If you’ve ever used third-party transitions in Premiere Pro, then you know that they don’t work like the built-in transitions and can be a bit cumbersome. You can read a workflow on working with third-party transitions from Oliver Peters here. [click to continue…]
GoPro’s Tyler Johnson put together this cool array of 24 GoPro HERO 3 cameras, which provides a “budget” alternative to the high-end Matrix bullet time effect.
You can see the handheld array in the above frame grab. I think Tyler did a solid job of blending the frames together in post for the smooth bullet time effect.
We’ve seen a lot of different uses for Content-Aware Fill since it was initially introduced as a feature of Photoshop. There have been plenty of failures and successes for the feature. All that I have seen have been in still images.
The above video, however, puts Content-Aware Fill to the test on moving images for an interesting (if, less than perfect) take on the feature.
After watching the video for a few seconds though, I started thinking about the information that is available frame to frame and how Content-Aware Fill could leverage this additional info for application in video. It is already possible to automate this process in Photoshop for a static scene with Image Stacks – like so.
So where is our Content-Aware Fill for video Adobe? Use those other frames to make this work.

In one of the coolest POV videos around, YouTube user Srachi strapped a GoPro camera to the back of an eagle for some stunning footage that literally provides a bird’s-eye view. Check it out below. [click to continue…]
Oh man, this is just painful to watch. I feel bad for the bride and groom, who are clearly caught off guard by the exchanged.
Muffled in the background, you can hear the photographer ask them “Do you want me to leave?” After the bride responds, the photographer and videographer move out.
Poor form on the officiant for sure. However, the photographer and videographer could have avoided being the center of attention (regardless of whether they were in the right) by taking two minutes to speak with the officiant beforehand – an exchange that should happen before any wedding ceremony.

This is a sad commentary on mobile technology today.
We are all so consumed by what is going on in our circles that somewhere on the path to the most amazing iPhone or Android smartphone we forgot to enjoy real-life moments. And it rings perfrectly true in this short film (above) written by Charlene deGuzman.
