First public attempt with VS

Post by Zig »

Below is my first feeble attempt at making a production fit for public consumption. The video was captured with a Sony SX41 HandyCam, and the stills with a Sony DSC-W300 (zero post processing done).
The video is in Mpeg-2 and the pictures in .jpg format, so the video is rendered in MPEG-2.
I have two very specific questions:
1) since the video capture is in Mpeg-2, I'm presuming staying with this format when saving the final product in a video file is the best option to keep quality as high as possible?

2) The first and second titles shown I changed to fade away, but wasn't able to figure out how to fade them in (while preserving the fade-out) - any suggestions as to how to make that effect?

1. Yes, as long as your output properties match the clip properties, and SmartRender is applied, it will not be re-rendered.

2. When you appy the Fade animation, click on the "TT" for more options - Fade In, Fade Out, and Crossfade.

Ah, ok! Thanks BL.
I had used a title from the standard library, but didn't have what I wanted in the animation options. I wasn't aware of the TT menu. It is the cross fade that I wanted to use.

I thought it was very good, loved the transitions and the mix of stills, also that slow motion near the end. Well done.

:D :D :D

Well I watched your fishing expedition. :D
They look like sunfish that you are catching, we don't eat those tiny fish where I live.

Your video is very nice though, I have never made one except with a Kokak 8mm Colorburst, I think.
It was recalled anyway, I haven't got it anymore. That was many years ago. My late son edited the
tapes and put them all on a VCR cassette. That was years ago too. I lent it to one of them, I didn't
see the whole tape either. But perhaps they still have it, I don't know.

We catch bass, and pike. Trout in another lake. I don't eat any of them, but people do.
I used to like to go fishing. I don't like to take a big 4-5 lb fish off the hook tho'.

I think my Power Shot does movies, or moving shots, I don't know anything about cameras today.
I just shoot and get what I get. Then I resize in Paint Shop Pro. I can't be bothered reading the text
in the Canon book as the print is very small.
