Importing Footage will teach you the basic ways to import footage and options in your project bin.

Cutting Footage use the razor blade tool or trim of the ends.

Make Titles and add motion and colorizing effects to make them stand out.

Make Lower Thirds and use the simple title to change the graphics by selecting different font choices to give you very cool graphics quickly.

Audio Techniques from voiceovers to interview footage to a/b roll and unlinking audio from video. Adjust the levels of volume and learn the audio meters and waveforms.

Matte Layers are simple black and white video files that use squares and rectangles that are animated across the screen. Using the multiply in the opacity blend section, the white is removed and the video appears.

Cropping Effects are used to take out the edges of titles or graphics. Keyframes are added to make these cropping lines move to animate their way to and from the edge of a graphic to its center.

Scaling is used to make things smaller or larger.

Motion can be found under the Effect controls Tab. Use the X and Y coordinates to position the subject. Add the Keyframes to program where it will stop and start.

Opacity determines how much a video or graphic layer will be seen or not seen. Take it down from 100% to 50% and you’ll be able to see through it to whatever is on the next video track.

Masking refers to cutting away the subject in a video with the Free Draw Bezier tool. You’ve probably worked your way around a person in Photoshop, tracing around the arms and body to key out the background. This same principle applies here in creating a mask. Connect the outer dots and cut out the subject.

Effect Filters are an easy way to make something happen right away, but how are they used and what can they do are the questions we will answer in this course.
