Cinemagic Overlay


Gordzilla

Question

If I use Cinemagic to create a Project from a bunch of JPEGs, it creates a nice effect where still photos "fly" onto the screen and them fly off.

 

If I edit the created project in VideoWave, there is a background with Overlays containing the JPEGs with the effect on it.

 

Is there a way for me to recreate this effect manually in VideoWave? I can seem to find the effect used or how to do it.

Create a short production using the theme you want. In step 3, click "edit in Video Wave". Look at how that is done and you should be able to replicate it fairly closely. Remember those are designed themes in CineMagic so you may have to work hard to duplicate it. Another way is to produce a mpg file with the images and transitions you want and then add that video as the overlay.

 

Try also looking at some of the transition themes in the slide show assistant listed under the photo tab. It may be closer to what you want. You can also save it and edit it in VideoWave. Ypu can see how that is done. Don't use the slide show assistant in MyDVD for this.

Very close...there doesn't seem to be a way to get the transistions into the overlay.

 

Am I missing someithing?

 

 

 

I'm not in front of PC with EMC9 but this is doable in Videowave. My recollection is that you place a color panel in the main video track. Then assemble the images in the overlay tracks (if you don't see all the overlay tracks, click on the Show/Hide tracks icon in Timeline mode). Right click on an image, look for setting. One of the choices is the effect you're talking about (fly in and fly off). Do this on every image that you want to have the effect. By the want try to overlap the images so that as one flies off, another one is flying in. And the color panel should be long enough (in duration) to accomodate all those "flying" pictures. Just experiment.
