How to End Audio Tracks in Premiere Pro

first_imgHere are four simple solutions for fading out audio while working in Premiere Pro.Top image via Shutterstock.If you’re just getting into editing or aren’t accustomed to working with audio, transitioning and cutting can be tricky. Distinguishing when to fade out or make a hard cut is up to you, but knowing how to make the transition will benefit all of your future projects. Let’s take a look at some different ways to end a track.Fade OutHard audio cuts are rare. More than likely, if you’re working on corporate video, a documentary, or your own content, you’ll find that, at some point, you’ll need to fade to black or simply dissolve into the next scene. Doing this will require your audio to follow suit and fade out. Fading out your audio is a quick little audio transition that you can apply to the end of your clip. Constant power and exponential fade will allow you to make the transition as gradual as you’d like.Hard Cut on BeatOne of the recent trends to hit the silver screen involves trailers with audio cut to sync with the music. Take this Kong: Skull Island trailer, for example. Cutting on the beat can ramp up the pace of your edit and thematically close your scene. If you’re dealing with music, cutting on the beat can be simple, even if the song doesn’t quite reach the point you want it to during playback — or if it isn’t as long as you’d hoped. This process is simple with Adobe Audition’s Remixing feature. Cutting to the beat depends on knowing how the software reads audio files in your timeline and how you can manipulate them with your video.ReverbEnding a track with reverb requires a few more steps, but is is still straightforward. Find the beat where you want the reverb to begin, cut it, isolate the clip, then nest it. This will open the clip in a new sequence. Then, you’ll add black video to the new sequence, which will allow you to extend the audio clip for as long as you want the reverb to last. Finally, apply the reverb and drag out the echo. (The preceding tutorial also covers the effect in Avid and Final Cut Pro X.)KeyframingThe problem with using default audio transitions is the lack of control over the effects. With keyframing, you can pinpoint the exact time and location of your transition. This customization will make your edit more precise and rewarding for your audience.Know of any other ways to end audio tracks in Premiere Pro? Share in the comments below.last_img read more

U.P. private varsities to be governed by umbrella act

first_imgThose looking to set up private universities in Uttar Pradesh will be required to submit an undertaking that the university will not get involved in “anti-national activities of any sort”.The varsities would also have to submit that they would not allow such activities to take place on their premises or in the name of the university.Such acts will be considered a violation of the conditions provided for the setting up of the universities and would authorise the State government to take action according to the relevant legal provisions.The above provisions are part of the conditions laid down by the Uttar Pradesh Private Universities Ordinance, 2019 that was approved by Yogi Adityanath’s Cabinet on Tuesday.As per a government press note, national integration, secularism, social harmony, international goodwill, moral building and “desh bhakti” (patriotism) have been included among the objectives of universities under the UPPUO.With the UPPOU, all private universities in U.P., including the 27 existing ones, would come under an umbrella act. Currently, the private universities in the State have been set up and are running through separate acts and sanctions.However, the umbrella act would override all the acts as a “controlling body” to monitor and regulate the private varsities, said Sidharth Nath Singh, a Cabinet Minister. The new system would look to bring uniformity to the fee structure, quality of education, implementation of the UGC guidelines and would attempt to “introduce the best practices of international universities,” said Mr. Singh.Permanent jobAmong the proposals are a minimum of 75% of teachers appointed to the private universities would be permanent and not contractual and their quality would be monitored online, he said.A university in a city would need to have a minimum space of 20 acres while in rural areas they would need over 50 acres. The existing 27 universities have one year to implement the new changes.last_img read more

