  • Remove Source Information on certain Clips

    Hi, so I have a timeline with clips from 2 different cameras and I want to remove the source information(date/time) on one of the camera clips.

    Camera 1 is avchd and I add the date/timestamp using Edius' Show source information, this works perfectly

    Camera 2 shoots in AVI and has the date/timestamp already burned into the file.

    This becomes a problem because now the avi's have the original BURN IN date/timestamps and also a blank date/timestamp from edius.(see picture)

    Is there a way to remove the source information on specified clips? Or what would be a proper workaround?

    The only thing I can think of is to mixdown/export the AVCHD clips with the date/time from edius and then bring it back into the timeline and remove the show source information from the settings... It would be nice to be able to see each individual clip on the timeline and not have to mix down the whole sequence.. any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    if the TC is part of the avi file, it can't be removed. You can crop it off and then reposition the file to vertical center with the layouter

    or you can draw a black box with the titler to hide it and then place the new TC on that box

      Mask + Blur

      Add a mask filter, draw a rectangle and add an inside blur filter?

        I need to remove the time or date stamp written in the clip. Because I want to stabilize it and the jumping stamp is killing the stabilization. Whats the best way to do it? I have tried the Mask+ many filters but nothing looked acceptable.

        I saw proDad has got the Hide app. But it looks like an expensive overkill

            the stamp is at 20% height of the clip. Dont want to lose the part of the picture

          Problems with stabilization in Edius are best avoided by using a more sophisticated tool, even the simple tracker stabilizer in After Effects allows you to select an area or point to track which ignores everthing else in the shot. I'm unsure why the Edius developers would not go the full distance and provide such user options.

          Download a free trial of AE ?

          Use the free tracker in Resolve?

          It's really not so hard to work around these issues and use the right tool rather than struggle with the wrong one,

            Dont get it too much. If I track and stabilise just a part(even 80%) of the picture the rest (non stabilized) would not match/fit to the stabilized part. Also is the tracker in Edius not usable for this type of the scenario?

          How can I crop it and reposition it if the Layouter is always under the Stabilizer filter? Also if I crop it I need to fill the missing are by resizing/stretching the clip otherwise I guess the stabilization process will deal with the bottom and top black bars as part of the video and will dance them into the actual picture

              I mean to apply the crop before the stabilizer is applied. As you can see in your video once you check the Stabilizer option it crops first and then you apply the second crop in Layouter. But I need to firstly crop in Layouter (to get out the time stamp) and then to apply the Stabilizer. Otherwise the time stamp may occasionally jump in to the video after applying the Stabilizer meaning I would need to check the entire clip and crop an additional part of the bottom.

                in that case you untick stabilizer and crop in layouter, when done, tick stabilizer

                but it makes no sense, because you maybe cropping too much this way
