VIDEO EDITING


Strobe effect was first on the list and I got to apply it and exaggerate a little bit as well, but that’s not the point. I thought that this can be made in two ways, either you download some effect from somewhere or it is really hard to make. I was mistaken. Basically all you need to do is to create a black image in my case, you can use whatever you like, place it above the desired section and than fragment it with the razor tool so that you can get those empty sections allowing both the image and the video to play at the same time. This works best if the audio you use on the video has some rhythm, this way the effect is more special. But what disappointed me was the stabiliser option you have in Premiere. One of my clips was ruined because somewhere in the middle I moved a bit too fast making it shaky. I knew that it can be easily fixed with the stabiliser so of course that I applied it. What I didn’t know was that once that it was applied, other options such as speed won’t work anymore and I didn’t understand why. The YouTuber I was watching did it with no problem and it kept me thinking and trying for some time until I realised that he wasn’t actually showing the whole story.

Efectul stroboscopic a fost primul pe lista mea si am reusit sa il aplic dar si sa exagerez putin, dar nu asta este ideea. Am crezut ca poate fi realizat in doua feluri, una prin descarcarea unui efect de pe internet sau a doua varianta: super, super greu. Ghici, m-am inselat. In cazul meu, tot ce trebuie sa faci este sa folosesti sau sa creezi o imagine neagra, poate fi inlocuita dupa bunul plac cu orice altceva, sa o plasezi deasupra sectiunii dorite iar apoi sa fragmentezi utilizand razor tool-ul (lama) pentru a obtine sectiuni goale, astfel redand posibilitatea ca cele doua parti suprapuse sa poata fi redate simultan. Asta functioneaza cel mai bine cand partea audio este ritmata, creeaza un efect mult mai deosebit. Dare ce m-a dezamagit a fost stabilizatorul de imagine oferit de Premiere. Unul dintre clipuri era mai mult sau mai putin ruinat, deoarece undeva pe la mijloc am miscat mult prea brusc mana. Stiam ca se poate corecta greseala cu usurinta folosind stabilizatorul, asa ca l-am aplicat. Ce nu am stiut este ca odata aplicat, alte optiuni sau efecte precum viteza de redare nu se mai pot aplica. Am pierdut ceva timp incercand sa inteleg de ce, pentru ca Youtuber-ul ce il urmaream la momentul respectiv facea asta fara probleme. Intr-un final mi-am dat seama ca nu explica intregul proces asa ca am venit cu propria rezolvare. Intr-o astfel de situatie, cel mai simplu este sa aplici stabilizatorul pe clipul respectiv, il salvezi apoi il incarci si il adaugi in video-ul final.

Currently I recorded the Pride Parade and a couple of scenes in Yaffo, for both I made a video and uploaded everything here on WordPress. But in both cases, guess what, I’ve changed my mind and took them off. Why? Well, even though I’ve spent some time editing I wasn’t happy enough with the final result. So, instead of posting some short clips on different pages I decided to wait until I have all the scenes I want from Jerusalem, Dead Sea, Caesarea and so on, putting all together to make a video that I will eventually enjoy. It makes more sense to have a complex video entitled Israel, right?

In momentul de fata am cadre cu Pride Parade-ul ce a avut loc anul acesta in Tel Aviv si cu Yaffo, puteti citi despre amandoua la sectiunile Travel si Events. Am facut asadar doua clipuri pe care le-am incarcat pe WordPress ca in cele din urma sa le scot, razgandindu-ma. De ce? Ei bine, desi am petrecut ceva timp lucrand la ele, nu am fost suficient de multumita cu rezultatele finale. Asa ca in loc sa postez doua clipuri scurte la 2 categorii diferite, am decis sa le pastrez, sa mai adun si din alte locatii ce urmeaza sa le vizitez, rezultand un clip complez ce prezinta Israel-ul. Are mult mai multa logica asa, nu?

This post is more of an introduction into the actual topic, basically what I want to do is to keep sort of a diary with my evolution in Premiere. I really think that this is useful for me for the long term but as well for the people that want to enjoy a light reading and still learn something of their interests. Tell me, what would you be interested to discover in terms of this software or video editing in general?

Pot spune ca inca simt aceasta postare ca fiind o introducere catre adevaratul subiect. Practic ce urmaresc eu sa fac este sa tin un fel de jurnal online cu evolutia mea in Premiere. Asta inseamna ca o sa explic cum fac anumite clipuri, o sa mentionez trucuri interesante si tot ceea ce invat si merita mentionat. Chiar cred ca asta o sa imi fie de folos atat mie pe termen lung cat si celor in cautare de o citire usoara dar si sa invete ceva ce ii intereseaza. Spune-mi, ce ti-ar placea sa descoperi despre Premiere sau editarea video in general?
