first_imgAdd energy to your video editing project with a whip-pan transition in Premiere Pro.If you need to quickly transition from one piece of footage to another than why not try a whip-pan? A whip-pan, or swish-pam, is a quick blurry transition that’s meant to emulate a camera quickly panning from side to side. The result is a very fluid transition that can add energy to your project – but use it in moderation! When overused it can begin to look gimmicky.There are no whip-pan transitions in Premiere but the following video tutorial created by Ann Bens Tutorials demonstrates how how to simulate the effect using built-in tools.1. Overlap your footage in the timelineOverlap your footage by the amount you want the whip pan to be. The video recommends 10 frames.2. Cut the parts that overlapSlice up the overlapping clips on only the parts that overlap.3. Nest the overlapping partsSelect the overlapping clips, right click, and select ‘nest’.4. Set Position position keyframes to simulate a wipeUsing the x position in the effect editor set your keyframes so that the entire transition features one clip moving in and one clip moving out.5. Add a directional blurAdd a directional blur from the effects browser. Set the directional blur to your desired amount along the x-axis.6. Color correct for edge blacknessThe directional blur will make your transition a little more dark than it needs to be. To fix this problem add the ‘Levels’ effect and adjust your black, white, and gamma point until it looks natural.This video was first shared on the Ann BensTutorials Vimeo page. Thanks for sharing!If you don’t want to make the whip-pan yourself there’s a free swish plugin on Toolfarm’s website.Have any tips for creating a swish pan in Premiere?

first_imgVICTORIA — A video circulating the internet showing a cyclist throwing his own feces at the windshield of a car has sparked an investigation by Victoria police.The cyclist and vehicle were involved in a collision at an intersection on Saturday and what happened afterwards was captured on video by Joshua Loftus, a salesman at a car dealership, which he shared on Facebook and Reddit.Loftus told CFAX radio he didn’t see the collision but while he was standing outside to greet customers, he saw the cyclist open the car door.He says the cyclist then defecated and threw his waste at the windshield of the car.Loftus says he also saw the cyclist smash one of the car’s turn signals before getting on his bike and riding away.Const. Matt Rutherford says the driver of the vehicle and bystanders did the right thing by not reacting.“The driver of the vehicle remained in the vehicle, locked her door, closed her windows,” he said. “And several bystanders were able to assist by calling 911, getting pictures of the suspect as well as filming the incident. So people are just encouraged to call us as soon as possible, and we can come and do our jobs.”Police were called by multiple bystanders, who also took pictures and videos.“I thought in my head ‘Well, maybe I should get my camera out, because this might be something,’ ” Loftus added.last_img read more

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, October 18, 2017 – Kingston – Attorneys and accused persons are being strongly urged to take advantage of the Supreme Court’s second installment of the Sentence Reduction Day initiative on Thursday and Friday this week.   On October 19, the programme will be made available at the Home Circuit and Gun Court Division of Kingston and St. Andrew, and on October 20 at the St. Catherine Circuit Court.The Sentence Reduction Day initiative provides an opportunity for accused persons to enter a guilty plea and benefit from a maximum of up to 50 per cent reduction in their sentence, according to the provisions of the Criminal Justice Administration Amendment Act, 2015.In an interview with JIS News, Deputy Registrar with the Criminal Division of the Supreme Court, Tamsyn Bailey, said while an accused person can normally benefit from a reduction in his sentence under the legislation, he would have to make the plea by a specific time in his case.“If they missed the opportunity when they would have been entitled to that 50 per cent discount, on the [Sentence Reduction] days, they have [a second chance].   Even on the day in question, if persons wish to plead guilty, they will be allowed to do so,” she said, adding that the amount of reduction in the sentence will be dependent on the circumstances of the case.“I would implore accused persons, if you are guilty, to avail yourselves of this opportunity,” she urged.The Sentence Reduction Day programme, first done on May 22, is being implemented by the Criminal Case Management Steering Committee, which has as its mandate the implementation of policies and strategies that are geared towards the administration of justice in a timely manner in all the courts.   The initiative was implemented as a measure to reduce the large number of cases pending trial.Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, Andrea Martin-Swaby, cited the value of the programme to the reduction of the backlog.   She said the Home Circuit Court, which serves Kingston and St. Andrew, has in excess of 800 cases awaiting trial, while the St. Catherine Circuit Court Division has in excess of 400 cases.“Entering a plea of guilt has always been viewed by the courts as a sign of remorse, and the court has always, in my experience, been lenient to the sentencing of persons who plead guilty,” she said.Mrs. Martin-Swaby noted that several factors are taken into account when sentencing, and that there are other options outside of prison terms available to the judge, such as a suspended sentence, probation or a monetary fine.Through his attorney, an accused person can indicate his intention to utilise the initiative to the registry of the Home Circuit and Gun Courts or the Criminal Registry of the Supreme Court, and to the clerk of the court at the St. Catherine Parish Court before 10:00 a.m. on the day.The Sentence Reduction Day programme is expected to be eventually rolled out at courts in all parishes.Release: JIS Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
