Encoders in NLEs and GPU support http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/16941/encoders-in-nles-and-gpu-support Mon, 15 May 2017 22:12:34 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 16941@/talks/discussions If you look at NLE export and encoders you will see one interesting thing. They live in the past.

Most of them offer average and below average encoders that works slow and at best use some Intel QuickSync abilities.

In real life you have two options:

  • Compact, best possible quality for client distribution - need usage of CPU based x264 and x265 encoders.
  • Youtube, Facebook and such uploads - here you need only fixed block encoding, best is fastest even if it will be larger (as another GPU will reencode it anyway)

Most fun thing is that as I know none of NLEs (may be except CyberLink) has any support of very powerful decoding/encoding blocks of AMD/Nvidia GPUs.


Hardware support by NLEs, export H.264 encoding only

As or May 2017

  • Premiere Pro CC 2017 - NVENC (via plugin), QuickSync
  • CyberLink PowerDirector 15 - NVENC, VCE, QuickSync
  • Corel VideoStudio PRO X10 - NVENC, VCE, QuickSync
  • Movavi Video Editor - NVENC, QuickSync
  • MAGIX Video Pro X8 and X9 - QuickSync
  • Edius 8 - QuickSync
  • Sony Catalyst Edit 2016 - NVENC, QuickSync.
  • TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works - NVENC, CUDA, VCE, QuickSync.

Media Composer First , Free lite editor http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12780/media-composer-first-free-lite-editor Sun, 12 Apr 2015 11:06:59 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 12780@/talks/discussions

The software is designed to be easy to use yet powerful, and a great introduction to professional video editing software. Media Composer | First has all the tools to create a project from start to finish and to deliver a finished movie in professional formats and to popular web outlets, unlike some freeware products that disable critical features like saving or delivering finished projects. It includes many of the same features as industry-standard Media Composer. It also lets you expand those tools and feature sets through additional purchases including plug-ins, options, and additional applications. You’ll also be able to buy stock footage and music. All Media Composer | First projects are stored in the cloud; some projects and cloud storage space are included,, with the opportunity to purchase more. Additionally, users have the opportunity to upgrade to a full version of Media Composer without losing any options, plugins, projects, add-ons etc. that were purchased with Media Composer | First.

Media Composer | First is still in development, and won’t be available until later in 2015. It will also offer limited functionality.

Method for Closed Captions in Premiere Pro http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/17071/method-for-closed-captions-in-premiere-pro Thu, 01 Jun 2017 10:48:07 -0600 Brian_Siano 17071@/talks/discussions I'm working on a filmed play, and I'd love to add closed captions to the project. Since it's a play, I have a script as a Word file, and it shouldn't be difficult to take that text and convert it to a set of closed captions, right? Well, it's work, so here goes.

First of all, captioning requires that each line be associated with a timecode, which determine when the caption appears and disappears. In the past, this would have to be hand-entered, but the latest release of Premiere Pro allows users to move sliders to adjust the timecodes. So the main hurdle here is getting the captions into Premiere Pro, where we can fine-tune the timing.

Still, the transcript we're importing has to have some time codes in it. So we have to convert the script to a format that does. Here's a method that I use that isn't perfect, but it accomplishes a lot. 1) Paste the script into an Excel spreadsheet, so that each line of dialogue is in a separate row. 2) Insert columns before the dialogue. In one column, insert a number sequence (1,2,3, etc.) This will help you preserve the original order if you resort the list for some reason. You will probably have to break some longer stretches of dialogue into several rows, so these numbers come in handy. 3) Use two columns for your timecode, and use the format "hh:mm:ss". This can only handle timecode as far as hours, minutes and seconds. (Don't worry about frames for now.) 4) Take the duration of your video (say, half an hour) and divide it by the number of lines of dialogue. That gives you an average length of time for an average line of dialogue (say, three seconds). You can fill in the Timecode columns with timecodes that increase by three seconds.

Basically, if you're good with spreadsheets, you can use Excel to reconfigure your captions pretty effectively. You can now use this spreadsheet with a word processor to merge this data into a format that works as a captions file. The easiest to use is the *.srt format, which looks like this:

1 00:00:01,1 --> 00:00:06,1 ACT ONE

2 00:00:07,1 --> 00:00:12,1 JULIANA: They’re not even up yet!

3 00:00:13,1 --> 00:00:17,1 BERTA: That’s just what I said, Miss Juliana. Remember how late the boat got in last night. Yes, and once they got home, the young bride had so much to unpack before she would go to bed.

The format is simple. The first timecode, followed by ",1" to signify frames. The two dashes and an arrow. And then the text of the caption, which ends with a double linefeed.

Premiere Pro's Problems - Open versus Closed Captions. Now, you'd think that you could simply Import this file, apply it to your tineline, and adjust those timecode sliders to time the captions right. But that's not correct.

