What does CORE EDIT mean and why is it the only thing not all sliced up in your timeline?
To conserve CPU (also, sanity), I do my edits in sections. For the first BASTARDS video, I started by animating the landscape of outer space. When the colors and motion were just about right, I exported the clip as a whole and called the clip CORE.mpeg
Think about it as if you’re painting a brown wall white. The core footage is, in essence, my wall’s primer. I started a new sequence and imported the core footage, syncing it up in the new project’s Timeline. The second layer of video was for Asteroids, Orbiting Moons, Rockets, and additional Green Screen Footage. Covering up the primer that’s covering up the brown base.
Once that’s done, I export it again and repeat the process until finished. This method is especially handy when you’re working with multiple video tracks. If I did this all in one take, I’d have well over 100 layers of footage in the first twenty seconds (and it’s nowhere near completion at 100). You just have to be confident in your edits and make sure you’re happy with layers before you export them.