Scindia meets Kamal Nath, discusses flood situation

first_imgAmid the turf war among the various factions of the Congress to helm the Madhya Pradesh unit, party leader Jyotiraditya Scindia met Chief Minister Kamal Nath here on Tuesday. However, he discussed the flood situation in the State.Mr. Scindia apprised Mr. Nath on the situation including in his political bastion Gwalior and exhorted him to resurvey the ravaged areas so that appropriate compensation could be given to the affected. “Mr. Nath has agreed to survey areas which have not been surveyed yet, and resurvey other areas after the rains,” he said. “There was no discussion with Mr. Nath on the post of the next State party chief. Instead, we took up only people’s issues,” he told reporters. Mr. Nath holds the post of the president of the State unit. Ministers Govind Singh Rajput and Mahendra Singh Sisodia, three MLAs and State spokesman Pankaj Chaturvedi accompanied Mr. Scindia. Mr. Nath said excess rain had caused a damage of more than ₹10,000 crore. “Continuing rain and floods in several areas are making it difficult to conduct surveys there. Despite this, survey of damage to crops and houses had begun in several districts,” he said. Due to flood in the Chambal river, 6,300 residents of 33 villages in the submergence area of Sheopur district were affected. The Army and the district administration were shifting them to relief camps, said a statement from the Chief Minister’s office. So far, more than 220 people had died in rain-related incidents this season and more than 45,000 people had been shifted to relief camps from flood-hit areas.last_img read more

Tri-colour hoisted at Games Village

first_imgThe Indian tri-colour was hoisted at the picturesque Asian Games Village on Thursday and as the national anthem was rendered, athletes and officials stood up with pride in their hearts. When one is at home and hears the national anthem, people do stand up. But the mood changes altogether abroad, what with so much at stake in a mega event.This was a day when differences didn’t seem to matter as Indian Olympic Association secretary general Randhir Singh and president Suresh Kalmadi were sitting close to each other.To say that differences exist between these two sports officials would be stating the obvious. However, away from home, where Randhir also wears the hat of Olympic Council of Asia secretary general, he was trying not to be critical.”We are hopeful that India will do well at the Asian Games. Considering our results at the Commonwealth Games and previous editions of the Asiad, we will do better. Recently, US president Barack Obama stated that India is now growing to be a superpower. I see that happening in the sphere of sports as well,” he said.Randhir has more things to worry about in coming days as the OCA will be taking note of countries which want to bid for the 2019 Asian Games. “On Friday and Saturday, we have the OCA executive board and the general body meeting. India will put its claim forward,” he said. Even though the better known athletes from the shooting fraternity like Gagan Narang, Abhinav Bindra, Manavjit Sandhu and Ronjan Sondhi were not present at the ceremony, the other athletes mingled freely.advertisementSaina Nehwal and Sania Mirza were also not there but talk had already veered around to who will be the flag-bearer on Friday at the opening ceremony in case Gagan Narang skipped it.As the shooting competitions start just a day later and Narang will be competing in the air rifle event, there is speculation that he would perhaps like to rest on Friday and miss the opening ceremony. Narang was himself not available for comment on Thursday.However, given the hype over who will be the flagbearer at an Asian Games, it is expected Narang will be there.Randhir said that it was not a big issue. “At the Moscow Olympics, I was named the flag-bearer but had to skip it as I had a competition soon. As of now, it will be Saina Nehwal who will be the alternate to Narang,” he said.However, Kalmadi had a different take on the subject and he said: “Gagan would not skip the opening.”Amidst all this speculation, TV channels started asking MC Mary Kom if she would like to be the flag bearer! She, however, did not want to say anything.last_img read more

