tough game “We lost some points that we didn’t bargain for ourselves, and they are coming off two straight losses, but we will not be fooled by that. “They will be coming to up the tempo against us, and even with those losses, we would be prepared for a tough game from them,” Vassell Reynolds, coach of Humble Lion said of today’s big clash. He added: “On paper, it is a Clarendon derby, as we are based in Clarendon and a large percentage of the Portmore United players are based in the parish. With that situation, neither team needs anything more to motivate the players.” Leading up to this game, Reynolds said his players trained well with a lot of emphasis on the mental aspects of the game. “We did a lot on the mental side, which will be key to the outcome of this game. “Wolry Wolfe has been leading the charge for us and others like Levaughn Williams, Ricardo Cousins, Devon Hodges, and FranÁois Swaby are also capable of delivering for us. Once we can get them to join the likes of Wolfe and Andrew Vanzie, in terms of performance and leadership, we will be fine,” the positive Reynolds said. As far as Portmore United’s Clive Marshall is concerned, the main focus for his team is to improve on their last two performances and return to their productive ways. Nothing else matters. “This game is more like a derby, given tradition and history, but we are not looking at it like that. We are looking at improving on our last two results and returning to winning ways,” manager Marshall said. According to Marshall, there is no time for making excuses about why they lost and the manner in which they lost. It was time taking responsibility and putting measures in place to correct the mistakes and not repeating them. While Jovan East has been the most consistent in front of goal this season and Ewan Grandison in one of the most experienced, Marshall said getting back to winning ways was not up to one or two players but the entire team. “We have a young team, but if the more experienced players provide the leadership and the other players respond in a similar way then we will be OK, but it has to be a team effort,” declared Marshall. At Barbican Stadium Boys’ Town will be looking to follow up their big win over Portmore United with a victory over the stabilising UWIFC while Cavalier can keep themselves out of the relegation zone with a win over Waterhouse.

Portmore United currently sit second in the table on 31 points, two behind leaders Montego Bay United and three ahead of Humble Lion. Normally, the visitors would be favoured to win, but they are on a two-game losing streak, losing 2-1 to 10th-placed Cavalier SC and 3-0 to seventh-placed Boys’ Town at the Juici Park field. This form should convince the Humble Lion players and fans that they have a good chance, especially at home.

Adding the Crop Effect to a ClipAdding the crop effect is as simple as dragging “Crop” from the Effects panel onto your clip. From there, you’ll have the ability to add the crop using the Left, Right, Top, and Bottom parameters. These parameters are also animatable, so if you want a crop to creep in, you can set some keyframes to slip a crop into your clip.If you’re looking for more precision, there’s a more customizable way to do it. Create an adjustment layer and place it over your clip. Add the Crop Effect to the adjustment layer and perform your cropping from there. This gives you a lot more control over the placement of your clip. You can adjust the placement of your clip with the position tools to use in conjunction with the crop tool.Adding a Cinematic TouchSo, to start, you can use the crop tool to add the classic cinematic widescreen bars to the top and bottom of your image. This’ll give you that letterbox, widescreen feel. To apply this effect to your entire edit, add an adjustment layer first, then move the clips around, fitting the new aspect ratio however you like.Use the Effect with TextThe crop tool can be an extremely stylish way to animate your text. All you need to do is apply the effect to your title and change the position, set your keyframes, and reveal the text at whatever speed fits the current style you’re trying to convey. It’s a fast way to add a touch of production value and flare to your project, if you want to add some movement to your titles and text.Create a Split ScreenThe next obvious effect you can throw on is the split screen. This is as simple as placing two clips on top of each other, then going over to the Effects Control Panel and moving the clip’s position, accordingly, to fit the center of the frame for each shot. If you want to move the clip over in a smooth way, right-click on the keyframe, hit “Temporal Interpolation,” and hit “Ease In” or “Ease Out.” This’ll smooth out the overall animation.Add Spicy TransitionsThe crop tool can turn your transitions into fun, fast-moving movements with a couple of simple keyframe placements. First, make sure the upcoming clip is atop the tail end of your current clip. Then, add the crop effect to both clips. For the bottom clip, enable the zoom (in the crop effect), then raise the bottom by about fifteen percent, with your keyframes set toward the end of the clip. This’ll stretch out the video downwards. Then, for the top clip, animate the bottom from one-hundred percent to zero percent. This’ll bring the clip down, following the first clip.Reveal Your EffectsSo, this effect is perfect for anybody doing breakdowns of their color grades, effects, shot compositions, or any type of tutorial-based instruction. Basically, however many effects you have applied to your clip, you’ll duplicate the clip X number of times. So, if you have four effects, you’ll make four new clips, and they’ll have all the effects applied to them. Then, take one effect off each clip, starting from the top. Your original clip should have no effects applied. Apply the crop effect to each clip and animate any property from one-hundred to zero, which will cause it to reveal itself. Finally, copy and duplicate the setting on each clip, and trim it down so your timeline looks like a staircase. This’ll slowly reveal all of the effects you’ve applied.Unfortunately, the Crop tool will only allow you to create a reveal with either a straight vertical or horizontal line. If you want to add a diagonal reveal, that’s where you’ll be having to work with masks within Premiere or After Effects.Blending Clips TogetherIf you’re looking to blend multiple shots that have been shot in the same placement, the crop tool is where you’ll bring them all together. Just take your multiple shots and place them on top of each other in your timeline. Apply the crop effect to all of them. From there, all you have to do is just crop each individual layer into the sections that they need to display, and add a feather to the edge (inside the crop tool), so they blend together nicely.
