I have 2 things that i needed help on:
1) I always struggle with each update of Premier. I always lose my presets (effects) that are both in "My presets" and My favorites. I don't know why these don't transport with the update, but they are gone again. I did take the time to export my old presets in 8.0, but now in 9.0 I don't see where it gives me the option tyo import anymore? Can someone help?
2) Once I either get my back my presets or create new ones, I struggle wit that perfect transition. Anotherwords, I always seem to drag a prest to my picture and then when it plays, the frame is frozen for a split second, then effect executes, then effect stops. I always have to go in and edit the effect and drag the "button" for rotation or scale to either end of the frame to get my smoothness? So ..
- Is there a way to create a preset and have it know I want the scale or rotation to start at the very beginning and end at the very end?
- And is ther a "best way" to create the movie. Like do I add transitions first and then drag presets, or drag presets and then add transition. It seems if I do either or, my prest gets truncated in the image.
Thanks for any help!!
For the "smooth Transitions," one must set the In & Out Points of the Clips, so that there are adequate Handles, to allow for the Transitions. If one does not have adequate Handles, one of two things will happen, depending on the structure of the Clip:
If there are no more Frames, then the last one will be repeated, as a Freeze Frame.
If there are Frames, but they are in the next "scene," then material that was believed to be removed, will appear in the Transitions.
This ARTICLE will explain Handles in detail. The secret is to move the In and/or Out Point, to allow for adequate Handles.
Unfortunately, in version 9 Adobe removed the option to import presets and titles.
