    Yeah, like star wars opening text except I don’t need the perspective effect. IOW, text scrolls off the top of the screen instead of scroll off into the distance.

    I did not try handbrake because I found that VLC player, which I already installed, can extract video. It’s not obvious but you need to create a new conversion profile (with audio unchecked) to do this.

    You’re right about mp3 vs wav.

    Once I have the file split into video and wav files, I imported them into premiere and no more conform error.

    Thanks for the info.

    It’s for youtube. I don’t want to upload the full 1920×1080 for several reasons:

    – I want a smaller file size than HD so the upload go faster
    – after rotation, the video no longer has 1920 x 1080 effective resolution so why waste the file size and give false expectation to audience

    1280×720 is probably a more common resolution, but is a little too low so I pick something in the middle. Is there a better choice?

    Jumping ahead of myself is right.

    I put a sample clip of the video here:

    In the first few seconds, the shoe was moving but after that, it is stationery relative to the floor.

    The reason I wanted to use a photoshop layer was because I saw that in a tutorial, and I did not realize the clone stamp in AE can change the cloned content with time. After watching more tutorials, and after trying the photoshop layer solution, it is obvious using the clone stamp in AE is the better solution.

    The tricky part, I found, is that the floor reflects the bright constume, so any static patch would stand out when it should reflect a costume but doesn’t.

    so here’s my updated plan:

    (1) duplicate the video and flip it upside down
    (2) blur the video and lower the brightness/contrast to simulate a reflection
    (3) track the “horizon” y-axis on the source clip and make the horizon in the reflected clip follow
    (4) clone and paint over the shoe using the reflected video
    (5) track the shoe so the cloned blob can follow the shoe as the camera pans and zooms

    That’s the theory. I’m still struggling to execute each step. If it looks like it won’t work, or if there’s a simpler solution, please let me know.

    I’ve looked at a mocha tutorial but hope I can do without it. Thanks for the links, I will look at them.

    Thanks. Using artwork mapping I’m able to accomplish the task.

    However I still have to use photoshop because I don’t know any other way to turn the logo into a single filled color (like a mask) that I can put in AI to trace the outline, which I can then apply 3D bevel to.

    The best way to label DVD is to

    (1) buy an Epson R280 printer (or other R series) that prints DVD/CD directly

    (2) Taiyo Yuden Watershield hub printable DVD-R. They have shinny surface and is water resistant. The resulting label looks like a glossy photo. I put drops of water on the surface and wiped with a tissue. No smear and no color come off, although that area is no longer glossy (tissue scratch marks).

    Canon’s pixima printers can also print DVD, but you have to buy a DVD tray from a foreign country or possibly ebay.