Utah author says woman plagiarized her Christian romance novel added sex scenes

SALT LAKE CITY – A Utah author says a schoolteacher plagiarized her Christian romance novel, added graphic sex scenes and passed it off as her own.In a case she says brings to light plagiarism in the burgeoning world of online self-publishing, Rachel Ann Nunes of Orem filed a federal lawsuit in August against a Layton teacher, Tiffanie Rushton, who she says cut and pasted large sections from an electronic copy of her book.Nunes wrote “Love to the Highest Bidder” in 1998 about two art dealers, one from New York and the other from California, who meet while competing for an Indian Buddha statue and fall in love.It was first published by a Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints-oriented publisher. After the book went out of print, Nunes got the copyright and put out a slightly revised e-book version on Amazon.com with the name “A Bid for Love.”Rushton’s manuscript, “The Auction Deal,” is about an art dealer who goes to Beverly Hills to bid on a rare sculpture and meets a successful gallery owner from Chicago, according to an online description. The full e-book has been pulled from the site goodreads.com.Nunes claims the book, which was not published in print, was written by Rushton under the pen name Sam Taylor Mullens.“All the characters are the same, lines throughout and the plot. It is really hard for me to read it,” Nunes said Tuesday. “I feel like my life has been stolen.”She named a character after one of her seven children, making the added sex scenes particularly disturbing.Rushton did not return phone and email messages seeking comment, and no attorney has yet been listed for her.Though the story had been altered, Nunes says the details were recognizable to bloggers who Rushton asked to review an advance copy of the manuscript.Nunes’ book, for example, contained this line in chapter one: “For six years, he had put up with her overt stares and innuendos because she was not only his boss and sole owner of the gallery but also his friend.”Rushton’s first chapter included a similar line, according to a screen shot posted online by Nunes: “For ten years, I’d tolerated her overt stares and innuendos because she was part owner of our gallery and always seemed to find opportunities with new clients that helped the gallery that I could not.”Rushton appeared to be recasting the niche Christian story Nunes wrote into a book that would appeal to a mainstream romance reader looking for a more erotic tale, she said.“It really is the thing that sells the most,” said Nunes, who has written 47 books in the last 18 years.In email exchanges between Rushton and Nunes, Rushton said the idea came from a friend who died in a car wreck and that she didn’t want to reveal her real name because she is Mormon and her extended family wouldn’t approve of her writing, according to the suit.Nunes said she’s confirmed Mullens and Rushton are the same woman, though she declined to provide details, citing the lawsuit. A spokesman for the Davis School District confirmed that Rushton has been a third-grade teacher since 1993.After their exchange, Nunes says negative reviews began popping up on Amazon.com, Facebook and other websites. She alleges that Rushton created seven different profiles in an attempt to discredit her.Nunes is seeking at least $150,000 in damages as well as attorney’s fees in the suit, which was first reported by the Ogden Standard-Examiner. Since filing it, Nunes says she’s heard from other authors whose work has also been copied from their e-books. The books are often pulled when the plagiarism is identified but later reposted under a different name.“It’s so much easier … online, you can be so anonymous,” she said. “How many authors can afford to take someone to court? That’s your life savings, that’s your whole future.” Utah author says woman plagiarized her Christian romance novel, added sex scenes by Lindsay Whitehurst, The Associated Press Posted Sep 9, 2014 1:30 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Polyus delays commissioning of Natalka – to be Russias largest gold mine

first_imgPolyus Gold International, the largest gold producer in Russia, has decided, in light of the challenging market conditions, to re-sequence the development of the Natalka project (to be Russia’s largest gold mine) and delay the launch of the plant to summer 2015 from the previously announced target of summer 2014. Although it is operationally possible to commence gold production at the Natalka mine as previously planned, Polyus Gold deems it prudent to postpone its commissioning given the recent substantial decline in the gold price and the possibility of further weakness. The decision to extend the construction schedule will, therefore, enable Polyus Gold to better balance the capital requirements of Natalka with the need to maintain a sound balance sheet and robust funding position in the uncertain macro environment. Further to a deferral of the project’s residual capex, the re-sequencing will allow the company to identify additional cost and operational efficiencies, including the optimisation of capital and operating expenditures, improvements to the project design and the potential implementation of the photo metric separation technology (optical sorting) as a way to pre-enrich the ore.Polyus Gold expects to finalise a detailed plan of improvements to the project by the middle of 2014 following a thorough project assessment review scheduled for H1 2014. In the meantime, construction works onsite will continue, albeit at a slower pace as compared to previously planned. Mining works which actively commenced in 2013 in accordance with the license terms will also continue.Pavel Grachev, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Polyus Gold: “Polyus Gold remains fully committed to bringing Natalka on stream. Once in operation, it will be Russia’s largest gold mine with its first stage producing an average of 500,000 oz/y of gold. The gold mining sector has to adapt to a tough business environment today, with the gold price decrease of 30% over the last 12 months to the level of $1,200/oz. Moreover, there is a possibility of further decline. In light of these challenges, we will advance the project in a prudent manner so as to benefit from an extended construction schedule and seize every opportunity to improve the project’s economics to ensure maximum returns to all our stakeholders, including shareholders, authorities and local communities.”Natalka has the potential to eventually reach an annual output of 1.5 Moz. It is located about 400 km from the sea port of Magadan in the Far East of Russia, Natalka is one of the largest known undeveloped gold deposits in the world. The mine is expected to have a processing capacity of 10 Mt/y of ore at the launch of its operations. Following a stage by stage increase of the mill throughput to 40 Mt of ore annually (conventional shovel-and-truck open-pit operation).Gold reserves (Proven and Probable) amount to 31.6 Moz and resources (Measured, Indicated and Inferred) are estimated at 59.7 Moz.last_img read more

