edit: Now what I *would* actually get on board with is making Audition/Premiere/After Effects one big program.

That's actually on the roadmap. After effects is actually inside Premiere to use the new graphics engine hooks.

Audition is looking to have smoother integration to allow for editing sound without constant exporting.

The answer is, mate, because I want to do you slowly. There has to be a bit of sport in this for all of us. In the psychological battle stakes, we are stripped down and ready to go. I want to see those ashen-faced performances; I want more of them. I want to be encouraged. I want to see you squirm.

I only have Premiere, not the full suite because for a hobbyist like me it's comically expensive, and it drives me up the loving wall that almost every audio tool is locked away behind Audition. Every tutorial video is like, oh so to do x in Premiere you just right-click, send to Adobe Audition and then..
