My edit of my 2 minute film.
This is the tool I used to blur the screen.
This was how I added text to my edit.
I used the ultra key to do the green screen and then adjusted the effects around and swapped the files round. I used the pipette tool to click on the part which was to be green screened.
If you need to render the clips because the screen keeps freezing or buffering, simply hit the space key.
This was how I made the video shots by using the scale tool.
Use the razor tool to cut the clips. You would do this if you filmed unnecessary footage or if the person has used ‘um…’ a lot or there was a long pause.
Once I had finished my project and saved it, I clicked File, Export and media.
After clicking on export media, this will pop up. You choose the format and preset you want and rename the file. I chose to use H.264 and HD 1080p 25 which means high definition, 1080p are the pixels. This is a progressive scan as opposed to 1080i which is an interlaced scan. Progressive and interlace displays are the two main categories for screens. Put simply, progressive is better because it will minimize picture flickering. A frame of 1080i video consists of two sequential fields of 1920 horizontal and 540 vertical pixels.
Once you click export, this will pop up, leave it to finish completely and this message will remove itself eventually. Then your video is saved wherever you chose to save it.
Although the time remaining is no longer displayed, this doesn’t mean the project has finished exporting. Simply wait and the message will eventually go.