After Inventing the Checkin Foursquare Pivots With Efforts to Sell its Location

first_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. 3 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Foursquare has gone through a profound transformation since it popularized the concept of the “check-in” back in 2009.The New York-based company’s main business is now licensing its location data to other companies like American Express, Pinterest and Land Rover. When you use a geofilter in Snapchat or type a venue name into Uber, you’re using Foursquare data.What’s led so many companies to rely on Foursquare’s location technology?For starters, there are the more than 10 billion check-ins that Foursquare’s 50 million monthly users have registered to date. But the company’s real “superpower,” according to founder and chairman Dennis Crowley, is something called Pilgrim. And starting Wednesday, Foursquare is making Pilgrim available to all apps for the first time.“We live in a world today where people are building things based off of basic GPS coordinates,” Crowley told Business Insider during a recent interview. With Pilgrim, Foursquare can give other apps and marketers “specific awareness of context in space” — a “big idea” Crowley said will “take time for people to wrap their heads around.”While traditional GPS can see when a phone enters a mall, Foursquare’s Pilgrim technology is able to understand that the phone is on the second floor of said mall and inside a J Crew store for the second time. It’s by analyzing this data that Foursquare has been able to accurately predict everything from iPhone to Chipotle sales.Crowley envisions other companies using Pilgrim to send notifications like hyper-specific coupons and even create Pokémon Go-like games that “change based upon where you bring your phone.” Foursquare’s main app has been using Pilgrim for years to send custom-tailored recommendations based on where its users go in the real world.For Crowley, who first made his name by selling his location-based social network Dodgeball to Google in 2005, opening up Pilgrim is the culmination of Foursquare’s seven-year history. While the company won’t disclose actual numbers, Crowley said that “revenue is growing nicely” and that the business is in “a really healthy spot right now.”“We always thought that someone would come along and make something like the Pilgrim SDK and we would just use it,” he said. “I don’t think we imagined way back in the day that we would be the company to actually bring this to market.” March 2, 2017 This story originally appeared on Business Insider Register Now »last_img read more

Report Low Appraisals Not at Fault for Slow Housing Recovery

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Headlines, News, Origination Share Despite complaints from Realtors that low appraisals are disrupting home sales, a new analysis from FNC Inc. argues that valuations have had little impact in the delayed housing recovery.As home values have made a rapid ascent in the past few years, those on the sales side point to lagging appraisal models as a major hurdle to finalizing transactions. In a 2012 study, the National Association of Realtors found a combined 35 percent of members surveyed reported delayed, renegotiated, or even canceled sales contracts as a result of lower than expected valuations.In a newly released report, however, FNC maintains that despite anecdotal reports, “there is no strong evidence that low appraisal valuations contributed to mortgages falling through.”Examining a sample of appraisals done this year, the company reported that nearly nine in 10 purchase loan appraisals “provide a value opinion that supports the transaction price,” with an estimated 27.6 percent valuing at contract price and 61.4 percent coming in above contract.Out of those homes appraised at values below contract price, only 10.2 percent have short by 1 percent or more year-to-date—well within the typical 10–12 percent range, the company says.At the same time, the share of above-contract appraisals valued at more than 1 percent of the home’s contract price year-to-date is 40.4 percent—a statistic FNC calls “puzzling.””If [the] market is relatively efficient in setting prices, below-contract and above-contract appraisals are expected to occur with similar frequencies,” the firm said in its report.In other findings, FNC reported results were consistent across all price tiers, with approximately 90 percent of purchase loans appraised at or above contract all-around.Breaking down the results, however, low-tier properties appear much more likely to be appraised significantly above contract, with nearly one-third of homes priced at $150,000 or lower appraised above contract by 3 percent or more compared with only 13.3 percent of properties priced above $500,000.
