Adding still to beginning of video


ttyrants911

Question

Hi, another newbie here.

 

I have recently started using EMC7 and am trying to add a still to the beginning of the video, before I convert it into Shockwave flash (in another application). I have tried importing the video into Windows Movie maker and adding the still there, which is no problem, but as WMM is basic, it distorts the audio and reduces the quality of the video when I then try to convert it to flash. I thought that using EMC7 would be the better thing to do but can't see anywhere on the screen that will let me drop in a still.

 

Any help please? I am stumped. :blink:

Open VideoWave, click on View (at the top), go down to Media Selector, then select Folders. Now, on the right side of the screen, browse to the folder on your computer that contains the picture, select it, and drag it down to the first blank frame in Storyline in the Production Editor window.

 

Now, do the same thing with the video, dragging it to the 2nd blank frame. You can put a transition between the 2, if you so desire. Play around with it until you get what you want.

 

You will then want to click on File/Output as, and select whatever video file you want to use to convert to Flash. Just make sure that you select Video File, then on the next screen, in the Purpose box, you select Show All.