You see, Premiere Pro cannot import SRT files as Closed Captions. It interprets them solely as Open Captions, and you can't change them afterward. (Converting Closed to Open, and Open to Closed, would be a great feature to request.) So you need to take this SRT file, and convert it again to a format that PP imports as Closed Captions. Such as SCC format, which looks like this:

00:00:25;00 942f 942f

Luckily, there is a website (https://www.rev.com/captionconverter) that enables you to upload an SRT file and convert it to SCC.

At that point, you have to place the captions into your project, and then use the sliders to adjust the timecodes.

I know its more taxing on the pc for Long GOP footage but any advice would be great, Id like to know if anyone with the i7 7700k can play the footage back smoothly.

Corel VideoStudio X7 to X10 http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/9804/corel-videostudio-x7-to-x10 Fri, 07 Mar 2014 02:58:49 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 9804@/talks/discussions

PR

Today Corel announced the availability of VideoStudio® Pro X7 and VideoStudio® Ultimate X7. Thanks to performance gains achieved through the addition of 64-bit architecture, the updated creative library and the new touch-friendly instant movie creator, FastFlick™, X7 upholds VideoStudio’s promise to provide the fastest and easiest way to create a broad range of professional quality videos, regardless of editing proficiency.

“VideoStudio has built a reputation for innovation by bringing users of all skill levels cutting-edge tools like 4K support, motion tracking, HTML5 authoring and a wide variety of creative editing tools in one affordable package,” said Greg Wood, Senior Product Manager, Digital Media. “But first and foremost, we strive to provide a program that is fast and easy and that addresses the growing enthusiasm for video in every walk of life, from personal, to sports, to school, to business, and the best way to ensure this is to go straight to the source” added Wood. “VideoStudio X7 was developed based on our extensive customer research. The result – a uniquely powerful, intuitive, fun and relevant editor.”

The enhancements and additions seen in VideoStudio X7 originate from an in-depth study. Corel researchers drew from a wide base of VideoStudio users, learning that performance, speed and even more easy-editing tools were the enhancements users most wanted to see in X7. As a result, VideoStudio introduces the following new features:

New 64-Bit Architecture Brings Dramatic Performance Gains

The new powerful 64-bit architecture removes memory limitations, resulting in dramatic performance gains in a wide variety of scenarios. For example, benchmark testing indicates, rendering HD multitrack projects can be up to 200% faster and rendering 4K projects can be up to 800% faster.

New FastFlick Makes Creating and Sharing Videos a Snap

Creating stylish movies and slideshows is as easy as 1-2-3 with the new FastFlick instant movie maker. Users can launch the touch-friendly app independently of VideoStudio to quickly create their project of choice by simply selecting a template, adding their media, and sharing. Users can upload their videos directly to Facebook, YouTube, Flickr or Vimeo, or they can save them for further editing in VideoStudio.

Updated Content Library Helps Users Explore New Creative Possibilities

VideoStudio X7 includes fresh new templates, frames, and objects as well as two new types of media, backgrounds and color patterns, to give videos a fresh and polished look.

And for special effects enthusiasts, VideoStudio Ultimate X7 includes a powerful, updated-to-64-bit collection of advanced special effects with plug-ins from proDAD, Boris Graffiti and NewBlue, providing over $500 in additional value. With 64-bit power, effects run faster than ever before.

New and Enhanced Tools Streamline the Editing and Sharing Process

User experience was a top priority for VideoStudio X7 development, resulting in more efficient ways to make and share video projects. Key usability enhancements include:

  • Enhanced! Smarter and faster 4K: The Smart Render option now works with UltraHD files resulting in rendering speeds are up to 200% faster than with X6. Users with the latest Intel chips can expect to see performance gains of 170-500% when working with 4K.
  • Enhanced! One-step online sharing: VideoStudio X7 lets users share their videos online in one simple step, no need to leave the program. Users simply select a social media property, choose the settings and post.
  • New! Favorite filters list: Like transitions, filters can now be added to a My Favorites list, saving users’ time when applying specific corrective filters or special effect filters.
  • Enhanced! Batch conversion custom profiles: Custom profiles in Batch Convert allows users to render multiple projects or files at the same time, exactly the way they want.
  • New! Intuitive profile management and customization: Custom profiles are the ideal tool to streamline workflows while still achieving great results. VideoStudio X7 makes it easy for users to create and save custom profiles to match the video properties for each of their cameras. This ensures the best results possible when rendering.
  • Enhanced! Transitions for overlay tracks: By popular request, VideoStudio X7 includes a new transitions category that makes it easier for users to find transitions that work best with their overlay tracks.

