Editing~~a look at the workstation
Understanding the workstation goes a long way to making editing easy.
Earlier versions of Video Studio did help in a way prompting us as
to what to do first.
Corel have changed the layout of Video Studio, now a series of vertical
icons separate the Preview Screen from the Library panels.
This opens the Media Library, Video, Photo and Audio pages.
The clips are simply thumbnails representing the files on the hard drive.
Clips showing in the libraries can be inserted to the timelines, right click for options or simply drag and drop.
Using the Add function we can create our own library pages, I have created a few here.
I only use the library temporary, for my current projects, I know that some users feel the library is suitable for managing and organising their files, my hard drive folders do that for me.
If I lose my library Icon always import the files again.
There are a lot to use, so have a play, import one to the timeline.
You may find Customise Motion may have been used, a very useful tool.
The Get More Content --the orange disc accesses the Corel Guide where
we can download other templates, most of which are Instant Project Templates
-- far to many to use -- Internet connection required.
There are two Title Tracks available, one shows by default.
There are two tabs within the editor, Choose the Attributes Tab and we
can animate our titles.
Here the program provides some useful samples used to enhance our projects,
explore the other options from the drop down box.
To use simply drag and drop the clips to the timelines.
|FX Filter Library
There are approximately 100 filters to choose from, certainly far to many for my needs, I am sure there are some that I have not even tried. This image shows the Ultimate version.
The FX effects are dragged over a clip on the timeline, once applied
a small FX can be seen on the top left of the clip.
You will notice that there are some duplications, for instance there
are two Vignettes, I believe the first is provided by Corel the second
a NewBlue effect, compare the two type. A lot of options to choose from.
Finally the Path library
