Does Premiere Pro CS3 have an inbuilt ability to unify the appearance of a series of stills taken at varying times throughout the day ?
I have taken photos on a fixed focal length, from the same position, all on the same shutter speed priority setting, of a scene as a building in it changed over the course of that day.
I wish to unify their appearance so that in the video I make of them, as I fade from one to the next the building changes but the rest of the scene generally stays constant regards appearance. They were all taken on a digital slr (Canon) in RAW mode.
What is the best way to do so. Is this a job for Premiere or Photoshop ?
Is this best dealt with in the RAW converter Pshop window prior to conversion to tiff ?
A step by step explanation is ideally sought if Premiere, as opposed to 'use the *&^% tool' .
I have asked over at Pshop for a method should it be that program I need to use.
This could be of use for anyone doing timelapse stills.
I will align these in Photoshop as a psd file as layers taking solid features that remained visible throughout as my alignment reference points, then crop to a suitable size to encompass all bearing in mind the proportion required for the video format and resize to a suitable video making resolution then get them into Premiere and fade between them.
I have Windows Pshop CS2 and awaiting installation is CS4. I also have Premiere Pro CS3
This is a perfect job for PPro, however you will need to use PS to batch resize the images before importing them into PPro if they are more than twice the size of your project's frame size.
So, step one is to resize the images.
Step two will be to import the images, not as a numbered sequence of stills.
Step three will be to "automate to sequence", selecting the "apply default transition" option.
See Add clips to a sequence automatically in the PPro Help for further details.
You will also find links to many free tutorials in the PremiereProPedia that will quickly show you how things are done in Premiere Pro.