Pricing and Availability

VideoStudio Pro X7 and VideoStudio Ultimate X7 are available now in English, German, French, Dutch, Italian, Chinese Traditional and Japanese. Suggested retail pricing of VideoStudio Pro X7 is $79.99 (USD/CAN/AUD) / €69.99/ £59.99, VideoStudio Ultimate X7 is $99.99 (USD/CAN/AUD)/ € 89.99/ £79.99. Upgrade pricing is available.

Adobe Creative Suite 6, CS6 topic http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/2841/adobe-creative-suite-6-cs6-topic Thu, 12 Apr 2012 01:50:27 -0600 sohus 2841@/talks/discussions CS6 Production Premium applications:

  • Adobe Encore CS6
  • Adobe Media Encoder CS6
  • Adobe Story Plus
  • After Effects CS6
  • Audition CS6
  • Photoshop CS6
  • Prelude CS6
  • Premiere Pro CS6
  • Speedgrade CS6

  • An optimized Mercury Playback Engine that is faster than before in software-only mode, and also sports a broader range of choices in graphics cards.

  • Adobe Mercury Transmit gives Adobe I/O hardware partners, such as AJA, Black Magic Design, Bluefish444, Matrox, and MOTU direct access to the Mercury Playback Engine. Using external monitors, you’ll get full-screen playback while maintaining all the real-time performance benefits of the Mercury Playback Engine.
  • Warp Stabilizer and Rolling Shutter Repair, which were previously only in Adobe After Effects.
  • Unlimited cameras in Multicam.
  • New and enhanced editing tools such as adjustment layers very reminiscent of After Effects, trimming directly in the Program Monitor, and a redesigned Audio Mixer. You can now double click to apply effects to selected clips.
  • Three-Way Color Corrector effect, that uses GPU acceleration
  • Adobe Media Encoder is now fully 64 bit software with a much expanded preset list and more efficient batch encoding that makes multiscreen delivery a breeze.

After Effects part

  • Native support for Adobe SpeedGrade .Look files, cineSpace .csp files, and overrange IRIDAS .cube files.
  • Not only is Mocha still there, but you can launch it directly from within After Effects.
  • Global RAM cache. This is a vastly improved frame caching system that allows you to try different options and Undo without a penalty in productivity, as well as render and cache a comp’s work area in the background.
  • Persistent Disk Cache. Previews done in a previous session are saved and immediately available the next time you open a project.
  • New graphics pipeline. With more efficient use of OpenGL, the work environment in After Effects is more highly responsive and smoother. You’ll get faster manipulation of layers with graphical overlays such as masks, motion tracker points, and motion paths. Depending on the hardware, functions may be speeded by anywhere from 1.5 to 16 times!
  • Intelligent 3D Camera Tracker effect.
  • Ray-traced 3D rending engine giving you the capability to quickly design fully ray-traced geometric text and shape layers in 3D space. Pair this engine with, say an nVidia Quadro 2000, and you’ll see over 10 times the performance over CPU-only rendering by a stock Intel i7 3960X processor!

Kdenlive topic http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/3429/kdenlive-topic Thu, 31 May 2012 17:02:57 -0600 karl 3429@/talks/discussions Good news from the developers of the free video editing software "kdenlive":

  • Their fund raising campaign for one developer to devote two full man months on some long desired re-factoring succeeded - and quickly!

  • kdenlive 0.9.2 was just released, addressing some regressions from the 10 days old 0.9 release, which introduced numerous interesting features (see http://kdenlive.org/discover/0.9 for a list).

Two new features I found especially notable:

  • The availability of a second video stabilizing filter (which was ported from "transcode"), which offers numerous parametrization options (that the first stabilizer, "vstab" is somewhat lacking).

  • Automatic synchronization of video tracks taken from different cameras at the same time (by using the audio track similarities).

Alternatives to Prores and a video player recommendation for Windows http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/16298/alternatives-to-prores-and-a-video-player-recommendation-for-windows Sat, 07 Jan 2017 07:33:24 -0700 soulofrev2 16298@/talks/discussions Hi

I just switched to a Windows laptop from being an a Mac and I was hoping I could ask a few questions.

Firstly what the Prores alternatives on windows? I know there is Cineform and DNXHR, though there are so many diffrent choices and flavors it is hard to know which one to choose. My intermediate and archive codecs in the past have been prores 4444 and prores 4444xq. What are similar choices on Windows and also what are the editors and graders using?? What is the standard most people use on windows?

Also can anyone recomend a good video player to be able to check my footage on? Something I can go back and forward frame by frame.

Thanks

Windows scaling is effecting my timeline scrolling and my full screen playback. http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/16302/windows-scaling-is-effecting-my-timeline-scrolling-and-my-full-screen-playback. Sun, 08 Jan 2017 11:23:36 -0700 soulofrev2 16302@/talks/discussions Hi

I just started using a windows machine after using a mac for a long time.

