    Unhappy Transitions - Any advice warmly welcome :)

    Hi, I am new to this forum and would like to say hello to everyone and thank anyone who might be able to reply to this thread with any advice for me.

    I have just started using Adobe Premier Pro to edit some footage of a person sat in front of a chroma green screen background. I am trying to clip together different takes of the person talking but the footage jumps about as the subject is in different positions in each clip and it looks rubbish! I have also tried cross-dissolving the clips together and as it is a whole DVD of clips it is really annoying!

    Does anyone know how I can smoothly edit my clips together? Many thanks in advance for your help!

    warm wishes, Act-Now!

    Do you have After Effects? That would be the easiest way, just apply track motion. You might have to reshhot some of your footage, Try the AE method first though

    Software Used:
    TGV Edius 6, TGV ProCoder 3, DVD Lab Pro. 2

    Which part of the video jumps? Is it the talent sitting in front of the greenscreen, the footage behind or the whole lot? Did you shoot the scenes using a tripod, if not hand held camera shots are very noticable when doing compositing work in my experience.

    You could shot a selection of cutaway shots and then add them into the edit like that and cut back to the greenscreen shot every so often!?

    ...just a suggestion

    I was going to suggest cut-aways too.

    Or perhaps do a whiteout or something between shots to make a feature of the jumps

    Default Thanks for suggestions...

    Thanks very much for your responses. I am going to try After Effects as suggested and then shoot some more footage if this is not successful.
    I really appreciate your helpful advice.
