My favorite basketball team is the Golden State Warriors. My favorite place to get tickled is the back of my leg. My favorite place to get tickled is the Golden State Warriors. [MUSIC] That is the morph cut. It's like auto tune but for video editing in that it smooths out some rough parts. But even if you don't edit video, you'll want to check out what this can do. Morph Cut is a new transition available on Adobe's video editing software, Premiere Pro. Now usually when you remove unwanted sections from an interview, you end up with a jump. A Morph Cut smooths out that jump, so the viewer doesn't notice anything. Here's a demo from Adobe first to the before. Well I think what Mike means to skateboarding I think Mike represents an idea. Now the editor adds more cuts to the transitions, lets the software interpolate and allies using face recognition and viola, the after. I think what Mike means to skateboarding, I think Mike represents An idea that anyone can be a part of something. Looks like magic. But is it as great as Adobe says? Let's put it to the test. Here's Jason Parker. We've subtitled the words in yellow that we're gonna take out. I know that the lines start at 5am in the morning, and I don't... I'm not going to get up that early, I'm just not, its gonna be m... I'm probably going to get up around 8 or so. Now, here's the clip with jump cuts. I know that the lines start at five a.m. in the morning, I'm not gonna get up that early, I'm just not. I'm probably gonna get up around maybe eight or so. And finally, [UNKNOWN] cut. I know that the lines start at five a.m. in the morning, I'm not gonna get up that early, I'm just not. I'm probably gonna get up around maybe eight or so. That looks pretty smooth but we didn't always get great results. Here's another example from Wayne. But it'll give me the voice prompt and let me get where I'm going. I can also activate, I can also activate series [INAUDIBLE] by a long press but it'll give me the voice prompts and let me get where I'm going. I can also activate [INAUDIBLE] eyes free by a long press Did you see the hands? That looks kind of weird. Many of our tests look obvious like the video was stuttering or buffering. Sorry, the lighting and the background have to be consistent. You'll also want to play with the transition duration. But, when it does work, you can also get pretty cheeky and make some one say something totally different. Giraffes are some of the tallest animals in the world, but mice on the other hand are some of the smallest animals in the world. Giraffes are some of the Smallest animals in the world. That's the test drive with Premier Pros Morph Cut feature. Have you had a chance to try it out? Did you get good results? Or terrible ones? Post the links to your own tests in the comments. [MUSIC]
