  • Crawling montage of small video clips

    Sorry to bother the Forum again but there is just a bit more help I'm after.
    I posted this earlier under the title Push Pull Transition.
    "I'm trying to set up a seamless moving montage of clips crawling across the screen."

    With the help of our friends here I have solved part of the puzzle. I can now scroll a string of small clips seamlessly... in the one spot....BUT
    How do you manage to crawl a string of moving small clips (40%) across the full width of the screen?

    Your further help would be appreciated.

    Not sure I understand fully....but you could maybe create a simple mask clip on the layer above using the background clip and cropping in the layout tool to the desired requirements.....if you need a feather or the like then a simple alpha mask from Photoshop exported as tga with alpha and alpha matte with the background clip....or maybe play with some transition settings on the keyer track.

      I have attached a diagram of what I'm trying to do.
      Each rectangle represents a moving clip. All clips are moving across the screen right to left in a continuous line.
      I have managed to get a number of clips doing this in one spot on the screen but can't figure out how to get a line of clips moving acroos the screen.

        OK - I THINK I get what you're after - You mean a seamless line of clips that are shrunk down to around 40% of their original size (but maintain they're aspect ratio) and are seen to scroll across the bottom (or wherever) of the screen from right to left - Like you sometimes see as a filmstrip effect on DVD menus etc?

        OK - the blind push probably isn't what you're after in that case. Try using the 3D PIP (under Keyers) and take your first clip and reduce the size down to what you are after. Then position it off screen to the right from where you want it to enter. Set your keyframes from the start of the clip. Now position that same clip over off screen to the left at where you want it to exit. Set you keyframes again. Preview that (you may need to render depending on your machine). If that is the effect you want then simply stack your other clips that you want to follow above the starting clip in a staircase pattern. Now copy your first clip and then "Replace, Parts, Mixer" in the other clips (this will copy your size and movement to the other clips in your effect with identical keyframes.

        Now all you have to do is line up each clip in the staircase so that they follow each other on screen - Again becasue it's using 3D PIP you may need to render.

        Sounds more complicated than it is and will only take a few mins to put together.

        Hope this is what you are after ??!!!

        All the best

            That sounds like a pretty neat effect, but how do ya get the film strip edge effect, I.E. the black edge with sprocket squares above and below the image?

              That is as easy as going to photoshop make you film frame with alpha in the middle and putting on top. Very very easy...