I have been having this weird scrolling issue where scrolling up and down on the timeline is intermittent.

Sometimes i can use the mouse scroll wheel to go up and down, sometimes i cant.

My display scaling was set to 150. When I set it to 100 percent (so native for the high res display) then restarted the computer, the problem went away. Everything is now scrolling fine.

Also if I went to display options, to use my monitor for full screen playback, it didnt fill the whole screen. Only when set my scaling to 100 percent and restarting, did it become full screen.

There seems to be a scaling issue with Premiere.

Does anyone else have this issue?

It would be nice not to have to have scaling so low for day to day use.

Mouse vs Keyboard Shortcuts vs Tablets - How do you like to video edit? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/16048/mouse-vs-keyboard-shortcuts-vs-tablets-how-do-you-like-to-video-edit Tue, 15 Nov 2016 03:39:34 -0700 matt_gh2 16048@/talks/discussions Thought I'd get everyone's opinion on what you like when video editing. I've always used a mouse, but some like keyboard shortcuts, and I've even heard that some people like tablets, like the Wacom tablet. I'm curious what people like for feeling of control, ease of creativity, speed, and other factors.

FCPX gone mad http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15908/fcpx-gone-mad Wed, 19 Oct 2016 06:57:19 -0600 belfryman 15908@/talks/discussions FCPX has been crashing the last few days - ever since I decided to get safe and buy raid storage and back up properly and all that. Now it has got really arsey, I can't reopen it, it gets stuck on restoring windows, I don't know if the fact that i updated (stupid) a couple of days to OSierra has anything to do with it. I've trashed the 3 preference files and dumped FCPX and reinstalled twice and I still get the same thing, any thoughts gratefully received.

Lightworks topic http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/4804/lightworks-topic Wed, 03 Oct 2012 18:49:02 -0600 goanna 4804@/talks/discussions

Our solution was to avoid rewriting the Windows-specific code at all (it was, after all, tried, tested and optimized). Instead, we decided to move it to a new operating-system dependent layer which we engineered to have an OS independent interface.

Once this was complete, we were then able to begin work on a Linux implementation of that same layer. In essence, the Lightworks code is now split in two - the OS-independent code (eg. editing, play-engine, etc) which uses the OS-dependent code (eg. file access, threading, etc).

The OS independent code accounts for about 97% of the total codebase. The bulk of the work in porting to Linux was actually in re-engineering the existing code, not in writing the Linux-specific layer.

Linux of course doesn't have [Windows'] Direct3D, so we had to reimplement all the Linux GPU specific code using OpenGL.

This development has been long-awaited. Once again, risk-averse developers are showing us how OSes, once the mainstay of IT revenue, are losing relevance.

What's next - Lightworks for Android? -only a few lines of code away.

Optimal Mac Settings for Film Edit - Performanc and Exporting http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15798/optimal-mac-settings-for-film-edit-performanc-and-exporting Mon, 26 Sep 2016 13:11:15 -0600 matt_gh2 15798@/talks/discussions Hey guys,

Thought I'd get your advice and opinions on setting up a new mac for feature film editing. I've been on a Windows machine for some time now, and went through the process of determining the best settings for performance, and the best settings for export. My goal is optimal quality, particularly with export quality. So do you guys have preferred settings you use on your macs for the best editing and exporting results? Will be using FCP 7, FCP X, After Effects, Audition. Also any thoughts on antivirus - needed or not, conflicts with FCP or not?

Thanks, Matt

Best way to edit 4K footage to HD output Premiere Pro iMac http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15728/best-way-to-edit-4k-footage-to-hd-output-premiere-pro-imac Wed, 14 Sep 2016 16:33:10 -0600 webarchitect 15728@/talks/discussions Greetings, and thanks to all who contribute here. I learn something almost daily. While I've read posts in several places on this topic, I've not found consensus, but have run into issues. Here's the scenario:

I'm shooting 4K with the GH4 for all the benefits including punch in, pans, etc. Final output is 1080p. Occasionally I'll mix in some HD footage.

The last project I did was 6.5 mins, but much to my surprise was really dragging down my computer. I wonder if some of you with more experience can suggest a better workflow. I'm hoping to avoid buying a new computer for another year, but will do what I must when I can. Here's what I'm working with:

Premiere Pro CC iMac (Retina 5K, 27 inch, Late 2014) 3.5 GHz Intel Core i5 16 GB 1600 MGz DDR3 AMD Radeon R9 M290X 2048 MB

To create a sequence, I've simply dragged the the first 4k clip to the timeline and let Premiere handle the settings accordingly. I edit, then export as HD.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts and advice!
