In a video production, it’s often the minor touches that have the most impact. They’re easy to miss, and most viewers probably couldn’t spot or pick them out for you. But they’re the things that can mean the difference between a viewer liking your video or finding it a bit amateur or annoying. In this video, Justin Odisho shows us 5 of his simple editing tricks to give your video that extra bit of production value.
When Adobe switched to subscription-only plan, it made many users angry. However, there are some advantages to this plan, according to photographer Justin Odisho. He shares some of the greatest benefits of paying a monthly subscription for your Adobe apps. One of them is certainly the cost, but according to Justin – there’s more than just the larger affordability.
One of my favourite things to come out of the whole 360° camera thing is tiny planets. They’re getting pretty popular, too, almost to the point of cliché, but I still rather enjoy them. They’re often simple just fun and unusual. Sometimes, though, they can add an intriguing element to a story that would otherwise not exist.
For many compact 360° cameras, mobile apps are the typical solution. But if you want to do something more serious, you usually want to step up to the desktop. In this case, Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017, and Justin Odisho is going to show us how it’s done.
Fundamentally, for me, photography’s about playing with time. Either you’re freezing a moment of it, or you’re capturing a lot of it into a single image. There’s a lot we can do with those two principles, but ultimately you’re creating a still image. This image only shows one of those two things. A moment frozen, or lots of moments mashed together.
With video, we get other options. Obviously, we can shoot in realtime. But, we can also speed it up with timelapse, or grind our scene to a near halt with slow motion. Video also has the advantage of not being just a single image, but many images played back in sequence. In this video, Justin Odisho explores mixing different speeds of footage together to create some rather interesting effects. He even reverses one clip for a very odd result.
Even if you’re trying to be as rock steady as possible with your footage, the camera almost inevitably moves in a way you hadn’t counted on. Sometimes you’ll just shoot it again, but there may be no opportunity for that. You might not even know there’s a problem until you’re back home reviewing the footage.
Sometimes, there’s no choice but to fix it in post. Adobe’s Warp Stabilizer that comes with After Effects and Premiere has always been something of a mixed blessing. It’s a fantastic tool that can often fail miserably. Mostly due to user error. In these two videos, we find out how to fix it.
