    Pinnacle Studio Tutorial – Object Masking with Motion Tracking

    November 22, 2019


    In this tutorial we’ll learn about video masking with track motion. Once your clip has been added to the timeline you can simply select Track Motion and then Mask Object. Now that the Track Motion dialog is open, I’m going to drag my scrubber to a section of the video where I can see the parachute in plain sight so I can outline it. In the menu on the right I can select the shapes to best highlight my objects so we’ll select the circle shape and drag it over top of the parachute. You can fine-tune the mask by dragging the orange nodes along the outside. You can add a new node with a simple click. but what I’m doing now is I’m tracing the outside of the parachute by adding nodes along the way We’ll just speed through the next part as I outline the rest of this Once your object is highlighted we’re going to analyze the click by selecting the center track motion icon. This tracks the selected area backwards and forward from the current time point until it is no longer detected on screen so now let’s go back and check the tracking analysis by playing the video in spot checking a few points. As we move throughout the video we’ll see that the tracking moves along and it has identified the object as we go. If we find a part in the video where a node has gone off track or it doesn’t fully cover the selected area we can simply find the first frame where it goes off track re-adjust the nodes and then we’ll continue tracking forward. so once we’ve made these adjustments will select the last icon under analysis which tracked the selected mask forward all frames. Then we’ll just do a quick spot check to make sure that work and everything is looking good! Once you’ve reviewed the whole video and are happy with the mask you can select okay and it will export this into your timeline. Here we can see the mask has been added to the timeline essentially as an extraction from the original video. So now the fun part you can go in and you can add effect either the mask layer or the background layer to really make this video your own and make your object stand out. You can also easily apply a blur or mosaic blur to an object which comes in handy when you’re looking to blur it a license-plate, blur face or just remove an object from an item so it’s no longer in focus. Let’s apply a name to the mask we previously created and then select the icon to the right of it to create a new mask. We’ll put a label on this as well. I’m just going to scrub backwards here so I can see the face of the little boy of which we’re going to blur out. In similar fashion we’ll select the circle icon and outline his face readjust the node so that we’re covering it. Once we’ve highlighted our object the menu on the right we can see two checkboxes for the mosaic effects or blur. By simply selecting this we can then apply the effect to the inside the mask – so we’ll see the mosaic being applied to his face. Then adjust the size of the mosaic underneath in the settings. Now you can also apply the blur both with the mosaic effects or on a thumb to play with the checkmark to get what you want and click to adjust the settings here as well. Once you’re happy with the effect applied we can go ahead and analyze the clip.

    The Rules of Track Cycling – EXPLAINED!

