hey everyone, i just found out about alamDV and its pretty sweet.

well, here is my first question:

In the demo version, plz tell me that i should only be able to use like 5 effects. I hope thats right cuz its a demo, but everything else is there so not sure.


and another one, i watched the 5 sec matrix swirl thing in widescreen, and i figured out easily what they did, used a green screen with guy on his knee, (leg too straight) and took dif angle shots, but my question is this:

its in the widscreen format, withOUT the black bars, how do i get it to be the actual length in premier, using 4:3 ratio.

I dont care if i lose some picture, all ive been doing is simply add the black bars, but i would like to kno how to have it the actual ratio 2:35.1

thankyou

About the matrix, that is the called "the famed matrix shot" and if you search the forums you'll find it wasn't done with green screen. It uses a bunch of different pics and morphing.

The demo should just put the ALAMDV logo on the front but you can download all the plugins.

As for the ratio part though I don't know. Looking forward to finding out too. smile

well, i guess i may have come up with a cheap way to do it without a billion cameras using a green screen

but surely, the guy was on the ground when pics taken, plus an early shot has something screwed up on the right, tree apears out of nowhwere
