  1. Hey guys, I was wondering if there was some kind of plugin that works in premiere that gives you preset split-screen effects. I did this a bunch of times in my old movie trailers (example below) but I was wondering if there was a good plugin that does it without automatically, including the effect when you have the screen split into 16+ little screens with the same thing going on (or slightly off to give a wave effect) Thanks in advance!
  2. Hey dude, I don't know how I missed this post! But great work, really nice editing and lovely shots
  3. I can read arabic, even though my vocabulary is poor. But I have a lot of Egyptian friends who can read and understand a police report properly. That said nobody here believes there is a police report bro. Or a 1DC. Like others have said, you will feel better after confessing and making things aright with your victims. Then you can repent in prayer (if you do pray). If you are a muslim/ christian/ jew then you surely believe that the best lies and the most perfect scams are exposed in the eyes of God anyway. So be a man and quit this game- at least you can still recover some of your dignity this way.
  4. Yeah, that just seems silly. I tried to see it from a perspective of a loving grandfather and his grandson both having the same name and not bothering to make a second account because it doesn't matter much to them... but it still doesn't make sense at all. I myself am half Egyptian and have family living in Egypt. My cousins are really into production and one does videography, so it wouldn't be difficult to ask him to look into it and verify the whole story. I hope this young guy takes everybody's advice and just confesses and offers a sincere apology. You a smart guy Ebrahim. Don't hurt your future further by trying to squirm out of this situation. As a fellow Egyptian and as a guy who liked reading your posts, I implore you to take peoples' advice and end the game here.
  5. Damn. That's definitely confusing as hell. I was defending the guy. Now I don't know what to believe. So those hundreds of posts were all written by this young guy? Or does Sr. exist, but has become ill or passed away? Was there an answer or explanation about the stolen footage on vimeo?
  6. Exactly. There are only two possibilities IMHO: 1 - Somebody nasty who doesn't like or is envious of Saadawi Sr. is attempting to destroy his rep. Hence the arrogant confession message on facebook. 2 - It's his grandson who is behind all of this and Saadawi Sr. is protecting him despite his folly and will give him a good spanking behind closed doors. And for all the naysayers- he already said he plans to refund the people who lost money from his own pocket. What more do you want?!
  7. Come on, it doesn't add up. All this elaborate hoax for stealing a few thousand dollars at the most? This is a case of identity theft. Maybe somebody close to Saadawi Sr who is jealous of him and wants to simultaneously ruin his reputation and make some money on the side. As for having the time to write all those posts, maybe he is retired? Or has a lot of free time?
  8. Before anything else happens let the guy try and find who has been stealing his identity. A few of days of patience is probably all that is needed here
  9. Come on dude, he only mentioned that he makes good money to demonstrate how absurd it would be for him to scam people for 300 dollars here and 200 dollars there.
  10. Thanks Stanley. I didn't have anything special to brace the camera- but a combination of a wide lens, slow-motion (50p interpreted to 25p), and a little practise was able to achieve this look. It would be a lot harder to have pulled it off if I was using my 38mm or 50mm lens instead of the 19mm, for sure! Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that a few shots I used Warp Stabiliser in Premiere (subspace warp, 10% "smoothness")
  11. If I was doing a music video I would definitely get anything BUT the C300. 50/ 60fps in important to me. If 25p is all you need for sure then okay but even basic slo-mo can be quite useful especially for music videos. I would take the FS5 but if you had to go Canon then I would go for the C100 mk2.
  12. Shot on A6000 with Sigma 19mm 2.8. All handheld. Thanks for watching!
  13. Nice video! Love the cloud timelapse on the mountains
  14. Do you think they could improve the RS with a firmware update that will push the hardware a little har... Ah who am I kidding. Guess I will stick to my a6000 till they fix the RS with an update/ another camera... lol
  15. Why don't we just ban this fool
  16. I used Neutral -3 -1 -1 to shoot this. Barely graded it with FilmConvert but not much at all:
  17. Nice video! I especially like the shots at the middle and end
  18. That does look like a still for sure!
  19. First of all, nice work Ed! It was interesting how the subtitles played out like her scattered thoughts. About politics, I wonder how most people still think that who is president matters. Sure, the president has some power to push things, but in the end the decisions are made by congress / big banks, Feds etc / corporations. Any president can only do so much.
  20. I hate Buzzfeed. I think I only watched one video which was good. The rest are just superficial crap that promotes either moral depravity or hipster bullshit. /hater