    November 18, 2019


    Ninh explains, the Rules of Track Cycling
    The object of the game is to cycle faster than your opponents.
    Track Cycling, sometimes referred to as ‘Olympic Track Cycling’, is contested indoors, on
    a curved banked track that measures 250m long, otherwise known as a Velodrome.
    In general, the rider who crosses the finish line first, wins.
    Shortest video ever, right? Well, sadly not. Rather confusingly, track
    cycling has many different events, each with significantly different rules to each other.
    I‘m not going to cover every single event in this video, but the most popular events
    are: Individual Time Trial
    This is the simplest event to understand, as it’s purely a race against the clock.
    The distance is 1km for men and for 500m for women.
    You’re out there on your own and the fastest rider across the finish line from a standing
    start, wins.>A flying time trial allows you to build
    up speed before they start the clock, and only the last 200m is timed. Fastest over
    200m is the winner. Individual Pursuit.
    It’s very similar to the time trial, except that now – you’re racing against someone.
    Individual riders start from opposite ends of the track.
    When the starting gun goes off, they have to race 4km for men and 3km for women.
    First person to cross the line wins The fastest four winners will ride off against
    each other until there is only one winner. Team Pursuit
    Four riders will ride for 4 km against another team.
    Each team starts from opposite ends of the track.
    The team that catches the other team, or that records the fastest time over 4km, wins.
    In Team Pursuit, there is a catch – at least three riders must finish the race and the
    time is taken from the third rider’s front wheel crossing the line.
    Individual Sprint The ultimate game of cat-and-mouse. The distance
    is just 750m or 3 laps of an Olympic track. Riders start next to each other and both will
    try and use tactics to either make the opponent go first, or to push the rider in an unfavourable
    position, before making a run for the line themselves.
    The time you take to do these three laps does not matter.
    All that matters is you must cross the finish line before your opponent.
    The rider who wins 2 out of 3 races, wins the individual sprint.
    Team Sprint. Teams start at opposite ends of the track
    and consist of 3 riders over 3 laps for men, 2 riders over 2 laps for women
    The first rider sets the pace, and after 1 lap, must peel away from the pack.
    The next rider (for men) also has a lap before they must also ride away.
    The last rider then has to sprint the final lap to the finish line on their own.
    The teams with the two best times, ride off to be crowned the winner, and there are also
    contests for 3rd & 4th place. Keirin
    Possibly the strangest event in Track cycling is the Keirin.
    Developed in Japan as a means of gambling, it consists of up to 7 riders over 8 laps
    of the track. Except that 5 ½ of those laps consists of
    following a motorised bicycle, known as a derny.
    Riders must stay behind the derny as it increases in speed – and they will try to jostle each
    other out of position to get an advantage over their rivals
    Once the derny pulls away from the track, it’s a free-for-all sprint for the last
    2.5 laps. First person to cross the finish line after
    all 8 laps, wins. Elimination Race
    24 riders start at the same time over a race of 50 laps.
    The rules are simple – don’t be last. Because in every two laps, whoever is the
    last to cross the start line is eliminated. This carries on until there is only one winner. Scratch Race
    A mid distance event that is 15km for Men, and 10km for Women.
    The rules are simple – be the first across the finish line.
    Endurance riders will try and outpace sprinters, and sprinters will try an d hide in the main
    pack to conserve energy before making a final run.
    How you play it is up to you … so long as you cross the line first.
    Points Race Think of this as NASCAR racing … on bicycles.
    A long distance event that is 40km for Men, and 25km for Women.
    A sprint is held every 10 laps, signalled by a bell.
    Points are awarded to the first four across the line for each sprint and points are double
    during the last sprint of the race. Riders can also earn 20 points for lapping
    the field. Most points at the end of the race, wins.
    Madison Put simply – it’s a points race but with
    teams of two riders. Only one rider can race at a time, so riders
    must touch or tag their partner for them to be eligible to race. You’ll see them slinging
    each other to give each other a boost. The race is 50km for men, and 30km for women.
    The team with the most points at the end of the race, wins.
    Omnium This is the decathlon of cycling events, and
    is comprised of the following 4 or 6 races. You get points depending on the position you
    finish at each race, and the rider with the most amount of points after 4 or 6 events
    is the winner of the Omnium. Is there anything else I need to know?
    Yes, there’s a few other things you’ll need to know before riding or watching track
    cycling. For example: Lines
    There are lines that go around the perimeter of the track and they all mean different things. The cote d’azur is the start of the velodrome.
    This light blue strip is for entering and exiting the track only. The black line – also known as the datum line
    – and denotes the shortest length of the track; 250-metres for an Olympic facility.
    Riders will try to stay glued to the black line as this is the shortest and fastest way
    around the track. The red line is also known as the sprinter’s
    line. If a rider is in the channel betwen black and red lines, the opponent must come
    around the red line and can only cross their path once the overtake is complete. You cannot
    use this lane to overtake other riders. The blue line – also known as the stayer’s
    line – is for use in Madison races. The resting riders will circulate above the blue until
    they are tagged back into action. False Start.
    If you start before the starting gun goes off, the gun will fire a second time to indicate
    that you have started early. This is known as a false start. If you commit two false
    starts, you are disqualified from the contest. Slip Streaming and Drafting
    During the team events, you’ll see riders follow each other very closely.
    And sometimes, you’ll see riders intentionally move from the front, to the back – but why?
    Due to aerodynamics, cycling in a pack expends less energy than cycling alone, especially
    if you’re at the back. Team will usually share the workload and swap places during
    a race to conserve energy and be in the best position to sprint for the line.
    That’s a lot to take in, but once you’ve watched cycling for a while, the rules will
    become clear. If you have found this video at all helpful,
    please be sure to like share and subscribe. It takes me ages to make one of these things
    and good karma is very much appreciated. Follow me on Twitter also and share on Reddit,
    but in the meantime – enjoy Olympic Track Cycling. Ninh Ly – www.ninh.co.uk – @NinhLyUK

