After the publication of my series of lessons on the basics of video editing on a computer (non-linear editing), I began to be asked questions regarding the technical component of editing. To begin with, I decided to choose the most primitive program - Windows Movie Maker. It is simple, free, and everyone has it - just click "Start-All Programs." At the same time, which is surprising, for most of the most common installation operations it is enough.
This is the first part of the lessons. I tried to make it as clear as possible, dynamic and simple. By the numerous wishes of the public, I equipped her with my audio comments.
If you have any questions, ask them in the comments. I'm still doing the next series and maybe I can take into account questions or suggestions.
A film about your travels with spectacular design
Often a trip to Europe, a distant exotic country, or through the expanses of his native country, brings so many vivid impressions that it is impossible not to perpetuate them in a good, interesting film. The creation of such a masterpiece takes several steps.
Step 1. Download the new version of Windows Movie Maker.
The program is easy to learn and has the full functionality of a professional utility for creating films and presentations. Unlike other analogues, it does not take up much space on a PC, and does not affect the performance of the operating system.
Step 2. How to create a movie from photos with music.
Download the photos that you previously uploaded to your computer from a camcorder, camera or mobile phone. The photo transferred to the work tape becomes an element of the film - a slide. Now start editing. Click on the corresponding icon, which is located under each slide in the right preview window.
Step 3. Add new graphic elements.
In the upper left corner, click on the image of a cross, and in the drop-down menu select “Clipart”. Next is the category "Tourism". Here are a variety of slide design options. Including: image of a beach hammock, steamboat, seashells. If the trip was romantic, then choose from the category "Romance" - hearts, flowers, the inscription "love". There was a winter voyage - “Winter”, and then bows, candles, Christmas toys
Step 4. Add music.
In the main menu, select the “Music” tab. Add the music file from the collection to your PC. It may be a resort hit, but romantic or instrumental music is always a win-win option. The new version of Windows Movie Maker allows you to add voice comments.
Step 5. How to create a movie from a video with music.
Just like photos, travel videos are added to the work stream. Slides are swapped by simple drag and drop. Transitions are set automatically, to change, double-click on them, and choose from the new options, we recommend colorful 3D transitions. Double click to apply a new effect.
Step 6. Add 3D text to the video.
In the slide editor, select the "Caption" category, then its three-dimensional version. Click Add To Slide. Enter new text. This may be a description of the visited attraction, a famous quote on travel, your own words that are associated with it. Good examples: “A new travel plan is a dance lesson sent by God,” “Going on a journey, you will make yourself richer,” and others.
