    Making a Matte Painting with Elements in Motion

    May 1, 2012, 8:18 am
    In the days of early motion picture making the art of "matte painting" was a process of actually painting with oils on a plate glass that was then shot in position in front of a scene on location or in the studio where the film would be exposed by the combined images through the camera's lens, creating an illusion that the actors int...

      After Effects Hidden Gems Weekly: Dashed Lines

      August 31, 2015, 1:45 pm
      Lines: They show up everywhere, from underscores for text to animated elements flowing across the screen to mapping out paths. Many After Effects users employ the woefully under-featured Stroke effect to create these lines. After last week’s Hidden Gems, now you know about its more powerful cousin, the Write-on effect. This week, we present another alternative: Using Shape layers, and taking advantage of the little-known Dashes section to customize the look of your line.

      TS/TRS/TRRS/TRRRS: Combating the misconnection epi

      August 31, 2015, 5:08 am
      There are at least four different varieties of 3.5 mm plugs and jacks, each with its own purpose and application.

Shure is even including a special adapter with some of its latest MOTIV products to combat this misconnection epidemic. In this article, I explain and show them ...

      A return to multitrack USB audio on Mac

      August 30, 2015, 6:30 am
      A few years ago, I had to abandon multitrack USB audio on Mac because it became complex and unreliable after a system upgrade. That just changed! Thanks to Hindenburg Journalist Pro, without any hardware audio mixer, we can now reliably record simultaneously from multiple USB microphones (or analog mics connected via a simple XLR-to-USB preamp/A-to-D box), make a telephone or Skype call without any difficult mix-minus setup, and have each source (Skype plus multiple local mics) on its own in...

      While direct manipulation of UI elements may not favored by NLE power users, sometimes it is faster. One example is is moving a short clip or still using the =/- keys to zoom the timeline during the move.