    Tunnel Vision: Man Builds Million Dollar Model Railway

    November 17, 2019


    HOWARD: It’s a hobby, people have hobbies. This happens to be mine. COMM: This Maryland basement is home to one man’s lifelong passion. HOWARD: I am proud of it, definitely an addiction. COMM: Covering almost 3,000 square feet, Howard Zane’s huge handcrafted model train land
    is renowned as one of the finest in America, and could be worth a staggering amount of
    money. HOWARD: I would say probably around 2 million. But I hate to do that, ‘cause I really don’t
    know, I couldn’t price it. It’s hard to say. COMM: And while it’s the love of his life, thankfully, his third wife doesn’t mind. SANDY: I fully support it, and the best part of all is I always know where Howard is. He
    is always in the basement, he is not out at the pubs or the bars, he is working on his
    layout, and having a great time, so I think it’s a great hobby. It could be worse. Even
    if he is a trainoholic, that’s perfectly okay. COMM: The 77 year old began work on his Piermont division layout 30 years ago when he retired,
    and went into business selling his custom made scale buildings and trains. HOWARD: It looks like it’s very expensive but 90% of the buildings are scratch build,
    which means they are not kits, so my material cost let’s see for a building like this
    over here would probably be less than $25. So now if these were kits or I had somebody
    build it or I also build professional layouts for other people, I did, I am retired from
    that now. A layout of this size would cost around 3 million dollars. I can’t put a
    dollar amount on this because as I said everything, most of this stuff is scratch built. The only
    thing of value are the locomotives. COMM: The huge layout features around 1,400 feet of tracks, equivalent to 23 scale miles.
    And it takes an hour to complete one circuit. HOWARD: Just about everybody on this planet has some kind of an affinity or liking of
    trains; some carry it out a little further than others like myself. My inspiration was
    my father. I did my first train layout at age 3, so it was in my blood. COMM: Howard’s friends have been a big help. FRED: I bring groups down here quite often, and people jaws just drop to the floor as
    soon as they walk down the steps and they see what’s here. SCOTT: And experience it in person, it blows those expectations away, I mean it’s remarkable
    the amount of passion that I think it conveys that Howard has for this hobby, it’s inspirational. JAN: He is probably here 24/7. He will wake up in the middle of the night and want to
    build something, and he has done this. COMM: But his obsession with model railways has had affect on his love life. HOWARD: My first wife was, the trains were competition for her at times, she didn’t
    quite understand. My second wife, she thought I should be more serious. So it’s…it got
    to be a problem after a while. Sandy is an artist. She is a fiddle player, and she understands
    art, and she understands thoroughly why I am down here playing with this thing or building. SANDY: I have a wing of the house for my own which is Howard has trains everywhere else.
    In fact you will see trains going around the kitchen, the dining room, the living room,
    everywhere else. But I do have my own space. COMM: And although his railways might expand in the future, size isn’t everything. HOWARD: I just want to maintain a certain level of quality. If I were to expand, it
    will bring it up to 4,400 square feet, it’s one of the largest in the area. SANDY: He certainly talks about having a train under his pillow at night. I think if he could,
    he would. But we don’t go that far. Question is whether Howard has some psychological obsession
    or impairment and…possibly but it’s a good one.
