I have learned editing in Premiere 1.5 by trial and error, and had a great time editing several home projects. I found answers to most of my questions by googling and reading forums like these, but I have a few unanswered. Maybe someone here can help me?
1st question: I used titles generated in Photoshop which I imported into Premiere, ie. text on a transparent background. This looks really sharp, but the edges of curves (like the letter "c") look jagged. When I scroll this text, it seems to "wobble". How can I fix this?
2nd question: I like to change clips on each beat of a song. This is not one continuis pattern (ie. a beat every 0,7 seconds), so I have to mark each beat manually. Until now, I just kinda guessed where the beat was, and then finetuned it by moving my new clip till it looked like it started exactly at the beat. Can this be done more efficiently?
3rd question: I was wondering what you approach is to editing a big, captured MPEG2 file of 30 minutes that contains only 3 minutes worth of good footage, scattered all over in bits of 5 to 10 seconds. I am now cutting the good bits with the razor and moving them to a new video channel, deleting the original video channel when I'm done. Is that the right way to do it?
Thanks in advance for your help!
Edit: added the 3rd question
