Premiere is not really the Application to achieve this task properly.
You need to use a COMPOSITER such as After Effects.
I agree with Craig, that AE is the better program to do this compositing. [That ought to make Craig very happy! Started to type "do it in PS," just for him, but decided that I would mess you up.]
PrPro is good with many things, and one can do rudimentary compositing in it, but in this case, if I understand correctly, will cause nothing but problems and a lot of unnecessary hard work. Stay in AE and do your assembly. Then, Export (or use ADL - Adobe Dynamic Link) to get the resultant footage into PrPro for the final editing.
Oh holy crap! That means I have to blow a $1000 dollars on that product? I can't afford it.
I've downloaded teh Trial version of the Premiere Pro CS4, now it's installed and I get this problem...
Premiere Pro Debug Event:
Premiere Pro has encountered an error.
What is this? Will someone tell me what this is? Is there a way to correct this Error?
Now wait a minute! After re-reading your alls post, you all think I'm using Adobe Premiere?
No! I am using Affter Effects CS4.
I will do what I can. I still need your all's help as far as Permiere Pro CS4 is concerened because of the Error.
OK, sorry that I missed which program you were doing the lightsabre work in.
Fist stop I'd make would be the tips in this ARTICLE for setting up your computer for an NLE session.
Next, if you still get that error message, take a look at this ARTICLE on finding clues, as to what is happening with your system and the program, when things go wrong.
I don't see any videos that will teach me how to export, they only taught me how to export 1 video.
So, you guys are not going to teach me how to export these 3 videos together on Adobe After Effects CS4?
You are currently in The Premiere Pro Forum...NOT ...the After Effects Forum
where you need to be to get the help you ask for. (You could export them direct from AEFX you know.)
But ..do you actually have three clips that you exported from After Effects.
If so...put them in a Project with settings that match the clips. Place them on the timeline . Edit as you wish then export them via Adobe Media Encoder.
Thank you both so much. I didn't see the forum anywhere when I came here. I looked hard enough.
I'll get to work on it as soon as possible.
Thank you, Adrian
Yes, sometimes Adobe makes it tough to find some of their fora.
