Learn how to create an automated droplet when you can create video effects using Photoshop!

Photoshop_Droplet_Tutorial.pngYou can also use Photoshop to de-interlace video. I recently encountered a situation where I had to de-interlace hundreds of video files that were shot in 1080i.

Here's a great tutorial on how to create a video watermark to protect your video content.

This tutorial is a bit unusual, because it was done by using Photoshop CC for windows on a Mac.  I record and edit all my tutorials in a software product called Screenflow which only runs an Mac OS X.  So, I decided to see if I could run Windows on a MAC and still use Screenflow to create this tutorial.

play_watermark_tutorial.pngIn this short video tutorial, you will learn the following:

  • Using a Screenshot to capture content to produce your video watermark
  • Configuring Google Images to display only high resolution image files
  • Creating a video watermark using Photoshop
  • Importing your watermark into your favorite video editing software

ScreenFlow.pngAs a Quick Side Note:  I teach an amazing hands-on class for learning ScreenFlow. Training options include 'online, on-site, or in a classroom'. If you're interested in creating the absolute best training videos, please contact me.

Also, if you are a corporate video producer / editor, check out a service called VideoBlocks.  It's invaluable for those in need of stock footage, AE templates, audio loops, and sound effects.  Their yearly pricing is a good deal considering the quality of footage and amount of content available.  They also offer a free trial!

Professional video editors should be aware of a cardinal rule.  Do not upgrade your operating system unless you are 100% sure your video editing software is compatible with it. 

This is particularly true with products such as Avid Media Composer, and Pro Tools.  Also, pay attention to the compatibility of 3rd party software and plug-ins.  Just because your editing software may be compatible with a new OS, some of your software plug-ins may not be.

This brings me to my next point.  If you purchase a brand new computer from Apple,  it will probably have the most recent operating system installed on it. This means if your version of video editing software doesn't work on the latest version of Mac OS 'Yosemite', you won't be able to run your software.

Please note: The hardware in a brand new Mac may prevent you from downgrading beyond the previous operating system.  So currently, that brand new Mac you just bought may only allow you to downgrade to Mavericks, and not Mountain Lion.

Fortunately, there is a way to re-download a copy of Mavericks.  You can even choose to partition your hard-drive so you can keep the Yosemite OS, along with Mavericks.  You can then boot between them.

To  perform a downgrade to Mavericks (Mac OS X 10.9) from Yosemite (10.10) you will need the following:

  • *A copy of the Mavericks installer (you can find this under the purchases tab within the App store)
  • A thumb drive or external drive that can be re-formatted
  • Some patience

Okay, ready?  Here are the steps.  You may want to print the steps out.

Learn how to create a video montage edited to the beat of music when using Adobe Premiere.

*The Replace With Clip From Source Monitor, Match Frame is an esoteric feature in Adobe Premiere CC 2014, but it will save you huge amounts of time in situations like matching beats.  If you're not familiar with this function, this short tutorial will be extremely helpful in improving your editing efficiency.

The key skills that you will learn in this tutorial are:

  • Adding edit points on the fly while playing a sequence
  • Using the replace edit function to match a specific frame
  • Adding multiple transitions all at the same time
