A picture is worth a thousand words. So watch this picture, and learn…
When you apply PUSH to your project (onto a clip, not solo), the following happens:
The video clips gets pushed to the right (or left), and the text appears: in a sequence, from top, bottom, left or right. Or, it simple fades in/out.
Drag the title-bar for length… this does NOT affect the speed of the animations.
For convenience, a few basic font settings are in the same Inspector.
Finally, you can select a different color for the box.
This methodof removing video flicker is a variation of a method I first learned from Philip Bloom, which I ended up using extensively (and adapting as-needed) when working with slow motion footage that I shot in Europe this past May. The best way to deal with flicker is to shoot in such a way that you don’t have it in your footage in the first place. This can be done by ensuring your frame rate and shutter speed are offset from the speed of a flickering light source, such as LEDs or Fluorescent lights.
But what if you’ve shot something and you didn’t realize there were flickering lights until you were reviewing the footage later? In this case, here’s a quick trick that can help fix it. This won’t work in all scenarios, but it’s an easy first step to take to see if it works.
The actual method really does take only about 30 seconds.

Today is Memorial Day. We wanted to share with you a brief two-time Emmy winning video that has great impact, especially today, but no matter where you are in this world. Stephen Clouse and Guy Noffsinger produced, edited and put this together for The Freedom Alliance who supports our troops and their families through educational scholarships, recreational therapy, and activities that help injured heroes heal. To date, this video has received well over 15 million views, has been seen in Times Square multiple times, and has garnished two Emmy Awards in 2016.
‘Just A Common Soldier’, also known as ‘A Soldier Died Today’, is one of the most popular poems on the Internet. Written and published in 1987 by Canadian veteran and columnist A. Lawrence Vaincourt, it now appears in numerous anthologies, on thousands of websites and on July 4, 2008 it was carved into a marble monument at West Point, US. Set to music by the author’s son, composer Randy Vancourt, it has been released several times as a record, most recently on November 1st, 2013 by American singer Connie Francis.
After syndicated U.S. advice columnist Ann Landers reprinted parts of Vaincourt’s poem in 1991, it went the pre-digital equivalent of viral throughout the English-speaking world. In 2005, the United States Military Academy in West Point, N.Y, incorporated words from the poem into a marble monument. In 2009, the Royal British Legion sought and gained permission to use Just a Common Soldier as part of its annual poppy campaign. This year marks the poem’s 25th anniversary.“Larry” Vaincourt grew up in the Châteauguay Valley and was living in Deux-Montagnes when he wrote Just A Common Soldier. His wife, Doreen, still lives in the home where the couple raised five sons, including Randy, who lives in Toronto today and handles reprinting requests for the poem.
Vaincourt only started working as a columnist for the Watchman in 1983, which was the year he turned 60 and sold the last of the photo studios he had long operated in Pointe-Claire and Deux-Montagnes. In 2004, he won the Quebec Community Newspaper Association award for best column, for his humorous account of the long underwear he had worn during the Second World War, when he had served in England as an airplane mechanic with the Royal Canadian Air Force. Vaincourt also wrote a novel, which he finished a month before he died in 2009, and has yet to be published.
His son Randy says he wrote Just a Common Soldier at a time when some of his friends at the local Legion in Deux-Montagnes had started to die: “His circle of friends had started to get smaller and smaller, and these were just ordinary soldiers like him, and he thought about how little the public knew about all these ordinary men and women who had served.”
Shortly after he had written the poem, he sent an item on a whim to Ann Landers titled the Tissue Issue, about the proper way to place a roll of toilet paper — with the paper rolling out over the top of the roll, or out from under the bottom? Landers never published the item, but it sparked an ongoing personal correspondence and friendship. In 1991, Vaincourt was about to publish Rhymes and Reflections, the first of three books of his columns and poems, when he asked Landers for an endorsement for the book jacket — and she said yes. Vaincourt sent her a copy of the book, and it was while reading it that she came across Just a Common Soldier.
No matter where you today, remember those fallen heroes that gave the ultimate sacrifice so that you could live a better life. Please share this video with your friends and family, especially on a day like today.
Real estate is a visual medium, so photos and video are crucial to sales. This includes everything from home sales, luxury office space, or extravagant vacation rentals. Pictures are crucial to websites that showcase homes for sale, hotels, and even places listed on sites like Airbnb.

In this post, we will cover the basic rules of real estate video production and the three main types of real estate videos. By the end, you will have a solid understanding of what it takes to make a must-see real estate video that really impresses your potential buyers.
